And a pink one at that.
Personally I reckon that's a hanging offence.
I would go ape.

Any scratch to an Aston owner is a write off apparently.

Quite doubt that's a write off... It's 'only' cosmetic damage from what I can see...

 

Stupid woman, how can you not control a shed like that anyway? Lucky if it hits 30 with a gale behind it...

It did not say it was a woman in the Corsa, it might have been a.... er....  Man 

 

Is it me or does it look like 2 shades of pink?

 

A Ford handles better - it would have at least made it round the roundabout a bit more and missed the Aston :)   

 

Valuable cars are sometimes not written off even if they are "totalled", because they are worth so much, they are often worth repairing even new shells/ total rebuilds were not uncommon 

 

This would never happen to James Bond! :lol:

Some one just totalled 23 year old sons VTS (yes I know) when she pulled out of a side street and took the whole side off his car, then drove off without stopping. When the police caught up with her she said she didn't even remember doing it! Anyway good old police have let her off, not even points or a fine. Suspect if that had been my son he would have been in a cell.

 

Anyway he's now got himself a Clio sport 197, looks good and mighty fast so at least something good come out of it.

That's outrageous, I hope they managed to pass the insurance on?

Clear case of driving without due care and attention (under section 2 of the road traffic act 1991), the penalty should have been anything between up to £5000 fine and between 3 and 9 points.

Leaving the scene of an accident is an arrestable and inprisonable offence and should have at least lead to revocation of her license and will usually also result in voiding of her insurance policy.

Her statement that she didn't "remember it" is a clear statement of guilt and she should have been charged.

I think the Officers that dealt with the incident should be brought to task.

Can't agree more but what can he do? He got a letter from police saying he could take out a civil case but what would he get out of that, and what effect would it have on her?

If he has legal cover on his insurance policy then it won't cost him anything.

The effect on the other driver is that she will be brought to book for what she should have been prosecuted for.

I'm saddened to see that my "Fellow Officers" are obviously being 'slack' in their duties.
