Earlier today it was revealed car park accidents cost Brits £1.5billion a year.

A study revealed 11 per cent, or 3.74 million of all drivers, have seriously damaged their own car while looking for a space to park over the past 12 months.

On average they have been left with a whopping £396 repair bill to fix their mishap.

The research by SKODA UK revealed 40 per cent of drivers have hit a lamppost, tree or space divider in a car park.

Four in 10 of the 2,000 UK motorists polled also admitted they had accidentally hit another car with their door when they were getting out of their vehicle.

And over the past year the average driver has heard the painful sound of their wheels scraping against a kerb on two occasions – causing irritating scuffs and scratches on their alloys.
