Poor parking leads to vehicle damage

Posted: June 22, 2012 - 10:44am

From Staff Reports

A parking critic on Wednesday damaged a woman’s vehicle.

A 22-year-old woman called Columbia County sheriff’s deputies Wednesday evening and said her 1999 Chevrolet 1500 pickup was damaged while in the parking lot of Pizza Joint in Evans.

When she returned to her vehicle at about 7:15 p.m., the woman said she found an unsigned note on her windshield from someone who wrote that she “needed to learn how to park.”

Deputies saw scratches on the driver’s side and tailgate of the truck, but did not estimate a value on the damage.

Poor parking

Poor parking is no excuse to damage someone's vehicle. It is a criminal offense. I hope that the chump(s) who did this is caught. It's highly unlikely, but in that event, I hope he gets bit by karma. What goes around, comes around.

Poor parking

I agree with fatboyhog, but it is true many people don't park correctly. I see it all the time, they leave their vehicle parked with the rear wheels on or over the line. That forces the person parking next to them to leave their vehicle parked very close to the first vehicle or to park with their rear wheels on or over the line on the next parking space. It really annoys me.

And sometimes the correct "parker" is damaged by the other guy. Parked beside a "jacked up" truck @ PetSmart. Came back to find that they had ridden over the back corner of my Durango's bumper. I know they felt it, but they left. Body shop estimate was almost $900 for a replacement bumper and paint. I hate plastic bumper covers...
