If you need a fuller theoretical explanation, I have the name and address of an excellent driving instructor! (Thanks, Dennis.) You will also notice a crucial adverb.

I admit that was an anti-ram-raid bollard rather than a parked car, and I confess I never told her about this bump. I think I'm going to regard this as my equivalent of a duelling scar, and sport it with pride.
