One in Ten accidents occur in Parking lots or parking garages according to a recent study by Nationwide insurance. Men are more likely to get in an accident with another car than are women (37% vs
33%), strike a parking cart (12 percent vs 5 percent) or hit a pedestrian ( 8 percent vs 1 percent).
Additionally, more men than women get in road rage incidents in lots (27 percent vs 20 percent), and more get into physical altercations ( 8 percent vs 2 percent).
So in this Holiday season, it pays to drive slowly, and keep a sharp lookout for other drivers.
It also pays to take a deep breath before responding to other drivers, even if they are inattentive or just plain stupid.
