Can we please all be a little more careful in parking lots? This is pretty much the mirror image of a story that was posted a few weeks back that I saw….people need to not be such morons in parking lots.
My car was doored at the Clareview LRT parking lot the weekend of the car show so hard that the metal was creased leading to an $744 bill that I now get to pay. I had to get it fixed because the crease would end up rusting eventually ruining my door (not to mention it made my nice car look like a beater). I know who did it based on scuffs on the other parties door and this was further confirmed when an Edmonton Transit Peace officer pulled CCTV footage of the incident.
I left a note and they did not call me back, EPS called them and told them to call me and make amends (and that they were caught on camera) and they still did not call me back. I have a hard time believing you did not know you did this at the time as the force required for you to dent my car that badly had to result in a fairly loud noise.
I completely understand that accidents happen; however, had I done this to someone I would have felt terrible and left an apology note with my contact information to make it right. I work hard for my things and make every effort to keep them nice so to have things like this happen, where the guilty party clearly has no sense of respect for the property of others, is very disheartening. Holding on to your door carefully in a parking lot is common sense, if you have a blonde moment and slam your door into another car I would have thought that basic human decency would lead you to do the right thing.
The responsible vehicle is a black Kia Sedona with the license plate BDT-6491 (I am only posting this because I am 110% certain this is the vehicle that did it). I am pretty certain that although this happened in Edmonton the guilty party lives in Fort Saskatchewan. If this is your car please be more careful in the future and think about how your mistakes can end up costing others a lot of money….there were a lot of things I would have preferred to spent $800 on. If the driver of this car sees this please contact me to do the right thing (…..finally!) you have all my contact info.
