How to deal with parking lot accidents

尤其是在假期里, 但即使是在许多典型的周末, parking lots at malls and supermarkets are packed, increasing the possibility of a fender bender and door dings on your car, truck or SUV.

  • 留个便条. If you're unable to learn the other driver, jot down basic information — your name, 电话号码 and a brief explanation of the accident — and place it in a secure spot on the car. Write down the license plate number and take a photo of the damage if you have a camera or smartphone with you.
  • 报警(如有必要). Depending on how extensively the car has been damaged, you may want to involve the police. They'll document the accident and they may help you find the other car's owner.
