word onthe street was that he tried to get the kid he was picking up into his car and GTFO.
only damage is a turn signal so i got 30 bucks and now i'm here. forks, wheel, tree and frame look good/straight minus preexisting conditions.
just a friendly reminder to remember where you park you FF's
Once the guy is caught trying to take off without accepting responsibility all bets are off and I threaten to call the police and get his insurance company involved and then I would get him for every scratch.
If it's an apologetic person and there is no damage then I say no worries or ask for cash for whatever little things are busted like a mirror or turn signal.
I HATE people who cannot take responsibility for their own actions and try to squirm out of things.
