Icy parking lots create a slippery situation for downtown drivers

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

While the icy conditions are improving in some areas, they are still taking a toll on parking lots and the bottom of almost any hill you can find.

Drivers who parked in a lot near Riverside and Bernard had quite the surprise Thursday.

Leah Harris told KHQ she parked in the same parking lot students at Glen Dow use on a daily basis. She went to get her purse and noticed something strange. Her SUV had moved!

Harris told us that she called Diamond Parking about the icy situation, and the company told her that they plow and gravel their parking lots after every storm.

They also told her that drivers park in their lots at their own risk and they are not liable for any damage caused by parked cars sliding on the ice.

Harris’ SUV was not damaged, but wanted to warn drivers so that this doesn’t happen to them.

KHQ reached out to Diamond Parking for comment, but have not heard back from them at this time.

Harris says she is going to think twice before using this parking lot in the winter.

If you see any icy patches in Spokane, the city asks that you report the spots so they can take care of them.

You can report areas by calling (509) 755-CITY.

    KHQ.COM - Most mothers can only hope by the time their children grow up and move out of the house, they've learned all the necessary things to be a successful adult, including the basic knowledge that a turkey must be cooked in an oven, or perhaps in a smoker... NOT in a microwave. For this reason a new prank-challenge going around on Facebook is resulting in some hilarious text conversations between mothers and their grown children.

    MILTON, W.V. - Go home raccoons, you're rabid…… I mean, drunk. A police department in West Virginia received multiple calls regarding rabid raccoons earlier this week. Turns out the raccoons happened to be simply drunk on fermented crabapples.

    Should you refinance your vehicle loan? (sponsored)

    Borrowers often come out ahead ? but do the math to make sure. If you found a $100 bill on the sidewalk, you’d probably pick it up. Yet many car and RV owners overlook the chance to pocket cash by refinancing their vehicle loans at a lower rate. Credit unions, banks, and other lenders compete for vehicle loans by regularly offering refinancing deals that cost you almost nothing. Some lenders offer cash back (typically a percentage of your refinanced loan) or other incentives....
