While you may feel that a property owner is protecting you from danger (negligent security, inadequate security), it is often the case that property owners put profits over safety, and when that happens dangerous predators seize the opporunity to attack.

Violence Crimes at ATMs

One can find an ATM (automatic teller machine) on almost every street corner. Unfortunately, there are no true record keeping statistics collected by law enforcement to know exactly how often violent crimes like assault, shooting, murder, robbery or kidnapping are committed in Florida and throughout the united states at ATM machines. ATMs are believed to be high crime magnets and crimes at an ATM are often foreseeable.

There are federal and state regulations for automated teller machines (ATMs) in Florida. Florida Statutes 655.960-655.965 designate specific laws applicable to Florida.

Security measures at banks and other ATM locations can play a critical, contributory role in preventing attacks on customers. The owners and operators of ATMs have a responsibility to make the ATM environment safe for all patrons and guests – this includes banks, restaurants, gas stations, convenience stores, grocery stores, etc., that house or has ATMs available to their customers. Some of the safety features can include ATM location, lighting, security features (cameras, guards) and height and placement of shrubbery.
