Automated Parking Can Help Reduce Serious Crimes and Personal Injury in Parking Garages

Parking lots and garages are frequently reported as the site of serious crimes and personal injuries. Recent headlines in newspapers around the country include:

– New Orleans – a parking valet attendant crashes into several cars, killing 1 injuring 2
– Reno, Nevada – a man was robbed at gunpoint by two suspects in his apartment building’s parking lot
– New York – a teenager is convicted of stabbing an immigrant in a parking garage
– Houston, TX – a man is reported in critical condition after driving off the upper level of a parking garage

These are just a few examples of incidents occurring day after day in parking lots and garages around the US. Contributing factors include poor lighting, few people, lack of visibility, etc.

Security is a key benefit of automated parking garages such as Robotic Parking Systems. You don’t have to wander around a dark, deserted garage going to and from your car. You drop off and pick up your car at well lighted, ground level entry / exit stations. Parking attendants are frequently close by. No one enters the inside of the garage or has access to your car since the vehicles are moved via a computerized system of machines and lifts. These are some of the factors that contribute to the increased security of a Robotic Parking System that can help reduce serious crimes and personal injury in the parking environment.
