New research by insurer NRMA shows that nearly 70 percent of Sydney motorists have had their cars damaged while parked, and most offenders don't bother to leave a note.
The survey of 450 motorists found that the Sydney's Inner City area is the worst, followed by the Inner West and the Eastern Suburbs.
“Sometimes people may not realise they’ve hit another vehicle or maybe they think it’s such a gentle hit they haven’t done any damage," NRMA Insurance spokesperson Andrew Tubb said.
“Although a lot of drivers do not own up to hitting a parked car, there are a lot of witnesses to touch parking — two in three people have seen a car connect with another car while trying to park in a tight spot.”
Fewer than nine percent of the survey's respondents said that a note had been left for them.
No figures were offered for how many of those were dodgy "I'm writing this to make it look like I'm leaving my details" notes.
