Parking Lot Safety Tips

Whether you’re heading to the grocery store or the mall, odds are you’re utilizing the parking lot. Once you’re off the road, it’s easy to lose focus as you scan the rows for a parking spot. Other drivers do the same and the result can cost you both time and money. Even worse, you could make it in and out of the store only to find your car broken into. Don’t be a victim! Take these parking lot safety tips from us here at Wantagh Mazda!

  • Cargo Cover – If you have a lot of bags, it’s easy to drop them off at your car before heading back into the store. However, if you leave your purchases in plain sight, they become an easy target for thieves. Pulling out the cargo cover is an easy way to conceal your purchases and reduce your risk.
  • Parking Lot SafetyBack In – Pulling into a parking space is much faster than backing in, but your view is limited when leaving. Reversing is much harder than pulling straight out of a parking spot. When you first arrive, take the time to back into a spot.
  • Park Away – The closer your vehicle is to the store, the more people that will walk by it. As a result, your odds of becoming a victim of theft increase. Parking further away may mean more walking but it could save your possessions. Make sure the area is well lit for your own safety!

2017 to Bring New Mazda Headquarters Location

Mazda Headquarters LocationMazda’s been in the same location for nearly three decades, but now it’s all going to change. The Japanese automaker has a found a new place to call home near the Irvine Spectrum. Having signed a 10-year lease, Mazda is looking to offer a state-of-the-art facility for the people who work there.

Mazda has occupied its current headquarters since 1987. The space was constructed for the automaker and at five stories, it was the first high-rise development in Irvine. However, the city’s change has also sparked a change in Mazda as well.

The new Mazda headquarters location won’t move far from its current spot, but it will offer a better work environment and customer experience.

“It is one thing to build outstanding vehicles, but the people who work for Mazda must also feel that their workspace is as good as the cars we build,” said Masahiro Moro, president and CEO, MNAO,

At 21 floors, this is the tallest building in Orange County, offering 10-foot floor-to-ceiling glass on every floor. The building itself was awarded and recognized as “Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR.” Mazda will take over the first five floors come 2017.

We here at Wantagh Mazda are happy to see Mazda continuing to develop and grow more in every way possible!
