Tis the Season for Parking Lot Accidents (Just the Stats)

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.
