Holiday parking lot dangers and what you can do to avoid them

When it comes to the holidays, parking lots are a danger zone. There are many people walking between vehicles and in the roads, and you have to be careful to back out when no traffic is coming. Carts and other hazards can be present as well.

So, how can you safely get through this holiday season without being involved in an accident? First, remember that stores are going to be busy. Plan to take your time and be cautious.

Always look for pedestrians. Even when you're riding a motorcycle, it can sometimes be difficult to see a pedestrian who pops out from behind another vehicle.

Other drivers pulling out may not see you as you move through the parking lot, so keep your lights on and use your horn if you have to. Keep your distance from vehicles if you can; this can mean parking at the end of the lot where there is less traffic or waiting until times with less traffic to shop.

Accidents are likely to happen, so keep your insurance card handy. You should keep one copy for yourself and another for cases of emergency. Trade your card with the other driver's if you are in an accident; this card has all the information you, your agent and your attorney will need to make a claim against a negligent driver.

Take your time, be aware of your surroundings and enjoy the holiday season. If you are hit, remember to get the information you need to make a claim. Seek out medical treatment immediately, and don't wait to start your claim.
