AVOID parallel parking where any car may have to reverse in the direction towards your car.
I'm aware of that. Since those incidents I had previously with my car, I film it all the time while it is parked outside my dormitory. I have a video of one guy which parks next and hits my car with his door and left a scratch on it ( quite common in Poland, the people don't respect other's people property).
Another one, one guy is trying to leave the parking place, while doing this, he hits my car with his. He hit one tire of my car, absolutly nothing happend to my car . But since I have the video, I went immediately to the police with the evidence. They contacted the guy and he asked me that he would prefer to pay me personally than to have the insurance involved. My car was checked and it didn't have anything, so I told to this guy that there is no problem, that he doesn't have to pay anything to anyone.
In another occasion, I have a video of 2 guys, which go straight to my car, and put a chewing gum on it and then run away. Unfortunately I couldn't identify those bastards.
But yeah, unfortunately there is this post-communist mentality in Poland of '' I'm f*cked up, so the other one must also be f*cked up ''
I see a lot of frustration among the polish youth and when they drive they try to take it out.
my car has been finally egged some moments ago :) , I thought it was rare that I saw some cars egged lastly and mine not. I found out who the guys were. I didn't even know them before and I have never ever have a problem with any of them. They were just having some fun egging my car.
The police was here and took their data. The guys came to me , telling me they are sorry bla bla bla and they even washed the car. All expecting, that I don't go to the police and do the complaint tomorrow.
But this is too late. My car has been vandalized so many times and finally there is a responsible
- Mercedes logo taken away
- Fully scratched on both sides, from the frontal to the back part
- Someone has jumped on the roof
after the 3 cases before I decided to put a camara.... the vandalism continues as follows
- While parked, someone trying to go out, crashed my car on one tire (this was accidently - my car was not damaged so I said to this guy he doesn't have to pay anything)
- 2 guys put a chewing gum and ran away
- and finally, the car got egged
welcome to Poland !!!
I just wonder where the stereotypes of poles damaging and stealing cars (very common in germany) come from. Yeah, those evil germans, they always have stereotypes against the innocent poles.
