During the holiday season, people are out and about shopping. What this means for your employees is an added risk when driving with the increase of foot traffic. More than 50,000 crashes occur annually in parking lots and garage structures.
Parking lots are intense driving environments that require both drivers and pedestrians to pay close attention.
One of the most common culprits of parking lot crashes is distracted driving. A National Safety Council survey found that 66% of survey respondents felt comfortable making calls while driving in a parking lot. While this is problematic, you can be part of the solution and help your organization implement an organization-wide cell phone policy.
