took a trip out today to get the head trimmed and pulling out in pudsey centre car par a grandad aka coffin dodger goes and nearly 2 inch's close side swipes me ive got a right scrape on my front bumber now bcse of this stupid beer bottle bottom glasses

he states " oh im sorry son i didnt see you there hope my cars ok i just washed it at morrisons"

so at this time im like all the electrical circuits in my head have started to short out and spark, and im see red.. my body temp has risern by 5'c and i say ti him

" look fella i really dont car about your jaguar/rover75 hybrid all im bothered about is how you didnt see my shiney silver car its loud enough and big enough not to miss due to those telescopes you have on your face. look at the hugh scratch on the bumper its gunna cost alot to repaint it (glad its the standard bumper and not my new top secret 1). so with out even saying anything he gets back in his car n just drivers off.

now i know ive got a bad choice with words sometimes but do you thing i offended him?

so even OAP'S are assclowns they shud be banned from driving anywhere...

so now im in abad mood so sorry in advance if i offend any1

is there no cctv in the car park? if you report him for leaving the scene of an accident and refusing to give his details (thats a seperate offence) the fuzz should look at the cctv, also you can get a crime ref number for your insurance then as well.

how bads the damage? pic?

Bollox to karma. Find where he lives and tell him your mates a solicitor and you want cash for the repair or you call the rozzers

I think old people should be banned from the road personally, along with stereotypical women drivers. I had some old couple royally cut me up on a dual carriageway the other day and didn't even look in their mirrors when I had to slam my brakes on and bib them.

I'd get on and see if there were any CCTV cameras and then report him!

The only solution to issues like these is to scare them into having a coronary :)

Did you seriously not even get his Reg plate??!! Even a partial match and the colour/make/model will be enough for the police - old people don't tend to drive long distances so its highly likely he lives nearby

Edit - any town centre will have CCTV, the police will definitely be able to find him if you give them the time and date + location ;)

There are lots of tossers on the road and not all of them are codgers.
I can think of one or two codgers that would be quick enough to catch a number on a reg plate if someone gave their car a dig and p*ssed off in front of them:)

you let him drive off from a scene of an accident - I would have grabbed him (old or not) and not let him leave - he totally played you with the sorry son routine

Did anyone witness it and give you there details.

Even if they trace the driver, if he denies being involved and you dont have a witness it may be differcult to claim off his insurance. :(

Hope it works out ok for you mate..
