Distracted drivers can wreak havoc on the roads and in parking lots. In fact, the false sense of security motorists tend to feel in parking lots can make distracted driving an even bigger problem in parking lots, when compared to roadways. That’s likely why as many as 2 in 3 drivers admit to distracted driving in parking lots.1

How Distracted Driving Contributes to Parking Lot Accidents
Drivers who aren’t paying attention to their surroundings are far more likely to crash into other vehicles, parking lot features, and even pedestrians. Distractions, which can come from cellphones, other passengers, or anything else, sharply increase the risk of accidents. That’s because when drivers are distracted:
- They miss seeing essential visual cues: These cues can be anything from stop signs and crosswalks to brake lights and pedestrians.
- They can suffer from inattention blindness: This phenomenon occurs when distractions cause people to miss seeing important visual cues, despite looking directly at them.
Tragically, any distraction that diverts a driver’s attention for a little as few seconds can be enough to cause parking lot accidents, injuries, and deaths.
How Do I Know If a Distracted Driver Caused My Parking Lot Accident?
After a parking lot accident, it can be difficult to know if driver distraction played a role in causing the crash. Some evidence that can be helpful to making this determination can include (and is not limited to):
- Witness statements
- Cellphone records
- Security camera surveillance footage
When it’s time to determine whether driver distraction or any other form of negligence contributed to a parking lot accident, it’s time to contact the Amaro Law Firm. We’re here for you, ready to help.
