I would "MOVE" if the parking was bad where I lived.

There is no way I would live in a place that did not provide decent parking. That is one of the first things I would look for before signing a lease. Most of the apartment buildings don't have wide enough spaces for you to park without having a problem opening the door wide enough to get out without hitting the car next to you. It is wrong but that is something to check before you even think about moving in.

I look at it like this - If any damage has to be done to my car, I'd rather it be on the passenger side. So, every time I get in my car (which is a lot, DD) I don't have to be constantly reminded of it.

But, usually I'm lucky enough to find a corner spot or park next to a smaller car... Never trucks - f to the uck no (no offense, I do like trucks).

What the OP needs is:::::

One of those cars that park themselves. They always park perfect between the lines. Then he would not get notes on his car.

Keep it civil guys. Thread will be closed if it keeps up.

OP, IMO, someone thought the right side of your car was too close to their door or they had a "claimed" spot and are butthurt. I'd park in the middle of the spot just so some jackass does not pull up next to you on the right and swing the door open and ding your right side because ppl are oblivious.

Sorry to say this OP, but 90% of ppl could care less about their own car, especially others. If u depend on others parking correct l, u will have tons more dings. If u really cared about your car and try not to be "that guy" u should find a end spot or somewhere safe from ppl who can care less

Honestly, I couldn't imagine having a nice car in an apt complex... i just couldn't. When I lived in the dorms I had a 91GT that I really kept clean and then one night some jackass just threw his car in reverse and floored it out of his spot without even looking. Yeah. Took the $2500 his insurance quoted me, pocketed it, sold the car as a donor car and bought a beater. I did not get another nice car till I moved into a legit house with roomates and took the smallest bedroom in exchange for me getting the garage.

I'm going to state the obvious - but its a well-known fact that college students are currently the absolute worst at caring for or maintaining their's and others' vehicles.

So hopefully if you're currently a college student with a 'nice car' (especially living on campus), hopefully you've got $$$ to protect your investment (premium parking).

Exactly what I did. Reserved parking, and either find an end space, or park next to the stairs, so that I have plenty of room to park, no one on my driver side, and lots of space on my passenger side.

I'm not a college student thankfully. If I was there'd be no way I'd ever live on campus. The apartment I live in are not that bad. I had no problems when I had my C6. I don't know what the problem is now. I adjusted fire and park wayyy down in the lower lot now between two semi trucks that haven't moved in the two years I've lived here. A personal guarded spot all to myself.

Yea no such thing as premium parking at my school. They give you a sticker and tell you what lots you can park in, and they are always packed.

I am also a college student. I do everything I can to take care of my car and always park away from people whenever possible. When it's not possible, I still try to park right in the middle of the lane to minimize the chance of some dumb *** giving me a door ding.

Unfortunately, I discovered a door ding on my car last week. I really hate stupid people that drive ugly, boring, generic cars that they don't car about. These are the people that damage our cars.

It always seems as though no matter where I park my cars, even if I park way at the end of the lot 20 spaces away from any othr car. I'll walk out from whatever I'm doing and they'll be another car parked right next to me. It always happens to be some little ricer car, too. Some slammed Civic or riced out Golf GTI. Truth be told though, I'd rather they park next to me than a mom in a minivan with her pack of snot gobblins flinging open their doors without a care in the world.

Lol yeah I always park on the end or in a spot with a zoned off walkway for people.

This one time I parked on the line that separates the pedestrian walkway and my spot and gave the next spot at least 5 foot but this stupid lady still parked next to me real close and dinged my car. I saw her get in her car from where I was sitting at Starbucks and practically felt the ding as I looked. She took off before I could get out the door to stop her.

Sometimes no matter what you do you get screwed lol

Worse is some little old lady. One time good thing I got out of dinner in time. I swear I got to my car just as this little old 150 year old great great great great grandlady was about to get out of her car. She was parked with barely two feet of space between her car and mine. For sure it woulda been a whack job on the passenger door.

She parked in the handicap spot. I like to park next to handicap spots cuz they have a whole empty space worth usually to one side of the car and on the chance that someone needs the handi spot they usually compensate by parking further towards to zoned off space if I'm there. Win win situation.

Now I will give you something else to think about that will drive you crazy. Never happened to me, but I always think about it.

Park next to a pedestrian walkway increases your chances of some jealous person walking by to just nonchalantly and inconspicuously drag their keys along your car, or anything else they may be carrying, even if unintentionally.

Very true but usually these walkways are right in front of some store and highly visible so there's usually a deterrent. I think it may be worse if you park in a far off spot away from view. If they really want to or have the balls to key your car they would do it to a far away car.

But yeah what I need to worry about are people with flingy purses that might scrape the car. But usually the walkways are wide enough for two people

No premium parking offered from my university. Its always packed by the time I get to school. Specifically Monday's and Wednesday's, I have class at 11:45 am; rarely a free spot at this hour. So what I do is, I know there's a school parking lot waaaay out there. Not many park at this lot since its so far away, knowing this I head out to that parking lot every time even if I have the permit to park closer. There's a shuttle bus to give me a ride and drop me off at the university but I don't mind the walking at all, its good for you

Only downside is if it rains, I'm getting soaked but then if it does rain I can wait for the shuttle bus.

Tuesday's and Thursday's are a different story, I have class late in the afternoon so there's more parking spots. Throughout the whole university there's only 4 parallel parking spaces, if ones free I take it. Those spots are a pretty good size, not to mention mustangs and camaros are usually the ones that park there.

You could always go to a private liberal arts college, where half the students have nicer cars than the faculty lol. Although not much actual useful learning going on there unless you are staying in education.

When I said 'premium parking' I meant it as general as possible. Money talks...

Ex: say your dorm or apartment has assigned parking. Find someone who was lucky enough to be assigned to or has an end spot. Ask them if they're willing to trade spots with you if you work out a deal with them or something. Whether that's you giving them $20/wk for their spot or a simple trade - its something you can do to minimize potential damage to your vehicle in a "bad" area.

Easy solution. Leave the 'stang at home, and drive a "beater". I used to get uptight and unwound when I drove the Mustang around. To date, it does not have one door ding; I own a home, and have the luxury of parking it in a garage. When its "out", I find end spots whenever possible, or another nice car to carefully park next to, as "nice car" drivers are usually respectful of others.

I ended up buying a 2000 Ford Ranger, as my 'beater' vehicle. Its got just the right fade of dull paint to add to its patina; this seems to be cool now with all the rat rods and trucks being built with this in mind.

If the truck gets a ding, it adds to its character, and I figure I saved my Mustang or someone elses pristeen car from that ding.

Ah, when you put it that way I don't have to worry. I don't live on campus or apartment but yeah money does talk.

In the end, if one can't get a better spot one has to deal with it. If one uses their stang as a daily driver it faces more of a risk being dinged and what not; hopefully it never happens. I'm lucky enough, here many people don't park at far spots and most people respect someone else's property...even if they have a beat up car. But still when I can't park far away I make a a good selection where to park, usually by a "nice car" can't be too safe.

That's just ignorance. That rich dbag had an end spot with AMPLE room (wasn't one of those parking lots with tight spaces), yet he still took two spots.

I can't think of any situation when it is appropriate to park like that.

Nope. That's exactly where I go and my car got messed with more than at my ghetto high school. Also it's a liberal arts college but they have one of the best business programs on the west coast.

I always park a little off center since our doors are a little longer than a 4-door car's.

Tonight, when I get home I'm thinking about testing the waters and truely double parking just to be a "Richard."

I think you were very fortunate that someone left you a note and didn't leave one on your paint job! I don't think you will be that Lucky next time.

Bullitts are better than Bullets
Actually, yeah business, language and some communications stuff are pretty good at the liberal arts college my wife and I went to. However, we both saw way too many ppl who were just going to school because Mom and Dad say "society says you go to college so you're going to college". Racking up $40k a year in tuition/room/board and then having no marketable skill when they get out. Mortar Board off, McDonald's cap on.

With that said, I was just up there to meet with someone and I drive into the parking lot and there are BMWs, Land Rovers, Lexuses (Lexii?) and even some brand new 5.0s in the student section. And I go "oh, it must be someone going back for their Master's degree". No, some 18 yr old kid gets out of the 5.0 or some 19 yr old girl who clearly thinks she is a Princess gets out of a BMW 5 series. Fml...

edit: Also, this is why I would not have much of a problem leaving my Mustang in that parking lot. Not over by the fraternities but in the commuter lot, there are a LOT nicer cars parked there than a Mustang.

Never take up two spaces. "EVER"

Check it out:


A very good reason not to take up two spaces or park to close to the line.

You sometimes wonder if this stuff has to be staged. First, who would do that with their own vehicle, and second, stay there? Needless to say, cameras are everywhere nowadays.
