After studying data, RAC Insurance found the local shopping centre was the fifth-worst spot for motor vehicle collision claims.

It reported seven out of the top 10 crash claim areas were shopping centres, with Galleria in Morley coming in at number one.

General claims manager Andrew O�Hara said major outlets were high-risk areas.

�What we are seeing is collisions at the intersections surrounding shopping centres, people driving in and people driving out,� he said. �Visibility in shopping centre car parks can also be quite poor.

�People can also be scanning the area looking for a parking spot whilst they are driving through busy areas.�

He advised shoppers to be courteous in car parks.
