i had a lady abuse me last week cause she reversed into the towball on our landcruiser damaging her car in the process.
she told me it was my fault for having such a big car!
all i could do was laugh and tell her she's lucky it only damaged her own car not my 'big car'

We constantly get morons who don't know how to drive reversing into us or taking out the side of their car. We were reversing into a car park when some chick decided to speed around us and took out half her car in the process. She was bawling her eyes out crying and saying we reversed into her when we were already reversing into the car park before she decided to try duck into the car park. My DF just looked at her and laughed and continued to reverse into the car park. The lady ended up having to get a tow truck cause her car was stuffed.
We also had a guy reverse from the car park across the lane into our car. That was hilarious. The guy took out the complete back end of his car. We learned to take our huge land cruiser ute. We just decked it out with a huge steel bumper bar and lifted it so now every time someone hits us it does nothing to our car.

My gran hit the back corner of a car reversing out of a park one day causing more damage to her own car than theirs, but was in such a panic she didn't leave her details. She had had both hips replaced and used a frame and it was Christmas time and she got herself flustered and left. Mistake on her part.
Someone took the rego though and it was passed to the cops, with a description of a young male driver. The address the car was registered to happened to be where my cousin, her grandson was living and the cops were convinced she was covering for him (she 100% wasn't) but as they couldn't prove it they eventually dropped it.
It was very stressful for her though and I think in future I would do what you've done. Maybe they will ring, maybe they won't it just depends on the person. Good luck.

Someone took paint off my car, left a note with their details, but my actions depend on my financial situation. It was $50 to fix it up properly which at the time was ok, so I rang and thanked her for her honesty, told her it was quick and cheap to fix so not to worry about it. If it happened now I would go through insurance or for something little ask them to fix it. I don't have the money right now. So entirely depends.

I would leave a note with my info.
If somebody hit my car and I would call ask if they want to pay cash to fix it. If I had no luck trying to get them to pay i would call my insurance and let them take care of it.
I had a women hit my car. She knew she was in the wrong, told me she would pay to get it fixed when it come to paying up, she wouldn't. I said fine have fun dealing with my insurance company. Her reply was i'm not at fault i'm not paying. I called my insurance company they took care of everything, no excess because she was in the wrong .

Well, I already replied to this thread, but yesterday someone hit the side of our car !!! Ahhhh. No note of course.
I can't open the back door (the side which ds' seat is!) without opening the front door first, as the front door has been damaged
I'm going to try and bash it back into shape myself because we can't afford to get it fixed.
Thanks alot a hole for making it even more difficult to get my baby in & out of the car :-(
