So I was getting out of my car with my mate to go and get our half price Pizza Hut order (thanks HUKD), when I saw some dopey old woman try and park in this space, whilst at the same time hitting the front of another car. She simply reversed back and found another spot to park in. When she'd got out of the car she assessed her car for damage, then walked off to the cinema.

I looked at the damage to both cars and the car she hit came off worse, missing some paint, having a bit of a crease and a dent. I also took both registration numbers.

Now on my old car I had numerous people bashing it with doors, and reversing into it leaving nice dents all over for me. I hate it when people mess with my car in a car park.

Should I report the lady? If so, who to? I was so amazed she just reversed out and parked somewhere else knowing two of us were watching - and then to check the damage on her car! What a joker.

It was about 5 hours ago - it was raining and I had no pen/paper.

Where it happened is like a leisure park, with a few fast food places and a cinema so it wouldn't have been any use telling the staff in Pizza Hut, as the car was closer to the cinema.

I'll get the number for my local police station tomorrow and give them the details I think :).

Report her to the police, people like this really hack me off, just because their car is a heap of crap does not mean mine is:x


Hah. This was the case, she was in a fairly old/beaten up Ka, and the car she hit was a fairly new Peugot.

Sledgehammer the bitches car !! :x:x:x

Sorry for the rant ...but some t**t hit my brand new Yaris in Tesco car park and drove off. Tesco said they could not help because CCTV camera was not working properly.
#11
if that happened to me I would be well ****** off and would deffo want to know who did it, so yeh I would tell the police and if u catch the person going into thier car let them know just out of curiousity what car was it if its a banger I doubt they would be bovered.
#13
Of course report her! I bet you'd like to hope someone does the same for you, I would :p
#14
Just reported it to my local station. They took all the details and said they'd get back to me.

Didn't sound overly interested as this probably happens dozens of times a day, but oh well!
#15
If it were me, I'd leave a note on the damaged car windscreen explaining that I saw the incident and give my telephone number, and I'd also call the police and give them all the details.

I had some complete idiot damage my Impreza in a car park, made a fair dent near the petrol flap and some massive scratches where they'd obviously reversed and scraped down the side of my car. Wish someone had seen the tool that did it and left details for me to sort it out !! :thumbsup:

Good on you people shouldnt get away with that:thumbsup:

This happened to my wifes car a couple of months ago, left her with damage to her car amounting to £1600.
After a bit of detective work myself I managed to track down the guy who damaged it, reported to police and the guy admitted it, guess what? police let him off with a warning and he still hasn't reported to his own insurance yet. Wifes insurance is now suing his insurance and still the police fail to intervene washing their hands saying it's down to the insurance companies now.
#18
Last time I saw this happen (old bat hit the car next to me, I was shocked - She should not have been reversing into the car, there was plenty of room).

I took the reg, car make and colour and a brief description of the accident and left it on their windscreen. What happened after, who knows, but I did my bit and would hope someone would do the same for me!

I just think women shouldnt drive at all, simple as that!

I worked in a car park for a few years and have seen some sights... one trick is for offending car driver to leave a note on the windscreen of the empty car, but it's full of fake details. I always took down the car reg & details of anything I saw going on, and usually advised the car that did the damage to take a photo if they could because sometimes claims are made for things that hadn't just happened. Some people are scum. Saw a car drive off after reversing in to the side of a parked car after an evening fete in Hythe once - hung around and gave the driver the details when he came back. He was really grateful, he contacted the police and gave us as witnesses and the insurance was settled ok, he came round our house with some wine as a thank you :)

Snitches, the lot of you! :whistling:

Having just had my car badly hit in a carpark on Christmas Eve, I wouldn't hesitate on telling you to do the 'right' thing by reporting this to the police, even if it's not the 'cool' thing to do. I know how bad a mood I was in when my car got hit :(
#23
someone vandalised my old car years back - breaking the mechanism in the side mirrors., luckily i caught them. their argument was that i parked illegally (which i hadn't). i called the police and the old woman got dragged off to jail, convicted and spent two years paying back the £500 damage she did! the repairs of my side mirrors cost more than my car! lol
#24
You should report it to the police, however if the person who's car was hit doesn't report it they'll prob do nowt. Unless you left a note whihc by your other posts doesn't seem likley. But you've done your bit, up to the owner of the car now...

Hopefully you left your details too as without a witness, I doubt the police would be interested as it would be impossible to prove. probably wouldnt be interested either way as they're too busy trying to generate revenue from other motorists.

you must leave your contact details so you can sign a witness statement if needed.

So failing to stop at the scene of an accident is now a cautionable offence? :w00t:

The police in this country plumb new lows each day! And they wonder why the general public hold them in such contempt!

I would have taken the above further I can assure you.

As far as i'm aware he was warned and not even cautioned, didn't even take him to the station for questioning, admitted to it when he received a notice of intention to prosecute.
As for taking it further the only way is by taking a civil prosecution which is not woth the hassel and expence, scum the lot of them.:x

never heard of a "notice of intention to prosecute". So just say it wasnt you, if they decide they have a case and decide to prosecute, then just admit to it, and they say ok, bye. :?

actually spoke with a couple of lowlifes down the pub the other week and they said they never work, just shoplift and get caught at least weekly. They said they only ever get an £80 fine each time but they make a profit on that as their solicitor gives them £100 as long as they call him when arrested due to the massive fees he can get for legal aid!

someone hit my car the other day outside my house and didnt stop, bit annoyed as its only just got back from the bodyshop :(

Personally i would have stuck a note on the windscreen of the damaged car with her registration number & what you saw happened. Very unlikely the police would take any action & even if they did even more unlikely she would have any action taken against her unless it was caught on camera.

Yer I guessed so, blimming scratch drivers, just because they drive a skip on wheels, don't get me started:x:p


Reminds me a few years back when I was driving a Ford Escort, in some suburb of london, when a dozy git ran into the back of me (no homo). It was in the middle of a crazy busy street so I clearly pointed to the left exit, he nodded and I turned in, only for him to drive off.

So i got out and looked, and as expected just a small scrape really, and as I was only about 18/19 at the time I wasn't gonna claim anyway. So I drove off up the side road, looking for a road back to the main road. Stopped at some lights, and some bloke ran up to me, and having ran a fair way to catch up the car, handed me a piece of paper with the reg number, and his phone number as a witness as he had seen what happened!

Obviously i didn't claim so it didn't matter but it did surprise me how kind hearted some people can be.

so is failure to stop after an accident an offence that the police dont want to get involved with these days.

Seems it is. SHocking really! :w00t:

Id have left a note on the damaged car windscreen with the details of the other car. I might have left my number too, as a witness in the event of a claim. Depends on how generous I was feeling at the time.
banned#38
please people, leave your contact details and do your good samaritan bit. A regno alone isnt gonna help anyone realisitically.
banned#39
Yes, as others have said, always leave your contact details.

I work in motor claims and there are SO many accidents like this. Sometimes people leave a note with the registration of the person who hit their car but nothing else. If you witness an accident, leave a name and number so the insurance company can use you as an independent witness.

Without a witness, it's easy for the person at fault to turn round and say "I didn't do it."
