You either hit it or you didn't. Which is it?

So why have you handed a stranger your contact information? What evidence did they have?

Yea 'shock' doesn't make much sense unless you know fine well you'd done or hit something tbh.

"You hit my car"

"No I didn't"

"Give me your details!"

"No"

"I'll call the police!"

"You do that" *leave*

The fear of hitting someone’s car then driving off thinking you didn’t just for them to do you for hit and run or leaving the scene of an accident or whatever it is they do you for nowadays so it’s always best to get out and check damage and ask what evidence they have etc, you can tell if you’ve hit a car by looking at their car and your own and matching the damage together and in all honestly idk how you could miss hitting a car especially when reversing up a street where you’re going to be fully focused on observations.

There is people who claim you’ve hit them to get past damage repaired it’s happened to me, you’re saying there’s no damage on yours but is on hers? If you’re 100% sure you didn’t hit anything why would you hand over your details for them to now claim you hit their car?

I think in this situation I would of just drove off if I was certain I didn’t hit anything and they probably would of dropped it as it sounds like they’re just trying to get some damage repaired caused by themselves or someone else.

This, it's just not credible that you wouldn't notice IMO, you feel the weight balance of the car change immediately, even for small plastic impacts like bumpers

And yep, there's totally chancers out there who will see a wet behind the ears driver as a ticket for a free car/repairs, they don't give a **** how much it costs you in excess.
