How so?

It looks pretty interesting... I have several scratches from when the wife carelessly loaded some stuff into the truck so I would buy 1 if the price is reasonable.

I sort of agree. Asking for some jerk to walk by...

I think I agree, but sometimes you park in very respect. places with zero to non parking space + hospital garage always overloaded.

I get it now haha... I missed "parking mat" I just saw the mat and thought it was to protect the bumper from scratches from loading heavy stuff, etc. I'm half asleep today...

Yes, I agree, it may be an invite depending on the area you park.

Adjacent parkers would probably just figure they could go ahead and not worry about hitting my car - it would make parking easier for them while my car would get pushed around.

Some 6" pointy steel spikes would probably do a better job of keeping people from bumping my car. Kinda like that idea...

Saw a great alternative on the Southeast Expressway a couple years back - some guy was driving along with a stuffed arm sticking our of his trunk - shirtsleeve, Timex, the whole bit. would probably work just as well as the parking mat, and invite less vandalism.
