Came home from work today and parked a couple of blocks away, because I had the Humvee parked across the driveway. Look what I found! LOL

There was plenty of space between the rear of the car and the curb cut.

Dorks they are.

I bet they'll turn that in to your insurance. You backed into them will be the claim.

I had a pintle on a civy riser / extension on my Durango. Stopped at a light and subcompact plows into me. Made nice work of his grill / fascia/ radiator/ ac condenser. He was a real nervous young type and did not want me to call cops. I had a bent bracket on my wiring adapter. He offers $200 for my trouble. Sure, Parts costs $10 and off I go. He of course needs to wait for a wrecker as bright green puddle on ground....

As they say, Here is your sign....

Nope, I don't live in the flatlands where people don't use their parking brake. Mine works properly and I always use it and properly curb my front wheel when parking even when on flat ground in The City. I was working in the garage and the person started the white car up and left so quickly that I did not see who was driving.

That irate driver was teaching you a lesson about parking in front of a driveway - thus blocking your retreat

The bad part is that the No Driver is still on the loose and probably doesn't realize that She/He is bumping into cars daily.
