Why Parking Lot Crashes Occur
Motorists can end up in parking lot collisions, but some of the most common reasons that these accidents occur include:
- Backing into other vehicles in the parking lot
- Distracted driving, which can be due to many activities but most often includes texting or talking on the phone
- Driving too fast for either the parking lot’s posted speed limit or adverse conditions like rain
