Car accidents occur all too often, and the chances are that you will be involved in a car accident at some point in your life. While many accidents happen on roadways, you might be surprised to learn that the number of people injured or killed in nontraffic accidents, such as those that occur in parking lots or driveways, is actually quite high. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that in 2011, nearly 1,700 people were killed and 92,000 people were injured in nontraffic accidents. You might also be surprised to find that one way to reduce your chances of getting into a serious parking lot accident is to actually back into a parking space. This practice is supported by the American Automobile Association (also known as “Triple A”) as the “correct” way to park as it significantly increases safety and visibility in parking lots. Now that you know the appropriate way to park in a parking lot, the following questions are designed to test your knowledge about other factors involved in parking lot accidents.
