Disgusting behaviour by some motorists

I SYMPATHISE with Sue Croxford (SCD October 22) whose vehicle was damaged by an unknown person.

I had a similar incident not so long ago, although not in a shopping centre car park.

My vehicle I had parked in a wide street where there were hardly any vehicles at all on a Saturday morning.

When I returned to my car about three hours later, I found that someone had backed into it and while the damage was not serious, it made me angry to think that a person can do that and not even have one shred of decency to leave an apology note, let alone any contact details.

The problem with this sort of thing is that if you were to claim insurance, you have to pay the excess as the insurance company is unable to garnish it from the perpetrator of the damage.

In my case, it was not worthwhile pursuing insurance since the damage would have virtually negated making a claim.

Unfortunately, there are those people who not only do they not care about their own vehicle, neither do they give a toss about anyone else's.

I agree with Sue Croxford's view of this sort of thing as "disgusting behaviour” but I fear it is another indicator of the wrong way society is heading.
