Nu, this is New York. There’s barely anywhere to park. So when you find the last spot in town, it’s of course only exactly big enough to squeeze in. And only with your special parking expertise. Then it’s bumper to bumper. But, hey, that’s what bumpers are for, right? To bump the other cars bumper. That’s why they are called bumpers, no? So why does some sourpuss have to complain that you touched his brand new shiny bumper? That’s what they are for. Are you supposed to not park, despite the precious precise space between those two cars, just because someone else might not know what bumpers are for?December 4, 2015 6:17 am at 6:17 am #1114986
Joseph, I completely agree.December 4, 2015 1:33 pm at 1:33 pm #1114987
Bumpers are there as protection for the main body of the car. If damaged, you are responsibleDecember 4, 2015 2:13 pm at 2:13 pm #1114988
That’s absolutely ridiculous. If you put up a fence to protect your lawn am I allowed to damage the fence, because, hey, at least I didn’t damage your lawn, and the fence is only there to protect it?
If you can’t fit in the space without hitting another car, then the space is too small for your car. If you then try and fail you’re liable for all damages.December 4, 2015 2:30 pm at 2:30 pm #1114989
Why do you think they are called “bumpers”?
And if your bumper touches the next cars bumper while parking, there isn’t any damage.December 4, 2015 6:00 pm at 6:00 pm #1114990
didnt say damaged he said “touched” Of course
Yes I am allowed to touch your fence
Of course if you damage the bumper or fence you have to pay .I dont think Joseph is arguing that pointDecember 4, 2015 6:43 pm at 6:43 pm #1114991
Just move to the suburbs. Parking lots. Driveways.December 4, 2015 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #1114992
yeahDecember 4, 2015 7:26 pm at 7:26 pm #1114993

As ubiquitin pointed out, that’s not what the op said, but I’d go further and say that one should also not be liable for small scratches and the like.December 7, 2015 11:58 am at 11:58 am #1114994
What would you do if you witnessed someone ‘bump’ someone else’s bumper and left a dent in the other persons car.
Assuming that you can do more than just tell, like have footage of the bumping incident.
What if the person that bumped the car was a driver, and he might lose his job if this came to light?
Should you just move on with your day or get involved and contact the owner of the car that has been bumped?December 7, 2015 4:27 pm at 4:27 pm #1114995
taking footage is a chiyuv to help a person from losing out &
speaking to the person who did the damage not to run away but do whats right is a CHIYUV of the mitzva of “hocheach tocheach ess amisecha”December 7, 2015 4:48 pm at 4:48 pm #1114996
Why do cars have to be the same size when parked as when they are in use?
