How To Drive In A Parking Lot,… UPDATE!!


Angle_parking_lot_diagram
Two main things about operating a vehicle in a parking lot. One, use common sense. I realize that is something that not everyone possesses but the next thing kind of goes a long with it. Be courteous. When you are, you are most likely using common sense.

Use your turn signals. It is usually the lever on the left side protruding out of the steering column. The steering column has the steering wheel attached to it.  The steering wheel is the thing you hold on to to make the vehicle turn left or right.

Enter your space by backing up whenever possible so that you’ll have an easier time when you leave the space.

Drive in the center of your lane and park in the center of your space to make it easier for other people to see you and navigate the lot.

Only park in a space if you’re sure you have enough room. Then pull your vehicle into the space as far as possible so that it will be easier for drivers and pedestrians to move through the lot.

Be careful opening your door as you exit your car to avoid denting the side of the car next to you.

Be aware of location of the lot’s entrances and exits and any no parking zones in the lot. Try to avoid parking near the entrance of the lot, as these areas are often more congested and you’ll have more drivers and pedestrians to deal with as you leave the space.

Watch out for signs indicating special rules that govern driving or parking in the lot. Stop signs are often posted in parking lots at the end of every lane. At uncontrolled intersections in the lot, follow the standard right-of-way rules. Stop and proceed only when it is safe.

Make sure you’re not going the wrong way by watching for arrows on the pavement indicating the designated direction for each lane. Many parking lot lanes are narrow and restricted to a single direction of traffic.

Stay out of spaces where the wheelchair logo is displayed on a sign or pavement marking, as well the striped areas next to them. Only drivers with a disabled parking placard or license plate may park in a designated handicapped space.

DO NOT PARK IN THE FIRE LANES!! AND DON'T CUT ACROSS THE PARKING SPACES,... USE THE LANES PROVIDED FOR YOUR SAFETY AND MINE!
