lol ive seen quite a few people ask this and did wonder it myself in the first couple of missions where youre meant to drive somewhere with someone. feels so stupid and immersion breaking when you either mount the kirb hard or just stop on the road. it seems the 48 minute deep dive was the only time we saw a road which had kind of parking space but wouldnt surprise me if they only added that purely for that segment.Everyone who played the game can tell that traffic and AI in open world is not finished.
Side thing, but I also wonder where people park their cars in Night City ? When I want to stop somewhere, I wish I could roleplay proper parking. Nope, usualy nowhere to stop, drive on the sidewalk and pretend it's alright.
After 70+ hours in the game, kinda get used to it and it doesn't bother me that much, it feels now like part of the " design ". But how AI crowd and traffic behaves is truly "breathtaking".
