I also park at the back of lots and yes I do take two spots. One day I was parked in a lot (yes I was sitting in it waiting for the wife), a person parked beside me, they slammed the door into mine once twice three times. Ok I got out of my truck looked at the person asked them wtf, I was told to piss off. I let that person walk away no bad words came from my mouth. I took pix of that persons plate and how the vehicles were parked and the damage done to my truck, drove down the street reported it to the authorities, then went and made an insurance claim against them for the tune of $1000 in damages.

I don't mind giving up the close spots for those that need it and my wife and I enjoy the little extra exercise from the walk.

So far I have been very lucky and have one tiny door ding on my 5 year old Ram.
It was a sacrifice I was happy to make and it come with at least one good perk.

Absolutely. Not many ppl you can trust being parked next to. But someone who drives the same vehicle is as good as it gets..

I watched a guy get out of his slick ride in a parking lot
he walked over about 3 parking spaces & pushed a shopping cart back to his vehicle
he then put it right next to the passenger side door
No one else could park next to him, curb on 1 side, cart on the other side
he was safe as long as a shopping cart attendant didn't make their infrequent patrols

I have to admit that since then, i have done it too

I always park far away from everyone and walk. Even doing that some fool sometimes parks next to my new truck with their $2 car. I always check for dings or scratches. Nothing yet.

Whenever my friend parks his chev in between 2 vehicles in a lot such as our school campus lot, he always take pics of their plates just in case.

I park at the back end of parking lots as much as I can for the same reasons you guys do. I also walk all the way around my truck every time before I get in and after I get out to make sure nothing has happened.

I got a rock chip on my roof last week going down the highway and I was furious. I spent 3 hours touch up painting and clear coating the scratch. By the size of the rock I was surprised there was no dent.

I have 3 big scratches across my roof from the previous owner pulling into his underground parking not deep, but they are there.. That is why i will lift the truck to hide that .. When my dad had his GM dealership, he was delivering my grandparents new car, and when coming down the hwy a dumptruck going the other way had a piece of coal/rock fall out, bounce across and go right through the cars grill and engine block. Car was written off and my grandparents hadn't even drove it yet
