No duty to provide sufficient parking or otherwise to protect plaintiffs against dangers arising from parking elsewhere.

April 1, 2017
Newell v. Montana W., Inc., PICS Case No. 17-0134 (Pa. Super. Jan. 19, 2017)

Business owners do not owe a duty to provide sufficient parking on their premises or otherwise protect plaintiffs from dangers on adjoining roadways. Plaintiffs who choose to walk on public roads place themselves at risk of injury. Where a property owner’s parking lot meets local zoning ordinance requirements, there is no further duty owed to patrons who choose to park elsewhere as the property does not own or control the other land.
