Have you ever heard the saying, “The number one cause of divorce is marriage!” Ha ha!
Same thing goes for accidents, in order to avoid accidents, don’t drive. Just kidding, I know those were cheesy.
I’m putting my insurance hat on. I will give you a tip of what to do to avoid a car accidents based on my experience.
More than half of the claims I handled were parking lot accidents. The person reversing is most likely going to be at fault because the vehicles in the aisle have the right away. Every claim is different however the party reversing will most likely be found at fault.
My suggestion is that you park farther away from the main entrance and park all the way through the stall so you don’t have to reverse when you leave. You have a better view moving forward than reversing. This is an example of what I mean:

Simply by doing this you are lowering your chances of being involved in a car accident. I’m trying to help you save money, so stay safe when pull into parking lots.
