Helpful Hints from joeeze: Avoiding an accident in a parking structure


It would seem obvious that if you're underground you'd turn on your headlights while looking for a parking spot, but it's not common practice.

Let's say, though, that you already do that.

There's another thing that might decrease your chance of having someone back out into you or yourself backing out and being hit: turn on your hazard lights/flashers along with your lights.

The changing light levels might register where a steady intensity doesn't, and you'll never know about the fender bender you missed because you had the good sense to add this trick to your repertoire.

Oh, yeah, I almost forgot:


as they say in England.

Been doing this for a few years now. I don’t see a downside. But I can tell you that lots of people sit in parking spaces with their backup lights lit to no apparent purpose. Probably calling somebody on their phone. Flashers make more sense.
