The Parked car hit and run!

After leaving my Poor Alfa parked on the road/path last night (in the middle of two sets of road works that stuck out further than my car, but never again...) i wake up to find my mirror smashed off (pics to come) my side repeated smashed (already have a spare luckily) and scratches all down the passenger side (will have to check how bad once i clean my car for this week, dam mud) and no honest driver to be found, im sick, from the looks of the mirror and scratches down the door they must have been traveling at some speed, and i can only imangen they where playing chicken/give way wars because of the temp roadworks,Idiots! ARGH *Refrains from swearing, but use your imagination...

Rant over... Anyone else fallen victim to something like this recently?
