In today’s world, you never should take safety for granted, especially when parking in remote areas or an unfamiliar parking garage. However, you can lower the chances of an unpleasant confrontation or dangerous situation by following a few simple rules every time you get ready to leave your car. First, make sure you write down where you’re parked, to avoid spending long minutes wandering around a dark, empty garage looking for your car. Next, always try to back into a space. It allows for an easier exit, and allows you more visibility getting in and out of your vehicle. Finally, trust your instincts. Don’t hesitate to ask for an escort from a parking lot attendant if you feel unsafe. Better to be slightly embarrassed than sorry later.
