I would say the person opening the door because that person should always take caution when opening a car door to make sure nothing is in the way (post, car, etc.) This just happened to me last night. I was a front seat passenger in my vehicle, my girlfriend was driving. We had an additional passenger in the back seat on the driver's side. I was the last one to exit the vehicle, and my door was already opened when another vehicle hit the door while trying to park. She broke the mirror on her car, and my vehicle sustained MINOR damage. She tried to get me to pay for the mirror, but the police, my insurance, and my attorney have all advised me that in Illinois, the vehicle in motion is responsible.

How much does a parking ticket cost?

Cities and towns can set their own ticket prices. In addition, there are different fines for different violations. Parking in a Handicap Zone or beside a fire hydrant usually runs a lot higher than parking too long at a meter. It is not uncommon to find parking fines between $50 and $100 for parking in zones where there is no parking. In addition, your car can be towed away, which may cost another $200 to recover.

You backed into a car in an empty parking lot The person with the car chose not to park in one of the empty parking spaces but parked along side the ATM Does this help the person who backedinto thecar?

I doubt it. It was an empty parking lot. There was no obligation on the person parking to use one of the available spaces, unless there was a prohibition notice displayed which forbid parking beside the ATM. Even then, such a prohibition would be unenforceable if the parking lot is private land. For the driver of the parked car to have any 'blame', there would need to be a sign warning them that cars parked in this area were especially liable to damage. As the driver of the moving vehicle, you carry the blame for the collision.
