What Makes Parking Garages Unsafe?

How to Avoid Accidents & Injuries in Parking Garages: 5 Parking Garage Safety Tips

  1. Stay alert: Whether you’re driving or walking, be attentive to your surroundings. Look for signs and avoid using your cellphone.
  2. Take it slow: When driving in parking garages, never speed. In fact, it’s usually smart to take it a bit slower than the posted speed limit, especially when there are more vehicles and pedestrians around.
  3. Park close to the entrance: This can limit the amount of walking you have to do in parking garages. While parking close to the entrance may make it easier to remember where your vehicle is, it can also help you avoid the additional dangers that may come with moving vehicles in the garage.
  4. Make a note of where you park: This can help you avoid wandering and looking around, either of which can put you in danger.
  5. Act defensively: Whether you’re a pedestrian or a driver in a parking garage, assume that others around you won’t follow the rules. This can help you take extra precautions and be ready to react if or when others make dangerous moves.

While your actions can do a lot to keep you safe in parking garages, accidents and injuries still happen. When they do, you can rely on the Amaro Law Firm for help:
