I was driving down a tight road and some muppet decided to come through at break neck speed in a mercedes sprinter van. There was a car (forget the brand) half on the kerb on my side and a car parked on the road on his side. I hit the car on my side and knocked the mirror. The mirror housing of the vehicle I hit bent backwards and the mirror glass fell out. I turned around, picked up the glass and went to the house, outside which the car was parked. I told the chap what had happened and handed him the glass. I asked him to come and take a look at the car. There was no other damage and I begged him to take my details for any cost of repair. The chap said that he would just have the glass put on by his local garage.
Honesty is the best policy but some people just don't care. I would probably behave the same way if the damage was minimal but it angers me when people just drive off.
