Happy Holidays - Be Careful Out There!

During the Holiday shopping season, drivers need to be careful and considerate in large parking lots. People are excited and rushed, and not paying enough attention while driving or walking. Keep that in mind to keep it safe.

During the Holiday shopping season, drivers need to be careful and considerate in large parking lots. People are excited and rushed, and not paying enough attention while driving or walking. Keep that in mind to keep it safe. Treat aisles like public roads: stay to the right and use your turn signals to inform drivers and pedestrians. Move slowly and watch carefully; sometimes you have to do the thinking for the other person. Be patient even when others aren't. Some drivers will be aggressive in claiming a close parking space; let them. Others won't be courteous when you want to back out; just wait. If you're extra-polite, it just might make the day for a frustrated shopper, and it reminds everyone of the true spirit of the season. Our Students learn to park with precision, but if you make a mistake and scrape another car, you MUST leave a note with contact information to take responsibility for the unintended incident. Leaving the scene without a note is considered a hit-and-run misdemeanor. Don't think you'll get away with it; there are people all around, and many shopping centers have surveillance cameras. Be patient, smile, and have a Happy Holiday season!
