Still some honest people about!!

Post by Ghiggz » Tue Apr 02, 2019 7:19 pm

My wife got home from work yest and handed me a note that was left under the wiper when she returned to the car after work..
She parks in the street all day while at work..

Said "sincere apologies I scraped your car today, please ring me on [tel] for my details.."
There was some scrape damage to front bumper...

I rang him up, he was very apologetic, said he had already rang his insurance and given my reg, we swapped details,
I rang mine this morning and they rang me back to say the other party have accepted liability and they will organise my repair asap..

Fair play a lot of people would have just driven off..
There are some decent people still about..

:D Apart from the obvious, this makes me very happy. Good result from a bad situation.

They took our Ateca Thursday for repairs and have given us a 67 Suzuki Vitara SZ-T!!
OMG what a pile of crap!!!
Considering its only about £2-3k less than our Ateca was, its a pure awful car!!!

Glad the person was so honest but why are people so blind driving, not like the bumber even sticks out anymore than the lights that you could easily see from the driving seat.

I hit someone’s Audi once, had no paper to write on and had to rush off as my 3yo was desperate for the toilet. Took photos and went to the police station to report it and they were able to contact the owner. I always believe in doing the right thing but never has anyone done the same to me when my car has been hit.

Have come back to my car and my wife's car to find scrapes and dents on a number of occasions without anyone making a single attempt to contact me. I backed into someone once and, although it was parked illegally I still fessed up. Feel like a mug sometimes but honestly is important
