Drivers who aren’t paying attention could cause an accident or, even worse, seriously injure a pedestrian.

It’s easy to get distracted by technology like your phone, GPS, or infotainment system when you’re driving in a parking lot. It’s a good idea to set your route to your next destination or get your favorite songs playing before you get on the road. When parking at night or in the evening, look for a parking area and space that is well-lit. Locking your car is one of the easiest ways to help prevent theft when you’re parked in a lot. Take the time to roll your windows up and check that you have your keys before walking away from your vehicle. Use the aisles of the parking lot or garage to navigate to your preferred parking space. Don’t cut across aisles or through spaces to shorten the drive. It’s much more difficult for other drivers or pedestrians to know where you’re going if you don’t stay in the driving areas.
