What is wrong with some people

Post by neilmcl » Sat Jun 16, 2018 9:22 pm

Having posted about a (self inflicted) front bumper scrape I got back in February, I got back to my car today to discover this:

Definitely not my fault this time and no note or anything. By the looks of it it seems someone has clipped mine whilst parallel parking or driving off from behind me. No damage other than paintwork but they've also scraped the edge of the quarter panel as well. Looks like it's going to be an expensive month and I've still got the front bumper to sort and pay for.

Gutted for you. I assume there was no CCTV in the area?

Problem is I don't know when or where it happened, although I'm sure it was in the previous 24hrs. I was at a few places during the day and it's also possible that it could've happened whilst parked up at home.

How easy is it to get hold of CCTV? A good contender was when I was parked up at a Sainsburys in an end bay opposite the store with a parking area along the front. It's possible that someone could've reversed out of this and into mine. How would I approach the store to check their cctv?

Somebody hit my wife’s car in a hospital car park (she was still sitting in it). They admitted liability at the time and then tried to deny it later.
There is cctv in that car park but we weren’t allowed to have a copy due to hospital policy. Only if requested by the police apparently would a copy be released.
Marvellous!

I had this the other day, some student backed into me I what was a reckless manoeuvre. Admitting liability at the time then denied it was her car that did the damage to my new car. Sent her a text saying I had dashcam footage (I didn’t). She then back tracked and sent a text back saying

‘I'm not saying I didn't hit you I just want to double check as there are no marks on my car. I only passed my test around 4 weeks ago so my reversing skills aren't the best. Could I still have a photo just for evidence please. ‘

Sent this to my insurance company, who said that should be enough. Frustrating that we take care of our expensive pride and joys and other people just don’t care. Mine is minor paint damage but will need a full bumper respray. I ain’t losing my no claims for someone else’s crap driving.

Hope you get it sorted.

It would be interesting to see how the recently introduced GDPR will affect access to CCTV footage which could lead to the identification of someone.

Just got back from Sainsbury's and they don't have cctv camera coverage for the car park, only the entrance and atm machines.

I have a feeling that the cctv footage in most cases is owned by the operating company who will not release footage or identify persons unless a "crime" has occurred.

From the photo, a lot of that looks like it will polish out; the scrape down to the black plastic will need a smart repair or similar, but I'd suggest a going over with a mildly abrasive polish will make the rest look a lot better.

Hope you manage to get it sorted.

Some spoon took my passengers side mirror off, whilst I was sat in the car and just drove off. Sat there beeping and they didn’t even clock it. Couldn’t get turned to get after them for a reg! Rang West Yorks Police, zero interest even though I could give them a make, model, colour!

My front bumper is a real mess. Someone hit my passenger side and legged it. I hit something in the road which ripped off part of my splitter and took a chunk out of my bumper. A rock hit the front of my car which has chipped between the grills and broke the driver side grill.
