Was driving today, and was probably a little too fast , maybe 3 mph over the 30 speed limite, anyway i saw a car reversing into a parking space at the side of the road, but saw I had enough room.. However he turned abit more but i still had no room..
I know I was probably too close but as i went past he must have turned some more, as we hit each other. I pulled up quite abit futher along the road ( so many cars parked) checked the damage ( a scratch down the side of the car, which i can probably wax or whatever is used to get rid of scratches, off), I then decided to turn round and go see if his car was okay, however the car wasnt there when I got back!
A couple of points though, aside me being too close:
1) He musnt have looked, otherwise he wouldnt have turned
2) The scratch was at the side of my car, and not on the front, therefore surely he must have turned and hit me when I was going past him, otherwise if he had been at that angle when I had gone past, it would have hit the front of my car right?
I think it was his front right hand side that bumped, it didnt move the car or anything just a bump, and the scratch..
However because he wasnt there when I got back, what should I do, just leave it?
I'm not bothered about my scratch, just worried he's going to try claim on me?
Could he do that and would he have a claim?
In my defense it hit the side of the car, and I did go back and he wasnt there?
Thanks for the help in advance
P.s please no tellings off :p
