I was parked in a shopping centre yesterday at 12pm. Was just running in and out for a few things.
When I came out and sat into the car, a lady knocked on my window (I was trying to think WTF did I do now?!)
Oh thats such a relief...fair play to the lady who got the reg.
I can't beleive people who do that just drive off and don't leave thier details.
Glad you were one of the luck ones!!!!
How lucky were you that the couple were there and seen it all and took the Reg No and waited for you to come back to your car - Wow, there are still some nice and recent people in the world....
Its a pity you didn't get their name or contact numbers, but its hard to think of everything when somethings after happenening - your head can be in the clouds with all the shock!
Thank god they were on the ball enough to get the reg. Phew. It's still a bit of a pain for you but at least you shouldn't be out of pocket now.
Yay for good samaritans
I'm gutted that I didn't get their names
You could always take out a notice under the 'miscellaneous' section in the herald, I've seen lots of ads like that. Something like
'Looking for a couple who kindly witnessed damage to vehicle in X location on X day. Person whose vehicle it was would love for you to get in touch. Contact Box no xxxx'
or something like that
That's brilliant. It's great when people look out for others
God no way was I getting involved, what would stop her blaming me for the damage if someone came along! Plus I really got the impression that she was trying to get her car away so she could just leave the situation. I told her that her only option was to go to the shopping centre information or help desk and get them to put out a page for the owner of the other car. I don't know what happened in the end there as I had paid for my parking so had to go or my ticket would run out, I knew there was no way she was moving the car on her own as she didn't have a clue what to do so I imagine the person came back while she was still there. But I couldn't believe the way she seemed to be trying to get away from such a lot of damage she had caused.
If I hit someone in car park I would have to either stop and leave my details or wait for them to come back, I'd never live with the guilt otherwise.
Wow! That was very good of them!
You are also lucky that the girl did admit it too I think. I was under the impression that if you didn't see something like that yourself it was considered you had no proof. You are very, very lucky here full stop!
A couple of years ago I was in a shopping centre and watched a woman just scrunch her car into the side of someone elses because she turned the wheel too sharply as she was reversing. There was horrible damage to her car and the other car. She got out and was looking at it, I had stopped to watch and she started to ask me how she would get her car free, she pretty much asked would I move it for her!!
Flexy same thing happened to my sister last year, her new car was awful damaged when she came out of a shopping centre buy TG the security man had gotten the details of a woman who'd driven into her car. So my sis went straight to the Garda station and they rang the owners of the car, the wife (The driver of the car) answered and the guards asked for Mr. X who was the registered owner of the car that'd been in an accident, Mrs. X said "Oh he's down the field working" and never admitted it was her who'd been driving. The guards hung up the phone & my sis told them it was a lady driver so they rang back and asked her again! Eventually she admitted doing a 'small bit of damage' and the husband said he'd call to my sisters house that night to see the damage. He was mortified at the damage as the wife had told him it was tiny but at least they paid for it all. Stupid woman
Lucky you Flexi, fair play to that couple.
