    Default Hit and run!!! AGAIN!!!!!!

    I can't believe it!!!

    On Sunday my wife's car was driven into and the other driver left no details and just took off.

    Low and behold at work today, guys knocks on office door to tell me someone just reversed into my car, shunted it back about 2 foot and took off again!!!!

    Had a look at the car and the front bumper is heavily scuffed and also out of line with the passenger wing. Surprisingly though the bumper bar looks to be ok!

    The guy who made me aware of it took down the details though so I visited the Police tonight to fill out forms so a "Notice of Intended Prosecution" can be issued.

    Best part about it is, the female driver is uninsured so if I go through insurance its going to be my loss.....typical!

    I'm going to leave it to the Police and see what comes of it, hopefully I may get damages so I can have the bumper sorted

    it seems to be happening a lot more often these days too, I don't know if it's just people rushing round and not concentrating or just simply not being bothered about anything at all....

    It will be interesting to see what happens, especially as she was allegedly uninsured

    sorry to hear that fella, but if it transpires that she isnt actually insured, you can claim off the MIB

    Yeah it happened to my friend, she got hit by an uninsured driver and they drove off. It wrote her car off,she is having to claim from MIB and nearly 4 years later only recieved about £2000. The car was on HP and her insurance only covered 50% of the loss and she lost her NCB.

    Good luck mate and I hope you get a better outcome......Uninsured drivers=Scum

    And this is why, tonight when I nipped into Asda, I took up 4 parking bays well away from anyone else.
    Dont forget if you get her details you can go down the small claims route mate. I just dont know why people run around without insurance these days, its so easy to get pinged by ANPR and they will loose the car, wheres the mentallity in that? Mind you too many people think that breaking the law in a car is Ok and the Police are just jobsworths for upholding the law when it comes to them getting stopped by the cops. Here hoping you get it sorted buddy.

    Even with mib you will still have a 300 or 350 excess I think.

    Good luck sorting it out, if she really is uninsured hopefully she'll at least lose her car.
