I should also ask...
Who do you think I was in this scenario and what do you think I did?

Doubt you were the one who drove off.

I think you were the person who saw your car be hit by a neighbours car and you went out to talk to them and they drove off?

I wouldnt drive off without checking,
1- its illegal 2- if you have left and NOT checked and taken photos and exchanged details they could claim to their insurance for any matter of things they wanted fixed 3- its wrong, no matter how much of a hurry youre in you get out, check the car, exchange details then move on,
If no one was home I'd pop a note in the mail box

C: I'd get out and talk to the neighbour, give her my insurance details etc rather than just apologise quickly and take off.
B: I'd rush out to see what was going on, and I'd be shocked if they'd just driven off! Especially since I saw them and they are my neighbour!
In this scenario I'm guessing that you were the neighbour who saw them and they just drove off?

WWYD? Hitting a car and neighborly relations
This morning I was opening our windows and saw our neighbor across the road running back an forth to his car that he had squeezed in front of mine, I was parked in a spot between two driveways that are never used so in actuality I should have been in the safest spot on our street.
Anyways, he hopped in the car and reversed straight into mine. As he was doing it I actually thought 'he's going to hit my car' and then sure enough I see my car lurch back as it's bumped. I start waving from the window, signaling that he hit our car. He definitely saw me because he made a gesture back. I ran out to check, expecting he'd be out of his car checking as well and at least apologizing. But he was gone!!
It was dark so I couldn't really tell if there was damage, I knew it was probably unlikely that it'd be anything serious but it was a new car, we just got it before Christmas.
I ran to their front door and knocked. His wife answered and I told her what happened. She was obviously in a hurry as well and seemed annoyed at me and him. She asked what number house I was in and asked me to come back tonight when their kids are in bed. I'm pretty over it now, I don't think there's damage but I'll get DH's opinion on a couple scratches, but I'm kind of like WTF? Why is it my responsibility to have to come over both times to address this?

I'd do B, just to show the neighbors I've checked and it's fine 😉
If I was the neighbor Id do A but I'm pretty relaxed with cars. Bumpers are there for a reason 😁
