Maybe so, but if you live in the city and park on the street - your car will get trashed.


Thanks GrovePath! I've parked on the streets since 2002, and this is the first dent, so I consider myself lucky.


Really - our cars get dinged up all the time - what am I doing wrong? ...and the same was true for me in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Chicago & Philadelphia.


Not to be snarky, but maybe you ARE doing something wrong. I have been parking on the street for almost five years now, and the only dents I have are minor nicks to the rear bumper (from the asswipes who can't parallel park without bumping into the cars in front and back) and one of my motorcycles had its shifting lever bent a little from an asshat trying to park next to it. Nothing else.


OK, trashed might be a bit of a stretch - but yes, I get lots of monthly bumper dings dents and deep black marks into my plastic bumpers - with an occasional bigger dent. Which by the way, my suburban relatives will never understand - their new cars are a big part of their self identities.


I totally understand... I hate to see the scratches, and it annoys me that people parallel park using bumps as their guide as to when they have gone far enough, but I have learned to accept this is part of city living. Every now and then I consider sending the car to get repainted around the bumper area, but then I come to my senses and realize it is a waste of time. :/
