Sometimes you try to do the right thing-

A couple of years ago my friend hired a van to deliver some bits to central London. He was not so good at driving the van as the front wheels are behind the drivers seat. As a result of turning too early he ended up taking the bumper off a brand new BMW!!!

He did the right thing - put his details on the windscreen etc. As he had heard nothing he phoned the local police that night - nobody had reported the incident. They said that because he was on a double yellow line (or might have been dbl red) and the car was uninsured (they checked the reg) they couldn't do anything. As the owner never got in touch nothing ever happened!!! The main thing is that my friend did the right thing.

I wonder if the BMW was towed away and the driver blamed the towing company!
