Parking lots are usually chaotic places, especially in congested cities. Drivers searching for a spot, pedestrians crossing the street, and shopping carts flooding the lot are all hazards that can lead to a crash. While drivers are expected to operate their vehicles at a reduced speed and yield the right of way, busy parking lots could be a significant distraction to drivers. Other times, people simply ignore the rules in the parking lot and drive recklessly. All of these factors contribute to parking lot accidents.
