This is pretty common sense. Stay in car or else use extra caution. Not rocket science!

Well, they don't have a car-hop on roller blades there to take your money. You need to get out of your vehicle at some point and go to the office to pay. Still, it's an oil-change facility. You should watch for oil on the floor. It could be slippery. What puzzles me and is not explained is that the path from the car to the office should not be confused with the stairs to the pit. And maybe the pit area should have a railing there for extra protection. Usually the pit area is not very wide and is centered under the vehicle. I don't see how it could happen unless she had an abnormal attraction for the grease monkey down there.

she was probably self immersed in her cell phone like most pea brains when she walked herself into the pit. IF THATS TRUE. to bad she lived, would of been one less idiot to deal with. I know,I know, I am mean spirited and just a nasty person.. not true, how would you feel if someone of that description hit your child head on in a car and killed them, while they were self immersed in their mobile face book app? Yeah.. Think about it for a minute..
