Well, today I had what I have been trying to avoid (so far successuflly), damage to the Trep, that wasn"t there before.
This situation is pissing me off quite a bit, even though it is not a lot of damage. Maybe some of you can give me some advice on what I should do.
Here is what happend, I came out of the Sience Center at the College to day at around 3pm. I had parked right at the front parking lots pretty close to the doors... the pole position if you want. So I come out and I see a note under my windshield... At first I though it was one of those annoying flyers they pass out illegally in the lot, but nope.... here is what it said:
I saw a car clip yours on the passenger side as they pulled into the spot next to you.
Their plate number is;... "
Unfortunately the note didnt give me a name of the guy who wrote it, since I did want to thank him, around here its not very commen that anyone even gives a damn.
Crap... was my first reaction. so I look in the back... some damage... a bigger scratch along side of the bottom of the bumper, it ripped that cover thing of the inside of the tire oppening off a little, went along my tire and scratched up that a bit (not moe then hitting a curve though) and scratched over my rim.... the damage is probably easily fixable by cleaning and waxing it right, but at some areas on the bumper and the rim it went down to the metal. Even though you can barely see it, it pisses me off like nobodys business.
I decided to call the cops on that male genitalia, just because he ran. (the note cam obviusly from a third person. and the car with that plate was nowhere to be found).
So a couple of minutes later a police officer came by took some notes, and called in the plate... I overheard the dispatch saying "88 Buick, we are sending a unit out"... I had to get my license wich I left in the car, and I didnt hear the address... a couple of minutes later, the officer on scene calls in and tells my cop, that the house is probably vacant.... CRAP!... So I went to take some pictures, you never know ( Im going to try to add them later)
So the officer tells me by Tuesday I can get the report from them at the station. This is my first intereaction with the american police (or any polive for that matter) where I am not on the screwed side of the law, so I was a bit dissapointed by the amound of action that was taken.
So this is where I am... not a lot of damage, but still, I probably will go to the insurance.... my insurance dude is pretty cool, since we got all of our cars insured with him, he likes us a bit and gives us a lot of bonuses and such).
I assume that the guy who hit me doesnt have insurance or anything like that, so probably I wont even get anything, but the fact that he ran, pissed me off so much that I just want to try to get as much money out of him as possible.
you know what, I dont know if this is against page policy or not (if not just delete the number), but here is the guys plate number> New Mexico DJP677.
If anyone can do anything with that number, please do, I would really like to visit him with some friends if he turns out to be uninsured.
the damage is as Isaid rather tiny, but its the principle of the thing that gets me
