What could you realy say in a situation like that? :/ you can moan and groan all you like but it wont get you anyway with the person(s) who did it :@ thats one thing im always realy careful of not doing although once I opened the door and the wind was that strong it whipped the door out my grasp and hit the car next to me leaving a slight mark but I waited a minute or so and the guy came back to his car and I appogised for it and he was fairly sound about it to be honest

Someone did that to me a month after buying but drove off. Luckily someone else took her number and I got them to pay for repairs no insurance involved.

I always try, (with the emphasis on TRY) to put my hand round the edge of the door, when I think there may be a possibility of it bumping into another vehicle in a car park, it's not always possible or even practical to do it at times, but I like to think i'm more considerate of other peoples motor's than some are of mine

Technically, if someone hits your car with their door and drives away they are leaving the scene of a collision, and are therefore breaking the law.

If you take their registration and report it your insurance company they will usually pursue it, but you have to think to yourself -

is it worth your excess?

It would probably cost less to repair yourself in most cases.

 

Some of it is the principle of the matter, the fact that your property gets damaged just because someone couldn't give a :censored:

One I'd forgotten about but was reminded of today when driving along listening to the radio. When a song comes on the radio and it has sirens in the background of the song even just faintly cause you automatically look around to see if there's an emergency service coming anywhere around you. Personally think song writers etc should be banned from using siren that are similar to emergency vehicle sirens in their songs! Grr lol

When I braked for a dog that ran in the road, and put hazard lights on, some prat in a GM piece of junk is inches of slamming into me, and then beeps like a madman...

 

Surely he should have seen the dog as it was clear to see on the opposite side of the road, seen the nice bright red brake lights, and seen the hazard lights? Due care and attention much?
