    Had a car prang (my fault) - other drive kicked my car!

    LONG STORY ALERT:

    I reveresed at slow speed into the corner bumper of a parked land rover on a petrol station forecourt. The driver was stood next to my car and instantly reacted by kicking my drivers door with full force which as creased the panel! I thought this guy was gonna kill me - he looked like a cage fighter!

    My reaction was to say sorry to calm him down and I wanted to see the damage to his car. Now Ive smashed my rear light but only niked about 1cm of the rubber on his bumper. After all his vehicle is built like a tank.

    Luckily his partner was there to calm him down but he was feral with anger. He shouted at her to get my details which I gave and they gave me there name, phone number and address only - not insurance company name? He then proceeded to say that he was going to the land rover garage to find out if there was any chassis damage, if there wasnt then he'd get his mate to touch up the bumper and charge me for cash. Then they got in there car to speed off and I quickly took some pictures for evidence.

    I noticed that while I was writting my details a member of the petrol station came out to chat with the other driver. When I went inside to ask to speak to this man he was nowhere to be found - I asked to speak to a manager: "no, no come back tommorrow" - I asked about the cameras (which this petrol station had many of) "no no cameras not working". Funny that! The police wont be interested either as I have no witness and the petrol station are gonna play dumb.

    I dont know what to do now - I dont want to claim with my insurance as Ive done such little damage to his vehicle and I have 5 years no claims which Id like to keep. He doesnt seem to want to go thorugh insurance by the sound of things?

    Im already gonna be £100 down on replacing my light but whats worse is the damage he has done with his foot! To get the crease out is gonna take alot of panel beating and then a respray which will easily sting me for over £500. Timberland boots do alot of damage! On top of that Im gonna get a phone call from this matey for a wad of cash for his "repair"! Having thought about it I dont feel I should pay anything as my car is now much more damaged than his! I hold my hand up to say the accident was my fault but he did not need to react this way at all.

    Advice/opinions please.

    Copy and paste it to the Police. Preemptive strike.

    Maybe you should have contacted the police when he damaged your car, criminal damage I would have thought.

    Classic intimidation tactics.

    Thats just awful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yip as the guys above have said - criminal damage, intimidation and sounds like he is buddies with manager of the petrol station and cctv has "disappeared" . The cctv will be there somehow and I would DEFINITELY get the police involved NOW. The more time that passes the worst state your going to be in .

    def ring the police - or go to your nearest station and report in person.. give him all the guys details and they can "politely" request the camera footage..

    Sorry but I too can't believe you didn't call the police straight away. At the very least, if he was so angry you were scared it could have calmed him and stopped him doing anything else.

    And I'd also tell your insurance company and let them deal with it. He'll only rip you off somemore. I'd rather pay the hike in isurance than have him laugh at me.

    (the hike in price probably won't be much more than the cost of replacing your light and giving bully-boy his bonus.

    go to the police with out DELAY

    Report it to the police asap - if there's no cctv I shouldn't worry too much, this surely means no evidence either way - but saying that - if you've exchanged addresses I wouldnt fancy him and his mechanic mate (as if, he's just going to milk you for a couple of hundred) calling round in the middle of the night. But if you can't prove he kicked your car, surely he cant prove u nudged his???

    What a psycho thug though, brimmed with roid rage by sounds of it and definitely knows the forecourt owners!!

    Did he give you an address?? There's a lot of haters out there.... if he stings you sting him back by publishing exactly what he's done on local websites!! Scumbag.

    Alternatively, stick timberland in the hukd search box, (some cheap deals atm), buy 2 pairs, grab a pal and then dent the side of his head, ought to cause some chassis damage.

    bloody hell what a horrid man!

    ok he's gotta lame ass car...bleurgh...cant afford a range rover obviously.... explains why he was such a complete idiot.

    i think he just intimaded u....if it doesnt happen to u often its kinda shocking.... and u dont react.... trust me if this happened again to u u wouldnt take it. i dont blame u though for getting freaked out...learn for next time someone tries to intimidate u. definitely report his actions to the police and dont let this guy get one over u.

    choice is yours if you want to go knock for knock so you pay for the damage to his car ..

    as for the damage to your that he did from the kicking he gave it..
    my advice is pop off down the police station and make a formal complaint of criminal damage.. guy sound like a real idiot ..

    Guy sounds like raoul moat back from the dead.your f***ed. What happened to the swear filter ?

    wtf man, u hit someones car by accident and you allow someone to kick your door in??!! next time just lock your doors call the police and take down the persons numberplate if they are being aggressive to you...call the poloce and report the criminal damage, they will go to the petrol station and will demand the tapes im sure aswell....guy sounds like a right idiot....im sure everyone would be annoyed if they watched someone reverse into their parked car but thats no excuse to kick their car in!

    As they've all suggested, Report to police, Criminal damage.

    I hope the lack of replies from OP means they are at the police station....

    That might get you the Police, in America.

    I'm finding hard to believe you let some random kick your car without resorting to violence, you really need to grow a pair imo.

    no you have to put 001 in front of it...not that I've tried

    you are responsible for careless driving and he is responsible for criminal damage. You should be reported for your poor driving and he should be arrested for the damage. The police wont deal with half of the incident

    He acted in a mature manner and didnt resort to violence. Because then he'd be a thug like the other idiot.
    Go to the police. At least it'll cover you from being bullied out of hundreds, cos i'm pretty sure that's whats gonna happen.

    Totally agree with you. I have a vile temper at times and would probably have whacked this person one - but not the right thing to do. I really hope the OP is down at the police station reporting this

    He is going to get bullied as you say and that wouldnt have been the case had he stood up for himself, theres no way the police will waste their time on this story!

    The hard men of HUKD out in force today.

    In this kind of situation I advise the following :

    Lock your doors

    Put your window down an inch (Enough that he cant get his steroid riddin hands through the gap)

    Shout out that his girlfriend is a lady of the night

    Phone an ambulance

    Get out of your car

    Curl up in a ball

    Let him beat you until near death

    Enjoy your holiday when your money comes


    Many thanks

    Even if the police got involved, the guy will just get a friend to go and pull the op's teeth out 1 by 1.......the op must be reminded its a jungle out there.
