This footage shows a woman who is reportedly set to lose her licence for damaging another driver’s car while repeatedly trying to reverse from a parking space before driving off.
The incident was captured in full on a supermarket CCTV camera trained on its car park in the town of Huangjing, which is in Taicang City in China’s eastern Zhejiang Province.
The video dated 8th September shows female motorist Ms Lv, 24, attempting to reverse her saloon car out of a parking space when she accidentally slips a neighbouring SUV.
The unoccupied vehicle appears to be an obstacle for Ms Lv as she tries to reverse out and leave the supermarket car park.
The video shows the frustrated woman getting out of her car and putting her head in her hands when she realises the damage she has done.
But she returns to the driver’s seat and tries again, crashing into the vehicle belonging to shopper Mr Li.
When she finally reverses almost all the way out, she turns her steering wheel to the left and clips the front of Mr Li’s SUV once last time before leaving.
The incident was reported by the SUV owner when he returned from shopping to find his vehicle badly damaged.
Taicang police said Ms Lv scratched the vehicle four times in total, including one time before the minute-long video showing her repeated blunders.
Ms Lv explained to police that she fled the scene because she was “nervous”.
The authorities said she would be found guilty for hit-and-run, and faces a 12-point demerit on her licence, which results in an automatic driving ban, the length of which is to be decided depending on the severity of the offence.
Ms Lv also faces a fine of between 1,000 and 2,000 RMB (115 and 230 GBP), as well as possibly 15 days in a detention cell, reports said.
