Hi all,

 

May  urge every MCF members here to educate their friends, colleagues, kids, relatives, spouse, in-laws, etc when come to opening car doors. Kindly tell them to open slowly and not to hit their doors onto the cars parked beside them. This is really an act of being considerate and civilised, and such values should start from simple acts such as this.

 

Many car owners suffers unnecessary dents, dings, scuffs, scratches, etc all because of inconsiderate people when opening their car doors. It is not difficult to open slowly and avoid banging their doors onto the car parked beside. If everyone can do this mindfully, our driving stress will cut down a notch because we know we have considerate drivers around us who will take care of our parking environment.

 

Thanks and please spread the word.

You need to park in the middle of 2 parking lots, so no other vehicle will park near yours and their swing doors can't hurt yours, too.

 

Or park in those "Family Lots" in some shopping mall like IKEA, City Square, etc....These lots are bigger.

 

Otherwise, live with it lah. Its part and parcel of car ownership.

If you park beside a van or lorry (eg. Cabstar, Dyna), be extra careful cos their lower edge of their doors when open will hit your car window (at that height) and if strong force may even smashed the glass.

 

This is my observation and when I had to park beside these tall vehicles, I would try to adjust my car so its swing doors won't hit my car windows...

No I don't.  I have enough dents on my doors to stress over such things.

 

But we have to think, can such dents be avoidable easily? Or it is totally inevitable, just like there must be wear and tear on parts if we drive.

 

IMO, a simple act of consideration would have avoided dozens of such unnecessary dents and scuffs. Is it too much to ask for? Or must we accept a driving society that is totally void of basic and simple consideration for others?

 

I think we can all be better than that if we choose to.

Can't possibly avoid? Well I always avoid hitting other cars!

 

It is really a matter of being careful and considerate. It's not a universal law that our door must always hit other cars when we open them.
