Default Hit and Run... Sort of (Careless Kids)

So Today i was shopping, as i was walking back to my car i heard my car alarm go off. So i look and see some family squeezing themselves and their newly bought printer right by my car. With some 14 year old kid scraping the box against my hood.

I confront the family, and just say that they should be careful, since they hit my car hard enough to set off the shock sensor! The mom just says, "the boy is sorry".

I then look and see two 2" scraps on my paint (hood and 1/4 panel). So i tell them that they scraped it. The mom is like "Nope, we didnt, not us" and gets in her car and takes off.

I got a description, and the license plate #, but its an Alberta plate.
I made an ICBC claim, but since it wasnt the actual car that hit my car... There is nothing they can do about it. I can however get an appointment with the inspector, and pay the deductible.

(I dont know if its worth it to pay $300, and if they will just paint the scratch, wont it look outta place against the slightly faded 10 year old paint.)


I kinda understand... Its just some 14 year old kid being careless, But it really left a bad taste in my mouth and ruined my day.

How deep are the scratches?

Maybe the body shop can just polish it off vs paint it. PM loomin and he might be able to help ya out.

I feel ya though, I parked my car at work, came back at the end of the day with my rear bumper scratched right down to the plastic and across about 4-5 inches. Looks like someone pulled out of the spot behind me and just scraped right along. Need to repaint it. And this is after JUST replacing the bumper a few months ago

I was on the ferry a few years ago, a couple gets out of their car behind me and goes upstairs to the passenger deck. About 3 minutes later the SUV next to them has the door flung open by a kid in the back and puts a dent in the side of the car quite literally the size of a basketball. The mom gets out, looks at the dent, and they all go upstairs. I take a nap in my car.

As everyone comes back down from upstairs, the family gets back in their SUV and the couple gets back in their car, and I knock on their window and tell them about the dent. The guy gets out, looks at the dent, looks at the SUV, knocks on the window and the woman gets out, tells the guy to shut up and get back in his car.


People are such awesome role models for their kids. These are the same parents that end up on Maury talking about their out of control children with whom they've 'tried everything to make them behave', except for possible behaving themselves.

Ugh.

Oh man.. seeing these stories makes me cringe. It makes me sick how inconsiderate some people can be when it comes to these things. Just because they don't take pride or care in their own possessions, they think that no one else should either.

If it were me, I would definitely pay the deductible and get my hood repainted. I wouldn't want see a visual reminder on my hood everytime I look at my car and have to think back on stupid people like that.

Depends on how pristine your car was - it's unfortunate fact of life that people around you will not care about stuff (or car) that isn't theirs. If it wasn't, and the 2" scrape isn't too much of an eye sore, I say just leave it - don't think it will rust, and certainly, a 10yr old car isn't worth the deductible to fix up the body parts, but that's just me

Should have yelled at them before they leave though - at least get it out of your system

My car came out of the body after being backed into by an elderly lady. Had it back for just over a week when I was parked at the new Burnaby Costco, this place has the biggest parking stalls anywhere! I came back to the car which I had backed into the space to find the entire front fender, bumper cover and headlight smashed. The moron Escalade driver parked next to me did $3000 damage to our car while backing out of their space! Of course they were long gone, no note, and no witnesses other than someone who heard my alarm go off.

i parallel parked near bc place to go to the auto show within half a year after i bought my car brand new. After the show i went back to my car to find a dent across my rear passenger door, with some white scratch marks as well. This is on the side facing the streets. Nobody left a note or anything, im suspecting a shopping cart or some dumbass skateboarder...

before this, somebody drove by my car while parked on the streets and took out my driver side side mirror. This one, a note was left with the license plate, apparently the driver smashed my mirror and just drove off. I was able to do an icbc claim and didnt have to pay the deductable.

oh and one more, at the harbor center parking lot, with me and my girlfriend sitting in the car, some white lady in a huge yellow suv decides to back up her car from a lot across from me and backs into my car, enough to bump it and shock us. She obliviously did not realize it and starts to drive off, i ran after her and told her she just bumped my car, we were inside and it shook. She rolls down her window and goes oh, did i? takes a quick glance at my car, and drives off. I copied down her license plate, good thing this one didnt do any damage as it was a hitch of some sort on her rear that bumped into my front license plate.

It's like once u get a new car, people aim to scratch/dent/bump your car on purpose or something.

It doesn't matter if you have a new car or an old one, people still don't respect your stuff round here.

Last summer I was in my car waiting for the gf to get off work at Metrotown. A woman parked next to me and when she opened the door I felt and heard her door hitting my car. I rolled down the window and calmly said "Just let you know you hit my car". She went and said "I didn't hit it that hard". When she said that I got . I firmly said back to her "That's not the point, you should take more care when opening your door". She proceeded to walk away from me.

I was so temped to move over to the passenger seat and open my door into her car but I sucked it up and just checked the damage. Luckly I have those door things so there was no damage to the actual door.

And once again, if she does ask you if you just punched her in the face, say "Nope, we didnt, not us"
