I am writing this to advise the public with the on going car accidents in Menards parking lot since they have opened. There have been 15 documented T- Bone style accidents prior to November 17, 2017 from the Bazetta Police Dept.
I was involved in one on Nov. 17 making that 16 accidents to date. Menards management team is aware of the safety issues but their corporate office has not done anything to prevent them. The officers on site told me that they had a meeting with their management team to try to reduce the number of incidents but it fell on deaf ears.
Stop signs, turning indicators or any other markings are not posted on the lot. You can not see on coming traffic because of the way the parking lot is striped. Typically islands or striped areas in the lot are marked so you can see traffic in both directions near the end of the isles. The way the lot is striped there are blind spots where you cannot see oncoming traffic (see photos)
I did send a certified letter to Menards back in February and they have not acknowledged it.
The public should be aware of how dangerous their parking lot is. Menards has a corporate responsibility to keep their customers safe in and out of the store; they are definitely aware of this dangerous parking lot but refuse to do anything to make it safer.
