Points to know about surface defects in commercial parking lots

Whether you’re a home owner or a business owner, you have a responsibility to those that you invite over within regards to the safety of the surfaces of your property. So for example, there’s a store, a major department store, or a chain and there parking lot needs repair and has big divots, potholes, and areas that are wear away as a result of either age, salt, or freezing and they get let go, those defects get larger and larger.  Especially with older and ageing population of people that are carrying things back to the car, you’re not always looking exactly where you’re stepping, you’re allowed to expect to some degree that the parking lot will be safe for you to walk across.
