The precautions Canadian drivers take to protect their ride.
When you pull into the parking lot of your local grocery store, do you park as close to the entrance as possible or near the back of the parking lot where the parking spots are plenty? If it's at the back of the parking lot where there are fewer cars, then you're not alone. According to a recent survey from TD Insurance, 28 per cent of Canadian drivers admit that they've parked as far away as possible from other cars to minimize the risk of damage to their own vehicle.
In fact, the survey found that about 70 per cent of drivers take some sort of added precaution to minimize the risk of a collision or damages to their vehicle. So, if you take a route less travelled to avoid other drivers or park in no-man's land at your local shopping centre, you're in good company.
