    Default Just been side swiped - not impressed

    Sitting in lane 3 at traffic lights looking to take the 3rd exit on a roundabout, gold jag x type in lane 2 but sitting a touch back from the lights, they turn green and we all pull away and just as i start to turn around the roundabout the jag decides he wants the 1st exit from lane 2, boots his car and side swipes my front wing and just drives off with no looking to stop.

    Ofc i could not get from lane 3 to take exit 1 without causing more problems for other drivers or maybe even another accident, but also could not get a number plate.

    Really not a happy bunny now, two weeks of ownership and its all looking grim.

    Why do ppl have no respect for others - agreed its not a very exspencive car but its still not the point.

    Would not dream of just driving off on anyone if i hit there car.

    There are that many ANPR cameras about now it would not be hard for them to narrow down a gold X-type in that area at that time .... get it reported asap.

    with the technology around in 2011 it is shameful that an automatic collision detection system has not yet been put in place.
    we pay all this money for road tax and fuel duty and for what... so some uninsured drivers can ram whoever they please and just carry on driving.
    time to make these prats pay for their crap driving - and time to protect proper drivers!

    A lot of traffic lights and junctions have CCTV, if they try hard enough they may well find him, enough to get a number plate. Hope you get driver.

    This is very true and the junction in question has quite a few on it so its a waiting game i guess.

    But really i think we know the kind of ppl who dont stop normaly have a reason for not stopping.

    Looking at the damage i think im going to need a new front wing and a re-spray - guess it could have been worse.
