Most of us, if not all, have had near brushes with harm and injury, due to careless or reckless driving in a parking lot. In fact, statistics show that there are more vehicle incidents that occur in parking lots than on the road, when factoring in an equal amount of miles driven on both.
3 Reasons Why the Parking Lot is More Dangerous
- Motorists tend to drive less defensively because of focus on finding a parking spot.
- Unscrupulous motorists are aware that public traffic laws do not apply on private lots.
- Most motorists park head-in. And, most of us are unskilled when it comes to driving backward, which comes to bear when clearing that parking spot.
