New Haven parking lots can be risky business. Depending on the lot, it could be congested with a lot of moving vehicles (of all sizes: cars, trucks, buses, etc.) and pedestrians. Auto accidents happen in parking lots throughout the year, but the risk is increased during the holiday season. In fact, lots of fender benders go unreported during this time of year.

Here are a few ways to stay safe while maneuvering your way through:

  1. Stay alert. Always watch for other cars and people speeding and walking. Avoid two-way lanes where possible.
  2. Be polite. Do not take up 2 spots when you only need one.
  3. Protect your car. Park away from buildings and not on the ends of rows. Stay in a well-lit area at night.
  4. Eyes open. Make sure you can scan the entire field before backing out.
  5. Extra aware at the post office. The post office parking lot has a the highest frequency of accidents.
