Parking lots and parking garages can create a particularly dangerous area, and may be fertile ground for predatory criminals. For instance, inadequate lighting, high shrubbery, and hidden structures can create circumstances in which criminals can hide and attack unsuspecting patrons.
In this regard, a whole body of security measures have been developed to enhance the security features of parking lots and garages, including circulation patterns, security officers, video cameras, signage, mirrors and, most importantly, adequate lighting. In general, it is essential that a landowner make necessary accommodations to prevent crimes and take a property that may appear to be "disorganized" to a criminal and make it appear "organized." Criminals hate organization, and are more likely to prey upon disorganized properties than organized.
