Despite Christmas and my birthday it's been a sh!t week because…
On Monday in an ‘award winning’ car park for vehicle and customer security, my car was driven into causing £1200 damage – I’ve only had it 8 months… To top it, today in the same car park my car was vandalised with white wood gloss paint.

That is bloody annoying, had big dents left in wing before and car park were useless.
However sometimes you can get lucky, I was parked in garden centre car park getting Xmas tree. Was just fixing tree and toddler in place when someone drove into parked car in worst attempt at parking I have ever seen. They got out and had a look then jumped back in and legged it.
Took their reg number and car type and colour. Left a note under damaged car and the chap rang me. Police got involved and turns out chap came round, offered to pay for damages and apologised etc.
Hope the car park do provide some help.Posted 5 years ago
Thanks for the kind words -it all helps when you need to vent!
It was in Sutton Coldfield and despite said award winning – does not have CCTV on all levels. To be fair the car park staff were very helpful, but without CCTV there is not much they could do.
Here is indeed to (In car terms) a better 2013!

Stuff like this boils my pi$$.
Here’s a bloke that’s worked hard to buy a nice car, or even if its a company car he still works for it, and some effing rrrrshole thinks it’s OK to run into it and drive off, or funny to pour paint on it. People like that really do need a good hiding.
You have my sympathy, OP.
It’s all about attitude. I was sitting in my car (early for an interview) in a car park a few weeks ago and this 4×4 pulls up next to me. Someone gets out and bangs the door into mine. They had at seen me.. I roll down the window “Excuse me, would you mind not clouting my car please”Posted 5 years ago
“Oooh sorry” was the very sarcastically blunt reply as they wandered off. They didn’t give a shit. Now, there was no damage done but that’s really not the point. I did feel like leaving a nice toe sized dent in their door to be honest.argooseMember
It’s all greed, car parks are there to make money. Either by paying for the space or getting more cars into set area to maximize foot fall in your shop.Posted 5 years ago
All making for smaller spaces and zombie shoppers not taking extra care to use them.
As for the paint,you said you’ve not long had car, was it previously owned by twunt and someone trying to settle old grudge, and you copped for it unfortunately.fattyre500Member
Car Park Award Categories:
Most piss poorly laid out.
Tightest parking spaces.
Most expensive parking fees.
..and finally the green energy saving award for the car park which saves the most electricity by being poorly lit and having the cctv turned off for 99% of the **** time !!!Posted 5 years agoWoodySubscriber
hopefully I have not given people reason to do something like that!
That was my first thought, as once is an ‘accident’ but paint damage so closely after is suspicious.
Maybe the person who drove into your car the first time blamed you for being parked invisibly and came back to exact revenge. Who can fathom the mindset of these moronic twunts.Posted 5 years ago
