I understand accidents happen.  And yeah, sure, I would still be pissed about you backing into my brand new--exactly fifty-one miles old scooter--but the real crime here, is that you didn't own up to it.  Thanks for setting it back up after scraping the crap out of the left side, breaking the left mirror, scraping the left brake handle all to hell, and breaking off the lower left side light--but what would have been the RIGHT thing to do, would have been to leave a note with your contact info, and an apology.

No worries, though--We'll find you.  The Wurstkuche security cam has a pretty good picture of the whole thing going down (no pun intended) @ exactly 9:01, November 26th (if you think I'm bluffing), so now, instead of an unfortunate accident between neighbors, now it is a hit and run--a felony, old chum, and don't think I will be feeling particularly magnanimous once we find you.  I will do everything I can to make sure that you never even THINK about victimizing anyone else.

 

Thanks for listening.

I'd be curious to know if the police make any real effort to use that video to find the offender.  Let us know what happens.

Not the cops, but the insurance company will take note - I had a guy (a Venice neighbor) back into my drivers door in front of my house and another neighbor saw him.....  No, he did not get arrested but they did make him pay - My guess is that if he had refused to, AAA would have pressed charges - Also, it is WAY different if there is an injury as opposed to a parking incident....

If the tape has the license plate number you can use that information, a copy of your police report, to request the name and address of the owner from DMV. They won't release the info without the police report.

 

Get that info and sue them in small claims court.

 

Don't forget if you can't serve them, post the suit in the Argonaut, go to court, get a judgment and then lien the vehicle. You get them one way or the other.

 

Good luck.
