Leaving the scene

Post  Charly on Sat Apr 27, 2013 6:28 pm

Sat watching TV earlier and happened to glance out of the window just in time to see a big black Audi reverse into my car lifting it off the road. (Luckily its not dented, just damage to the paintwork )
I ran outside in time to see the culprit driving off and to get his reg number, a neighbour said it was the guy who had just delivered his takeaway.
I rang the takeaway only to have them deny delivering in my street today...the neighbour still had the bag with the name on.
I drove down to Yorkshire Street, found the car and took a couple of photos of their damage before I was surrounded by 9 or 10 men.
The owner said he hadnt driven the car today but when I pointed out the damage he tried to rub the marks off so told him I had the reg and had taken some photos, he still denied it so I asked him if he wanted to get it sorted out before I rang the police...he shouted 'get the police' ...so I have.
The police said he could be prosecuted for leaving the scene of an accident, well he had his chance!

What a carry on Charly....well done you for squaring up to them but, that could have been very dangerous. In these area's you can never have a 'one to one' disagreement without brothers, cousins, uncles etc muscling in on the act....I hope the Police sort it for you pronto!

I had a similar experience of 'parking in the wrong place' Charly - scary stuff.

Just a wild, crazy guess but I'm betting disqualified driver or learner with no tax, insurance or MOT.

Taking my cynicism a step further, am also betting that the driver won't be traced and/or no action will follow.

Cynicism can be such a difficult cross to bear at times.

Nice one kiddo. Seems to bring my old lady to mind. She was four foot nothing and had a punch like a gorilla. She wouldn't have taken any crap from them either, even had there been twenty of them. Hope it pans out. Wink Very Happy affraid bounce bounce

The ability of at least some of the ladies of Rochdale to "punch like a gorilla" is of course to be applauded, has always, and will always be, a useful skill in changing circumstances. However perhaps it should not be completely relied on as a universal and comprehensive method of shaping civic society of the future? Rolling Eyes

Not quite what I had in mind. Perhaps the gorilla punch method will have to do for the time being.

Maybe when you hear from the Police, you might want to name the food supplier and we can avoid them?

Phone call came about 4pm, I am being sent a form through the post which I have to fill in and return asap to enable them to investigate.
It seems although the car is insured it is not registered to anyone, does that sound iffy to anyone else?

Extremely iffy.

The majority of insurance companies will refuse to insure a vehicle unless you are the registered keeper of the vehicle. How can you insure something you do not own?

There are always exceptions to the rule but I doubt any reputable insurance company would insure a vehicle without the policy holder declaring the identity of the vehicle owner and their relationship i.e. father and son etc.

In order to tax a vehicle it needs to be insured and I am sure this can only be done by the registered keeper?

Thats what I thought Sparky, you dont need the log book when you tax your vehicle online but I dont know the situation regarding insurance, I dont remember having to produce the log book any time but they do ask if you are the registered keeper.

Plus, don't insurance companies need to know the driver details before even being able to give a quote so that they know age, number of penalty points, accident history etc?

Perhaps the system's changed since I renewed my insurance... last week.

I thought that police forces had direct access to DVLA records that showed the last registered owner, SORNs, insurance information, etcetera.

You're doing and returning paperwork before a local investigation can start Charly ? cyclops That's novel
