…and I know this. Which is why I’m still puzzling over the fact that I decided to look exclusively over my shoulder backing out of a parking space, with a point-of-view that was too high to be able to see the small car parked behind me. It wasn’t until after I hit it, breaking a taillight and ripping my bumper, that I became aware it was back there.
On the plus side, I found the owner, who was a really nice guy and expressed sympathy for me. Mostly because his car had a scratch on it (which it wasn’t even clear came from me), and he could see what I’d done to my own car. So there’s that. But for what was a short run for snacks less than a mile from my house, this will turn out to be a very expensive trip.
But seriously, that camera? Take advantage of it.
