Garage Parking Aid

Bogleheads • View forum - Personal Consumer Issues - www.bogleheads.org
My garage is a tandem garage, rather than the side-to-side type of garage. When I bought the unit, there was a shoddily patched area in the front of the garage. Someone clearly drove into the wall. A contractor will patch up and paint the garage (after removing the popcorn plaster from the walls and ceilings) soon.

When there are two cars in the garage, the front car has to be very close to the wall. I can only imagine that one of these days, someone will drive into the wall accidentally. Is there some sort of garage parking aid that Bogleheads might use to prevent drivers from bumping/crashing into the front wall of the garage? I prefer not to hang anything from the ceiling or wall, as the walls and ceiling are concrete (for instance, a string with a tennis ball) and drilling into concrete is a pain.

I've seen ads for a variety of stop sign aids. I have also seen rubber parking blocks, which are much lighter than concrete blocks, but because of their weight, they also move if the car pushes it. Not sure how effective these parking aids are.
