    Got distracted whilst trying to reverse the motorhome in my school car park by some pesky kids. Took my eye off the reversing camera briefly .......put a dent in the bumper of our P.E teachers car. Feeling very sad and silly. :(

    No, he wasn't in the car at the time. Very minor bump but it is a 14 plate car! He doesn't actually know yet as I reported it to our receptionist at school who has emailed him but he obviously hasn't checked his mail and hasn't noticed it as it is passenger side rear bumper. I couldn't leave a note as it was absolutely hammering down. Looks like an insurance job as it is a colour coded bumper. Poor bloke only passed his test in September so it is his first car car is I feel really terrible.

    Accidents can happen to anyone. The main thing is no one was hurt, though your pocket might be a little.

    you might be pleasantly surprised how cheaply bumper repairs can be done, presuming the other car owner will let you

    good luck

    After a minor dink, a wise older man told me,

    So what it's only metal, no one got hurt, and that's why you pay all that insurance premium for, to cover accidents.
    Just after my wife ripped the front of her dad's new to him car, caught it on the front fence while reversing.

    Would not worry, that's just life, the ONLY sure way not to have an accident is to lock it away and park it up, the rest is just statistics

    Maybe if he's a really good PE teacher, he can press-up the dent out himself. :)(y)
