I'm a student at Phoenix College and while sitting in my car waiting for the time to head to class some old pos 1986 BMW 325 pulls in next to me. After about 15 seconds he opens his door and it hits mine. I get out and see the dent and scratches in my paint. He said sorry and continued to gather his things for class, was totally not expecting me to ask for his information. We traded information and of course he didn't have his license on him (was in the mail supposedly) and his insurance card was expired. I wrote down his info and called his insurance company (some no name cheapo insurance company) and they were nice and I filed a claim, an adjuster is coming out within a couple days. I took it to 2 body shops for estimates to make sure I'm not low-balled on the repair. One is a printed estimate from a local shop for $346 and the other is a national chain body shop and he said it would be $400-500. We'll see what happens. Dents on a black car are kind of hard to photograph. Also my car is dirty from a rain storm a few days ago. Accidents happen and I get that, that's fine. But when he was kind of brushing it off as if I wasn't going to ask for his information, I wasn't thrilled. No my car isn't a brand new show car, but you messed up my car dude! His car doesn't have that spring that holds the door in place when you open it, so it just kept on opening. There was tons of room between our cars. I have no doubt that if I wasn't in the car 10 minutes later and the guy did that he wouldn't have left a note or anything. Maybe older people are a lot more likely to do the right thing, he was about my age (20) and it's sad that I know what he would have done by shrugging it off. Why don't people do the right thing?
