Common causes of parking lot accidents

One safety issue that many people are not aware of in Florida is parking lot accidents. Each year, more than 50,000 drivers kill 500 plus people and wound 60,000 victims in parking structure accidents across the country, states CBSNews.com. Many individuals assume that because they are pedestrians and have the right of way that motorists will yield and allow them to walk safely in parking lots. They also believe property owners will exercise due care and take measures to keep their parking structures free from hazards. These assumptions are just some of the factors that contribute to the occurrence of parking lot accidents.
