Is there a higher prevalence of other drivers misjudging the distance between their car and the MS?

TMC,
I hope everyone here is doing well. I'm curious...has there been any discussion of a higher prevalence of other drivers misjudging the distance between their car and the Model S due to its sleak, down-sloping body design? Or am I just an unlucky victim of bad drivers in Southern California??

Thankfully, I had [email protected] (TMC handle) install a ClearGuard Nano SR paint protection film...money well spent. The first time I was able to get almost all of the scuffs out with some elbow grease. This time unfortunately the gasket around the sensor seems to have popped out. AP is working fine...so hopefully I can just repair or replace the gasket and pop the sensor back in...then I'll see if the PPF prevented any damage to the paint. Looks like I should install the dash cams after-all.
