Fargo seeing more parking lot accidents

A high number of accidents have occurred due to road conditions the past few days, said Fargo police Sgt. Jeff Skuza.

“That seems to be a real big problem. The streets are really like Teflon out there,” Skuza said.

He said he is surprised by the number of crashes in parking lots. He estimated perhaps as many as one-third of the total accidents in the Fargo area are due to vehicles hitting a passing vehicle as they back out of a parking spot.

Skuza urges drivers to make sure all windows are cleared and drivers are watching behind them as they back out of parking spots.
