She can be prosecuted for leaving the scene of an accident under Section 170 of the Road Traffic Act 1988.
She could get 5 points or more.
Did she report the accident to her insurers?
If not then they will hammer her.

She reported only after police had visited her, I made sure when her insurers called me I told them she drove off and I only got details from police
I really hate to think shed gotten away with it (insurance aside) as it happened right outside a primary school

she was lucky that there wasnt any small persons injured!

 

At least your getting the issue resolved at mostly her expense! its a shame though, but at least as well its on the police radar!

This happened to my son last year, woman drove out of her drive straight into side of his car drove off. Police traced her and did b****r all about it after she claimed she didn't know she had hit him, this is his car after

Evidently her bumper was covered in red paint, her car was blue, and hanging off 

 

For your accident I wouldn't hold your breath that the police will act I'm afraid.

Oh geeze! That sucks
Surely in cases like this they can use descretion that they're obviously lying, as I was saying to my husband yesterday I don't know what's worse: her saying she didn't know she'd done it, or the copper believing her!

There is no way that two cars can collide without both parties knowing it, if its a light slap and just a slight noise then you can get away with it if your deaf, but most the time, whenever to parts clash you actually feel it through the car, so really although the officer can only take her word for it, he will know what language shes speaking and it probably rhymes with fit...

Car is diabolical, I really don't understand why anyone would spend their own hard earned money and buy one! You don't know if it's in gear or not as the gear changer is so shallow, the car stinks literally it's a 63 plate and smells like clutch is on it's way out omg I could be here all day lol

its a rental - dont be gentle.

 

I suggest - nay - insist! that it is your duty as a member of this forum to rag that little tin can until you break it! If you hand it back to them without one thing being accidentally injured in the process then you are seriously letting the side down!!!

Got my car back now - yay!
Tbh that courtesy corsa is by far and away the very worst car I have driven, I couldn't break anything or they'd claim for it on my insurance, but I certainly didn't take care of it whilst it was in my company.......am I forgiven? Lol
