Re: would you leave details if you accidently dinged another car?
A couple of things to ponder:
If you hit a car and leave without leaving details or reporting it you are committing an offence.
You may have been spotted by a witness or CCTV.
It could one day happen to you and your bella.....
Reason I know this is Sue's 147 suffered a skelp in a car park at Christmas. The culprit (woman in Mercedes apparently) got out out looked at damage , had a quick look round then got back in her car and left. Unlucky for her she was spotted by a witness who took down reg. details and went into the shop to report the incident. As it happens the shop asst. knew the car was Sue's and went to inform her. Police were called and they immediately identified the car and owner (local land owner's wife - toff type) and approached her to give her the oppurtunity to come clean make good the damage. She point blank refused to admit she was even there. The police then gave her time to re-consider, warning her there was an independent witness - she still refused to admit.
Upshot is she has been charged, her insurance company has admitted liability and what should have been an easily resolved incident has caused her severe embarrassment (It will make the local papers) and no doubt increases in her premiums.
Moral being.....By all means be a ba*tard, but be prepared for the consequences it isn't always just financial.......
