Have you ever seen anyone drive into a parked vehicle, back into a vehicle or clip someone and leave the scene.

Someone did that to me and a bystander took down their licence and reported them.

I would definitely do the same now if I saw it. That would have cost me my deductable.

It cost the offendar total damages to both mine and their vehicle as well as other claims they may incur in the future.
Kinda like always presumed guilty from now on.

I did a small scratch once on a car that had boxed me in. I found the owner and offered to take care of it. He tried to make pay for a whole paint job on a 15 year old beater. I held out a paper for him to sign agreeing the cash I offered was satisfactory, told him if he didn't sign, I would walk away, and he could stew in his scam. He signed and took what I offered. Sad when somebody tries to screw over a person trying to do the right thing.
Anybody who does damage and doesn't volunteer to try to make it right should be reported by others and held accoumtable.

Absolutely yes.

Over the past few years, my cars have been damaged by idiots who didn't have the integrity to leave a note.

Hello,

A slight bit off Topic but my Son's motorcycle was damaged last week in a parking lot when he wasn't there. Lo & behold, someone left a note on the seat that they would pay for the damages (estimates are about $500), All of the needed information was also provided.

There still are honorable people around :-). MGY

I am not a busy body, but this is a crime. I would try to take a photo, if I was fast enough. Pictures are better than words, though words do matter.
