    I've been involved in two minor incidents where insurance has been paid out and never had police involvement.

    Personally if you're not following with damages I wouldn't leave a note, you both I'm assuming will be living there for sometime. Last thing you want or need is a neighbourhood dispute.

    Default WWYD? Hitting a car and neighborly relations

    Maybe it works differently here (UK) but the police told me that our insurance would just tell us to call them back with a report number. Maybe that's if we try to fix it on our own because the insurance would want to chase their insurance up?

    Eta: also, I don't really care about arguing with them. We're renting and planning on moving back to Melbourne at some point so I doubt we'd be in this place longer than another year or two, especially when we have another baby. They didn't even know we were their neighbors so obviously pay no attention, don't think it'd be that big of a deal. But doubt I'd write anything anyway

    Did you say you are in the UK? If so, I think it's pretty standard over there. I lived in London for 3 months and I have run out of finger and toes with the amount of people I saw 'bump' other people's cars to get out of spots. I stood absolutely dumbfounded the first time I saw it but didn't bat an eyelid by the end of my stay..... Apparently over there, that IS what bumpers are for :-/

    Yeah. I wondered that so I asked a British neighbor when I was shocked by their initial response and she was pretty mortified.

    See, I'm a London girl born and bred. And that's not my experience at all.. Driving standard are pretty high in the UK and think you've just been unlucky with this one. it's certainly not culturally acceptable to bump someone's car and drive off. People do it of course, but most people would go mad if they saw it!

    I'm thinking about it! I tried the 2nd time because I could totally tell he was going to hit the car, he squeezes into the tiniest spots so he probably hits them when he parks as well, but my phone was out of storage! I'll try Monday morning. He seems to get home pretty late so would miss the coming home opportunity. Normal leaves that car all weekend and drives the family van.
