    Angry Well knew it would happen.

    Ive looked and looked and looked at these dash cams for months and never got around to ordering one, well the inevitable happened, I got hit. Now sorry to be melodramatic as I know most, if not all have had far far worse experiences than this and the pictures are almost embarrassing, but not as embarrassing as I never actually checked my car before the woman drove off..................

    Ok so going to work, 2 lanes all the way in from Sighthill to Gorgie, inside lane is a bus lane and has restrictions on a Saturday so im driving in the outside lane, doing about 5mph in queuing traffic. Next thing this woman in a Silver Volvo XC90 undercuts me in the inside bus lane and dives over the front of me. Ive my hand on the horn and the cheeky cow has the nerve to put her hand on the horn and is laughing!!!!!! So i jump out steam flying out my ears and grab her door handle, but the doors ar locked and shes not rolling the window down and still shes laughing so I let fly with the best french I can muster and get back in my car. Get to work and as I get out the car notice the the front wing is dented and there are black tyre marks over the side of the front bumper!!!!!! f***KIN hell!!!! Never even took her number down and neither did my passenger as he didnt think shed hit me either, im guessing as i braked is when she hit me and the reason we never felt it.
    Well anyway reported it to the Police as a hit and run and gave as many details as I could and they will get back to me with an accident report. Anyway tyre marks have come off (prays to the god of Auto Glym HD Wax) and the dent is very soft and paint is still intact so should push out ok. So anyway, off to ebay now to order a DVR Dash Cam. Lesson learned, but I guess I got off lucky.

    Bearing in mind her response I would have accidentally keyed hers or something similar on the way back to mine.

    Yes mate I think it will too. My Brother in law does Cold Dent repair for a living but I think ill whip the bumper off and the headlight out tomorrow and see it it will go myself.

    I booted her back tyre, was going to do the back door, but baring in mind I was half in uniform it was just the tyre that got it, that and my keys were still in the ignition of my car. Im a better person than that too anyway

    Grow long thumbnails. As for being a better person, I agree but sometimes its more satisfying not being so.

    Yea I do have Android, hTC Desire. Trouble is Apps like Daily Roads Voyager suck battery power like there is no tomorrow, even on the charger it never put back as quick as it takes. Im going to do what Rushy did and mount one permanently up beside the head lining, fit and forget.
