Electronic Riding Shopping Carts Can Electrocute Someone If Left in the Rain
There are many different types of shopping carts that can cause personal injury to customers at a supermarket store. An electronic riding shopping cart can become an electrocution hazard, if the riding vehicles are left out in the rain at the supermarket.
The shopping cart attendants are responsible to take and bring in the metal shopping hand carts, as well as the riding shopping handicap carts during the shift. If these carts are left outside, they will be left to deteriorate in the elements, whereby:
Shopping Carts Left in Parking Lots Become Driving Hazards for Customers
- Metal shopping carts will rust
- Rust on metal carts can produce tetanus and other disease
- Rust on the shopping cart can cut customers and children
- Rain on the shopping cart can make them slippery to hold
- Rain on the riding shopping cart can electrocute the rider
- Rain on the wheels of the shopping carts can push them into cars
If a supermarket shopping cart attendant is negligent in bringing in shopping carts during the day, then the shopping carts will move by the wind and rain all over the parking lot. These shopping carts will literally have a mind of their own! They will get in the way of shoppers, block vehicles, run in the middle of the streets, cause car accidents, create havoc where drivers need to run into pedestrians to avoid hitting the shopping carts and more issues.
If the supermarket shopping cart attendant is negligent in returning shopping carts to the store, then there will be many hazardous situations that will be created outside of the store. The shopping carts will be susceptible to:
- Run free in the parking lot
- Block in cars
- Create hazards for cars
- Create hazards for pedestrians walking to their cars
- Run over small children
- Get rusty in the rain
- Electrocute scooter riders if units are left in the rain
Typical Injuries from a Shopping Cart Accident
People can be seriously injured from an accident involving a shopping cart. If the shopping cart causes a car accident, or several car pile-up in the parking lot, you can expect to receive many serious injuries from that accident. When shopping carts are meant to be allowed to roam free in a parking lot, drivers will need to drive defensively to get away from and around the loose shopping carts.
The wrangling and bringing in of the supermarket store shopping carts is the job of the cart attendant. If this individual is not bringing in the carts, many people could be injured as a domino effect for the carts running loose in the parking lot. People can be hit by cars trying to avoid a runaway shopping cart, cars can have accidents backing into unsuspecting shopping carts, and there can be personal injuries from people cutting their hands on rusty shopping carts left out in the elements and the rain. Over time, these unattended shopping carts can become serious hazards for the supermarket store, and many people can be seriously injured in the process.
Car Accidents May Be Increased with Runaway Shopping Carts in the Supermarket Parking Lot
A car accident can occur quite easily, when there are runaway shopping carts in a supermarket parking lot. The shopping carts will be a hazard to cars in the parking lot when the shopping carts:
- Run out alone into oncoming traffic in severe crosswinds
- Bang up against cars and damage car doors and quarter panels
- Increase parking lot accidents and vehicle crashes
- Prevent drivers from being able to stop in time to avoid an accident
- Injure children when drivers swerve to miss runaway shopping carts
- Increase accidents when runaway shopping carts do not obey traffic signals
- Erratic shopping carts on the move will cause serious loss, damage and personal injuries
