I am 18. I was parallel parking on a small street without a lane divider. I pulled in front of a parked car and side-swiped the front left bumper in parallel parking-small paint damage. An officer working traffic witnessed the scene and told me to write a note with contact info/insurance. The officer said he'd make sure its ok then but he left however told me he called another officer to write a report also saying that i wouldnt get any citations for it. the other cop came, asked me what happened, I told him what happened but didnt mention that i was parking, he took a quick glance at the damage, then wrote the citation, other car owner came out i said sorry, she said its fine very little damage, she just wanted my contact info but officer said that it wasnt necessary what went wrong here?
