Yeah, I'm sure that most of us have nudged something in our driveways, garages, curbs etc.... No one is perfect, but as you've stated about worrying in case children or pets are near. You drive a modified vehicle and there should be extra steps taken to ensure you are being a safe driver.

Just go get some convoy training, spend a year in Iraq watching every dark spot or window on the side of the road for bombs, RPG's, snipers, cute kids with hand granades to toss out into the road. I don't think I miss (no pun intended) anything anymore. Hell, even in rush hour traffic I find myself searching for good escape routes.
I'm still not sure how you backed out of the same place you pulled into and hit something, unless you turned your wheel too soon coming out. For 89 bucks (SC Wal-mart) I've been wanting one of those camera's, seems like a good buy with all the blind spots a soft top can cause.

Same here... No offense intended.

Be aware of your surroundings BEFORE and when you get behind the wheel. Turn the cell phone off and lower the radio. There are way too many distractions these days for younger drivers.

Think of it this way, what if had been a kid or your maybe your girlfriend? There would be nothing you could say or do to change anything. You would have to live with it the rest of your life.

You got a real cheap lesson and a rude wake up call. Most life lessons are not that cheap.

Learn from it and move on.

Wow!

You say you don't use your mirrors because you don't want to adjust them. So why don't you not be so lazy take 1 or 2 minuts and adjust them? It's for your own good if you use them. There there for a reason.
