phone the police say the person that hit you car has contacted you and its being sorted and they will close case . but only if you are sure she will pay but yes i think you did right thing

if someone hit my car and denied it i would call police if you let one person get away with damaging your car who knows what damage they will do to next car

a girl hit my car and denied it a few years back. i had a witness to it but she still denied it and drove off.

I contacted the police and when she was stopped it turned out she didnt have a full licence.

ok the boot admitted it and said i would get to claim her mums insurance and a few days later theyv decided theyre denying it and wont answer the police when they try to contact them!

i have texts admitting the incident but apparantly these wont do anything for me

it looks like i have to go to the cheap place as i cant afford anything higher

what are my options now??? what would you do? im getting really tempted to drive out there at stupid oclock and let my rage swing freely!as they live in the middle of nowhere

The driver who has been involved in a road traffic accident when damage occurs to another vehicle must stop and, if required to do so by any person having reasonable grounds for so requiring, give their name and address and also the name and address of the owner and the identification marks of the vehicle, i.e. index number.

If for any reason the driver of the car does not give his name and address, they must report the accident.

A person who fails to comply with the above is guilty of the offence.

If they have not or will not do this then you should remind the police of your report and continue down this line, why should you lose out for someone else’s incompetence. I would advise keeping the text messages as they are a type of evidence especially if it goes to court.

The only thing I can foresee which I may have missed is whether it happened on private land (i.e. drive) or on a road or public place, the law requires on a road or public place, have you also told your insurance company, give them her registration number as they can access details.

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.

      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”

      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.

      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.

      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
