Parking on the streets of Brooklyn can be hazardous to your car bumpers. Growing up in Brooklyn has taught me to be a defensive parker. I am always cautious not to park to close to the guy in front or back, making sure there is plenty of space to easily enter and exit a parking space. Unfortunately, I realize that I can’t protect my car 24 hours a day, hence car bumper protection to the rescue. Although I have never been a big fan of bumper protectors I do see the value of having one in the trunk just in case I need it. After a few close call situations with my car I realize that bumper protection is a necessary option when you park on the streets.
