However, vehicles stationed in shopping malls also have certain security risks. In response to the accident of the polar krypton exhibition hall, some relevant industry insiders pointed out that vehicles in the exhibition hall must ensure that the display information of the vehicle is marked with "exhibition mode" and a warning that the vehicle cannot be started clearly. At the same time, it is also necessary to strengthen the safety education of the staff and improve the management and safety awareness of the car showroom. Of course, parents also need to do a good job of minor safety monitoring to ensure the safety of their children and their surroundings, so as to achieve a better user experience and personnel security.
