Private Drive or Parking Lot Accident

In Wisconsin a private drive or parking lot accident is handled like an accident occurring on a public highway or street. However, the usual rules of the road may not apply. The highway rules of the road are the laws in the Wisconsin Statutes Chapter 346 and in the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Motorists' Handbook. For example, on a public roadway all drivers have a duty to maintain a lookout and to keep their vehicle under management and control. On a private road or parking lot, a driver does not have those specific duties of care unless he knows or should know that there is another car or person in the area. Here is how some Wisconsin cases have addressed the issue over the years.
