WALLMART parking lot not so bright

Last evening, while I was driving into the parking lot of WALLMART.  I noticed it was creepy, and dark.  There were very few lights on. I thought about talking with the manager, but became hesitant as this is something that is very obvious, and has been getting worse as the months go by.  Anyone walking into, or out of the store at dark thirty could see that the lot is not fully engulfed with lights.
My fear is that this is an accident waiting to happen.  When a parking lot is lite haphazardly it becomes unsafe for anyone.  It is an accident waiting to happen.  
The parking lot almost  had a depressing feel to it.
I enjoy shopping at WALLMART, but will not go in the later evening because I do not feel it is safe.
 As I was exiting the lot, I realized how difficult it was to see the people walking to their vehicles.
I have lived here for almost a year, and the parking lot has progressively gotten darker and darker.  
What are your thoughts?

I was referring to the Murrieta Hot Springs location. Alec- I appreciate your response, however, i don't think your comment is relevant to the question asked.

Laura, I agree, I think you have brought up a good point. Not sure what Alec is talking about? I shop there often and I have never seen a bunch of Filipinos working there.... and so what if there was? They have all different kinds of people working there. Strange...hmmmm? Regardless, I think it's a good idea to mention it to the manager and I would contact headquarters.. It may save someone's life. People drive thru that parking lot like maniacs...

I agree the parking lot is dark pulling in there. But I think it has to do with it's location and how close it is to the interstate. I agree people need to be cautious in that parking lot. Everyone is always in such a big hurry to get in and out of there. If you slow down a bit, you'll do just fine!!

I visited the Mount Palomar Observatory (MPO) some time ago. A docent explained that CalTech - MPO had negotiated with cities in the valley to help reduce "light pollution" from businesses, sports parks, parking lots, etc. by creating local ordinances regulating the amount and type of light leaked into the sky. I'm aware that some shopping centers in the area have been asked to reduce excessive lighting. It's possible that Walmart has also been asked to comply.

I think its more possible that cheap-ass Walmart is trying to save electricity, rather than complying with a request from a powerless NGO.
