If it makes you feel any better I had to repaint my rear bumper after 184 miles. Some damn old handicap lady scratched some of my paint off. She drove off but I remembered who parked next to me, searched my town for other handicap parking spots. Found her car, blocked her in, called the cops.

How long before someone comes out with a camera setup that takes a series of shots in all directions for a few seconds after any impact is sensed? Just enough to get a license plate. Wouldn't work in every scenario, but if enough people had something like that in their car, it would keep a lot of people more honest just because they wouldn't know if the car they just hit had cameras in it.

Awesome. One day I hope I can bring out some vigilanteism and catch a criminal. I'd feel like Batman.

You bet I did... found her in the handicap spot of a supermarket. Cops came down, went in the store and brought her outside, showed her my paint on her bumper and asked her what happened. Her response "I thought I felt something". Long story short, her insurance had to pay for it.

To continue the interesting story from the insurance company....
Cost to fix my bumper $900

Her insurance company said "hmmm you can probably get it done for less here's $650 have a nice day"

My response "Nope, that was the fair price where I live. That's what it costs to fix correctly"

Her insurance company "too bad it's all we're giving you"

So I took a drive to the court house, filed a small claims suit against the poor old blind handicap lady who hit my brand new car.

two days later I had a check in the mail for the difference from her insurance company.

Job well done. I would have taken it a step further, and called the State insurance commissioner and filed a complaint against the insurance company.

Her insurance company was really doing their client a disservice. Their job is to protect their client from such law suits. They didn't want to do their job so I had no choice. I did feel bad for the lady though, cause she thought she had insurance for such reasons and next thing she knew she had a law suit against her. The company knew they had no chance to win though, hence the check in the mail.

I posted this story on here because I've heard of many people who get screwed by insurance companies. Many people just say oh well I guess this is all I get and they stay quiet about it. So you know, you only have a contract with your insurance company not someone else's. If another party damages your property they are responsible for the damage, it's up to them how they pay you, whether they choose to use their insurance or pay themselves. But they have to pay one way or another.

They already have this and it's awesome! It is either Wheel Power or Race Precision who had a prototype on it for an E60 M5 at Mfest. They can have it send pictures to your phone, use your phone to unlock your car, start it, etc. Amazing concept!
