Make your parking more secure with LEDs.
We all know the strange feeling of walking to our cars late at night in the dark. We feel the need to look over our shoulders, unsure of what could lurk in the shadows. Whether you're leaving a restaurant, bar, bank or supermarket, low-light parking can feel a bit … Off. Today, we're going to look at three ways your dark batches could be dangerous and how LED lighting can fix it.
POOR PARKING FIGHT MAY TAKE TO
1. Accidents and Fender Benders
Parking lots are hectic and sometimes difficult to navigate, even during daylight hours. It's hard to be aware of cars when they back up, stop or try to get out of the parking lot. If your parking lot is low in light or low lighting, this makes driving safely even more difficult. It can lead to a higher incidence of fender benders and car accidents. This could even leave it to you, the owner of the lot, responsible for the damages.
2. Pedestrian injuries.
In addition to trying to navigate the parking lot with cars coming in and out, you as a driver should also be aware of pedestrians leaving the shops. It is important to keep in mind pedestrian crossings. However, at night, it can be difficult to take them out of the shadows, especially if they are dressed in dark colors. This could result in injury, leaving the lot owner also responsible for the accident.
3. Crime and robbery
The setting for most crimes on television and in movies is a dark and bleak night, with the guilty dressed in dark colors to "mix." This is described in this way because it is often true in real life. Dark lots can leave cars vulnerable to theft. Poor lighting can also make it difficult to identify people with security cameras. Dark and empty batches can also lead to assault and other acts of violence.
HOW LEDs CAN HELP
By investing in LED lights for your parking lot, you're not only saving money, but keeping your store and lot safe for customers. Brighter lights in parking lots can reduce car accidents, help illuminate pedestrians and pedestrian sidewalks more clearly, and have been shown to reduce crime rates. In addition, LEDs are there for the long term and will not need constant replacement compared to traditional lighting. Poorly lit batches are due to light depreciation, when the bulbs are dimmed and are very yellow/orange, and the bulbs are constantly turned off. With LEDs, lumens depreciate at a much slower rate and can last longer than 50,000 hours.
