I nominate myself, backing up in a pretty tight parking lot and looking for all of the cars, shoulda also been keeping an eye on the fucking pillars... Luckily Xterra has a steel bumper on the back and an unpainted plastic "step" on top so fixing it won't be too expensive. Funnily the pillar had more damage than the car...

i've had something similar a while ago
backing up, and my parking sensors going crazy like hell, but there wasn't anything behind me!

so i assumed "trigger by the grass"
it wasn't...a big pole hidden behind my C-pillar

i did need a new reflector :(

I think this fits here. Check your tyres, peeps!

It's a budget tyre called the Grenlander Cori, probably curb damage that actually caused this though.

Edit: Whoops, forgot the link. Thanks @jack_christie.

The image of that tyre will haunt me in my dreams...

On a more serious note, how oblivious can some people be?

I followed a guy pulling a boat trailer once where the boat was dragging off the back of the trailer for about 15 miles. He had to stop at a light and somebody turning off the road stopped next to him and told him to look at the boat. I had flashed my lights several times from behind him to try and get his attention, but he never appeared to look in his mirrors.
