I do have moral, but I don't feel guilty. I'd still drive off, I wouldn't even stop tbh.(Original post by fosters88)
1)morals and a guilty feeling in your mind. If you have no morals or guilt, I hope it happens to you!
2)the OP stated the third-party was sitting in the car
3)there may be witnesses
4)there may CCTV footage

did you get their details?
did you get a photo of the damage?
It sounds trivial to me but it is the Third-parties opinion that counts on if action is taken.
Ideally the Third-party should either say "no action" or "settle privately".
If settle privately you will pay for the repairs. They will get a quote for the repairs and present this to you for you to pay.
You should have taken a picture of the damage to their car and then you can get quotes with the picture just so you know the third-party is 1) getting reasonable quotes for the repair to the damage and 2) is not giving you a well over prices quote because they have added additoinal repairs!
The third-party certainly should not involve Insurers if it is trivial and you are willing to settle privately however if you are awkard and refuse, I'm afriad they could go down the Insurance path.

This short post demonstrates neatly everything that is wrong with driving instruction today. We should be teaching people to drive, not just to pass their test! It is a cause of great frustration to me as an instructor because I try to do the job properly and ultimately to other motorists on the road when drivers actually demonstrate a complete inability to drive!
p.s., I do know of some instructors who actually cover putting fuel in the car within a lesson so that the pupil has done it! I can see the logic...

I crashed into a parked car on my bike once. Fell off in the middle of the road, got up, picked up my bike and ran away
