Shocking photo of two cars parked VERY close together sparks heated debate – can you see who was in the wrong?
- Debate sparked online after a photo posted showing two parked car touching
- While it is unclear which driver hit the other many commenters had theories
- Some said the blue car is over the line so is at fault regardless of who hit who
A bizarre parking job at a busy shopping centre carpark near Sydney on the weekend has left locals baffled.
A Shellharbour Shopping Centre customer snapped a picture of the two vehicles – a white Suzuki Swift hatchback and a blue Hilux ute – parked with their bonnets touching, leaving a small dent in Hilux.
After the picture was posted online, debate erupted over not only who was at fault and the rules around carpark collisions, but why the driver would mysteriously make no effort to move their car.
‘They just left it there, as if you wouldn’t notice,’ one person said.
‘Blue car is over the line so even if the white car is the one that hit, they may get away with not paying,’ they added.

One person theorised it was a some sort of display of carpark dominance.
‘I love the power move of leaving it there,’ they said.
Some people offered some amateur legal opinions, saying that because the blue ute was over the parking line, the white car was within their rights to ding them.
‘Unfortunately it does look like the blue has crossed the line – so technically the blue will be deemed at fault from what I have experienced,’ the person said.
‘Yes blue is at fault either way you look at it, as it is well over the line,’ another person agreed.
The person who posted the picture said the cars were parked next to them at Shellharbour Bay Shopping Centre about an hour south of Sydney.
‘A small white Suzuki Swift and a blue Toyota HiLux Ute with a Disability Parking sticker. One just hit the front bumper of other and decided to park right there.’ they said.
But they could not shed any light on the mystery of who hit who, as they arrived later.
The person who took the photo said they arrived at Shellharbour Shopping Centre (pictured) after both cars had parked so could not say which car hit the other
