Cars Threaten Safety of People Inside Buildings


February 28, 2020

USA-  About 500 people tragically die in the United States every year in crashes involving cars colliding with buildings, according to USA.STREETSBLOG.ORG. This is an underreported phenomenon that occurs daily.*

Sadly it is not is not uncommon for drivers to crash their vehicles into buildings. According to statistics, this happens about 60 times every day. In addition to killing hundreds of people every year,  at least 4,000 or more people become injured from these types of collisions. 

These incidents are often simple mistakes, not the result of horrible collisions or police chases. The issue has to do with the fact that our roads are so close to our buildings.  Parking spaces might be just a few feet away from the front of a building. 

Storefront crashes are completely preventable. Improving the design of parking lots and storefronts can cut down on these collisions and save lives.  Eighty-seven percent of these incidents occur at shops, restaurants or other commercial spaces.  Traffic calming measures are recommended in parking lots to help slow people down near buildings. 

It is well documented that most accidents can be prevented with a little extra care and safety education.  Since 1984, Montlick & Associates has been dedicated to keeping children and families safe on the roadway.  Our commitment runs deep through our extensive, award-winning public service programs that provide people the information they need to avoid injuries.  To learn about our Don't Drink and Drive Campaign, Child Passenger Safety Programs, Booster Seat Campaign and much more, visit montlick.com and click on “community service,” or simply click here.
