The injured parties were a 20-year-old man seated in a pickup truck and a 72-year-old female pedestrian. The older woman had been standing next to a car that was caught up in the chain-reaction crash caused by the speeding Nercedes-Benz. Both the accident victims required hospital treatment for their injuries.
So many of us rush around, late for work or hurrying to finish errands, without thinking. I can't tell you how many times I've seen people speeding in parking lots, especially at the end of the day or during holiday sales. As a Virginia car accident attorney, I see this behavior as an accident just waiting to happen.
Speed bumps are one way to slow drivers down in parking lots, but something more needs to be done to prevent speeding.
