This is what happened when someone opened the drivers door without looking.I'm gutted to say the least,needs new wing and bumper and what ever else may be found when it goes for repair.

We were about a mile from home and live near the ambulance station, the second man on the ambulance drove the car home for me.That was the only bit of luck today,Just waiting for a call from Honda assistance.

Always be alert when passing a line of cars near shops, I also get annoyed when people just stop right in front of you, no indicator, because they want to reverse and park up, so don't get too close to them in front either, good luck getting your Civic back to 100%

Hope your ok.

My Dad used to be a bus driver years ago, and loads of times people parked would open the door as my Dad was about to go past causing him to slam on the brakes, idiots. One day my dad was having a bad day and it had happened about 4 times in one day on the 5th time he decided to take someones door clean off and not bother with the brakes. Bet that was satisfying. Does my head in when people open doors without looking!

Hope your car is fixed soon

Sorry to hear about that, hope your wife gets better and that the man pays a nice compensation, did you rip off the other cars door?
I can't get out off my car without checking the mirror, and if I've got passengers ill park my car if my side to the road so they don't swing there doors open.

Hello Nelson!! The wifes still not well,the other driver hit my car with his door I did'nt hit his door.He his claiming his door was already open and I hit it,the impact was on the edge of his door and not on the inside as he claims.I've sent pics to my insurance so they will decide I suppose.Should get my car back on Tuesday I hope,The cost to repair is just short of £2000.:(

And that makes a difference because ??? :worms:
So how long did he leave the door 'open' for exactly...most people open the door when they are about to get out... rather than leave it open for the hell of it.
:confused: :popcorn:

you MUST ensure you do not hit anyone when you open your door – check for cyclists or other traffic
