    Hi, this morning I was at the shopping centre and was about to reverse out of the car park I was in. I check around and don't see anyone so I started to reverse. As I did, I heard a horn but when I looked again I couldn't see anyone, (I was running late for work so I wasn't as focused as I should have been), then I hit this lady's rear right hand door. Not major damage but the door will probably be replaced.

    I've been told by a few people that, 'because it's in a car park at the shops you don't have to pay.' One of the people who told me that said his girlfriend used that excuse and didn't have to pay. I checked with my car insurance and they don't think that's right so I wanted another opinion.

    Thank you
