Avoidable Contact

The number of damaged cars in the paddock at Spa and the photos posted on this forum prompted me to look up this definition from Wiki.
In the sport of automobile racing, most series have strict penalties for "avoidable contact". In such an incident, two or more vehicles collide in a way so as to make notable damage. The race officials then review the incident, and provide a verdict on whether the contact was avoidable. If the judgement is that it was avoidable, the instigator of the collision will be penalized. Usually, this consists of driving all the way through pit lane into his pit box and then being forced to idle for up to a minute, depending on the severity of the damage
Perpaps it would be an idea to implement and enforce this policy universally?
