I would now, but when I was in a car with a friend driving she reversed into someone else. Barely even a scratch, but I urged her to floor it. Stupid stupid stupid.
I've had someone back into me in a car park (on L plates with a friend supervising). An elderly gentleman reversed and scraped all the way down my car. Friend and I got out to check the damage and as we were both suprised (and assumed that an older man and his wife would be honest and hang around) we didn't realise when he just got back in the car and drove off!
So karma got me back I guess. Even though it wasn't me driving the first time I told my friend to take off. There was next to no damage when my friend did that but I scored a massive scrape down the side of my car not long after so I figured it was karma.
Even though I don't drive at the moment, I'd leave a note now.
And someone mentioned wind catching doors, it's happened to dh. Our car is TINY and the doors are flimsy and stupidly light.
Huge gust of wind, opening door at car park and CRUNCH, right into the newish car next to us.
The guy was just getting out, and tried to yell at dh. Dh got fired up back as it was an honest accident and it wasn't like he wasn't apologetic to the guy.
Anyway, dh gave the guy his details and said that if the tiny scuff didn't cut and polish out (which it would have, it was nothing) to call and we'd fix it.
The guy backed down when dh arked up in return. I think he thought dh would pay a lot if he was on the back foot but dh knew he was in the right lol.
