Just a further note.
A lot of people think it's a "silly safety regulation" since
rubber bumpers don't really help safety.
However, it was actually more designed for insurance companies
I guess the insurance companies were getting tired of paying
out $700 for every parking lot 2mph oversight. Isn't the exact
wording something like "Car must absorb 5mph impact with only
superficial damage" or similar?
