Why doesn't it explain what happened to cause the injury? What was the plaintiff doing? What was the area like, Wherr did the injury occur etc. ? Articles like this with no details are just silly attention grabbers.

parking rules need to be enforced. when the lazy people park all along the front of buildings it creates a narrow passage for the 2 way traffic left to go around them and also limits visibility of pedestrians crossing from stores to parking lot. The previous owner used to have security guards to make drivers move along. This is a no standing fire zone. local police should ticket offenders. Rules are not meant to be broken,
