head up in parking lots

Safety Tips

Did you know that 30% of pedestrian collisions in Montgomery County occurred in parking lots last year – and many of them resulted in severe injuries?

Avoid becoming a statistic!

Pedestrians: Don’t get run over.

  • Stop talking on the phone and texting while walking. Take out the ear buds.
  • Don’t assume drivers see you.
  • Don’t walk behind a vehicle that is backing out.
  • Be aware and constantly look out for moving vehicles.

Drivers: Don’t crash into people.

  • Don’t drive distractedly – it’s illegal to hold a phone or text while driving.
  • Don’t assume pedestrians see you.
  • Be especially cautious backing out of a space.
  • Parking lots are not speedways – slow down!

Safety is everyone’s responsibility!
