(Sorry, kinda long)
Tonight, while visiting my girlfriend's grandparents' house. A police officer knocked on the door and asked who was the owner of the white Versa parked in the street. I jumped up and said I was, what's the problem.. do I need to move it. The officer lives across the street and heard a loud bang outside and ran to see the next door neighbor had backed into my V.
The driver was a military guy driving a big Yukon suv. He said he wasn't paying attention and hit my back bumper. The driver kept telling the officer that he didn't want any trouble and didn't want to risk his CDL license or insurance on the Yukon. Also, that he didn't have a perfect record and didn't want this to affect that. The driver pulled back into his driveway and his brakes were loud as anything.
After several minutes, we (myself, officer, and other driver) agreed that I would get an estimate for repair and bring it to him, we would not go through insurance companies. However, the officer issued him a summons to appear in court in Oct. for "improper backing" Told him that normally if repairs are made then judge will drop everything.
Now I have to take my Versa to Maaco in the morning for an estimate. :-(
