High risk of a car park ding BURWOOD ranks in the top 20 hot spots for parking- related collisions, according to NRMA motor insurance claims for 2007/08. The insurer dealt with more than 27,000 parking claims in the past year, costing more than $43 million in repairs. NRMA Insurance said more than 16 per cent of collision claims in NSW were the result of parking, which is more than 500 claims every week. Burwood has recorded 228 claims, ranking it at 18th in the top 20 suburbs. NRMA Insurance spokes- man John Hallal said most car park collisions occurred in busy shopping precincts. ''People are often sur- prised to learn that those pesky dents, dings and bumps in car parks cost on average around $1600 in re- pair costs,'' he said. ''Typical parking collisions include hitting other vehicles, trolleys, rail- ings, walls and poles, posts or pylons and many are caused when reversing.'' Research conducted by Woolcott Research in August 2008 has also re- vealed that 80 per cent of motorists surveyed believe they would do the right thing in a parking prang and leave a note but NRMA Insurance claims data shows 50 per cent of drivers have returned to their car to find it damaged with no note to identify the culprit. weekly news Mangoes each $1.99 per unit 10" screen size 60day satisfaction return warranty† see www.aldi.com.au for full specifications THE 10" NETBOOK E1210 FOR CONNECTIVITY ON THE GO • Compact • Light • Stylish • Versatile Available in black or white †See www.aldi.com.au for details integrated webcam 1.6 GHz Intel® AtomTM processor N270 160GB SATA hard drive 1GB RAM Fast wireless connection Weight 1.2kg incl. battery $599 Watermelon per kg 69c per kg Tomatoes per kg $1.99 per kg Baby Spinach 120g 83c per 100g $199ea smarter shopping aldi.com.au produce prices effective 21/10/08 to 27/10/08 OPENING HOURS: See your local store or www.aldi.com.au for details.
