    Default Oops written off some ones car!!!

    ******! I've been driving 15 years and never had an accident until Tuesday! I was parked in my wifes car park picking her up. It's pitch black and I started reverse but there was a car in the way with it's lights on waiting to pick someone up. No problem I thought. I'll reverse up by the side of it. It'll be tight but doable. Unfortunately I didnt see the black Mondeo parked under a tree due to the bright light from the car behind. I managed to hit the front wing of the Mondeo and stove it in. I smashed my rear light and scratched up the bumper. I left a note and he called me the following day. He wanted to do cash in hand but as the repairs would be much more than my excess I said no. I was thinking he had no insurance but my wife told me that he's been saying at work the insurance company has written off his car and sending him a cheque for the value of the car. It's a mk3 Mondeo so was probably only worth £500. Taking my car down to body repair today. They'll probably want to just sprey the bumper but I'm going to try and convince them to replace it as there are a few scoffs and small crack in it from the previous owner.

    Gutted about hitting something but at least no one was hurt. I bet I get loads of calls from those damn claims companies now!!!

    If there's one thing that pees me off it's people who sit parked with their flippin headlights on. Sorry to hear of your mishap, I hope it's easily sorted.

    Bad luck mate. Couldv'e happened to anyone.

    Fiat 500 has daytime running lights just below the headlights.

    The amount of people I used to get flashing me or getting arsey because they thought they were front fog lights on.

    Got fed up with it in the end and turned them off from the onboard menu system.

    Just to affirm, some cars you cant turn off the lights.

    I could have driven off but that's not me. I treat people how I'd expect to be treated. If someone smacked my car I'd have wanted a note left. We are in the middle of moving house and this hasn't helped with the stress! Deep breaths!
