Drivers here bounce cars and trucks off of lots of things –walls, buildings, concrete blocks, parked cars, and sometimes even low roofs of buildings. It happens all the time, and I witness it regularly.
So if you are in doubt about a distance between your car and something, maybe just give it a try. Probably the worst that’ll happen is that you’ll bounce — and really, who doesn’t like doing that?
