Car Park Prangs

It was recently reported in The Daily Mail that drivers have 1,400 car park prangs a day: vehicles
getting bigger and spaces staying the same size blamed for accidents that cost drivers £716m a year.

  • Fortunately most of these incidents are the result of low speed manoeuvres in relatively
    cramped car parks, with damage ranging from front and rear-end collisions to bumps to
    doors, buckled wheels and burst tyres. Personal injury is, therefore, very low.
  • There is little evidence that parking sensors have helped. Indeed we are often told that
    many accidents were caused because the radio was too loud!
  • Although manufacturers say features such as sensors make it easier, safer to park, there is
    no real evidence of this.
  • This equates to an average repair bill of more than £1,400.

Many of these are subject to insurance claims with all the associated costs and delays. However, if
you bring your car to Bumps & Scuffs we can repair most types of damage for about 20% of the
national average – and have your car back to you within a day or so.

Whether the advent of driverless cars will help matters remains to be seen. Just to be on the safe
side maybe we should develop a Bumps & Scuffs app that would enable to driverless car to come to
