The exhausting search for a parking space causes lots of stress for many drivers. Because they know, once again the only vacant parking space is probably the tiny gap against the wall. You have to keep your eye on so many things at once when you’re parking. If you’re in a hurry or nervous it’s so easy to overlook something.
Distance slightly underestimated
In tight parking garages, it's easy to accidentally drive into someone else's car. While this is annoying, it's not tragic: The liability insurance pays for the damage to the other car. And if you damaged your own car as well, your comprehensive insurance will foot the bill. This also applies if no other car is involved and your vehicle, for example, becomes closely acquainted with a post.
Important: If you find yourself in a situation like this, then take a photo of the damage to the other vehicle and your own – as well as the number plates and the accident location. This facilitates subsequent processing, avoids unnecessary debate and helps you to forget those annoying dents. You must also inform the other driver of your unintentional feat by either waiting for them or notifying the police.
