Default update... my car was hit again within 3 days..WTF?

why do people not no how to drive.. i come out of the mall and procede to walk to my car. once i approach my baby i then notice what looks like my door molding sorting hanging so as i get 10 feet away i drop my bags and go (OH ****) (WHY ME) then i see for sure that my drivers side back door molding is hanging off about 7 inches from the car and has a black line across my whole door. my first thing was to look at the car next to me and sure enough there was fresh clean white paint on the bumber and her black bumber molding was all scratched up as well as covered with white paint so i think to my self ( how stupid can someone be to hit me and then leave the car parked right next to me... i can tell the person turned too wide to get in the spot and hit me. so then i call mall security and they told me they had the persons info that the driver who hit me left all her info for me as she could not wait around and miss her hair appointment. she was atleast 70 years old and driving a 1992 oldsmobile cutlas. so i called her insurance and made the appt to take my car in for a estimate on the damage... i think they will just say i need a new door trim molding and call it a day... please see the link for the 4 pics of the damage.

That'* irritating! As already mentioned, at least she left her info. Lots of people wouldn't. Collisions happen (I don't call them "accidents" because they are preventable, often with little effort at all), but some people scream in and out of parking lots with no regard to the people or vehicles around them. My friends all give me a hard time because I park about 400 miles from anything. So far I've been pretty lucky but I know this isn't always possible. Best wishes in getting your baby back together!

I believe they should pass a law once you reach a certain age...

where you have to re-take your license test.

Certain age? It should be every 2-3 years. 99% of people haven't a clue as to how to drive responsibly anymore.

I was stopped behind some fossil that couldn't see two inches in front of his face last night and thankfully I stopped about a car length and a half behind him because he starts letting his 1978 LeSabre roll backwards about 15 feet for no apparent reason! If I had stopped any closer, my poor Silhouette would have needed a bit of repair and that old man would have been meeting his maker sooner than he thought.

Some people are just too old to be driving and others are just too stupid. All of the above are dangerous. But you know? They won't pass laws for it, because those people vote and the politicians wouldn't get elected again if they pissed off the old people.

Sucks about your car though, I know most would not leave their info.

Yeah, I was at vanderbuilt hospital back in 2001 when my daughter was there for leukemia. I witnessed this couple whip into a parking space and litteraly hit this brand new truck. They backed up and went and found another parking space further down. Got out of their car and went and looked at the truck. then had the nerve to laugh at their ability to avoid their debt. So as they went inside, I got their license plate number, make of car, and a breif description of what happened. Too include their humor. I left a note on the windsheild of the truck with my contact info and the info on the couple. 2 weeks later, an elderly lady called and said she was the owner of the truck. That night her husband had passed away and she didn't even notice the damage when she went out to her truck to leave (whenever that was). When asked what she owed me, i told her nothing but the thanks she had already given me for it. but it felt good to do and hope someone would do the same for me.

I will never forget the incident I saw at Meijer last year. An old guy was coming from one of the lanes in the parking lot, turned left into the main driving lane, and proceeded to hit the stop sign that is in the center between the opposing directional lanes. He hit it with his drivers side front fender and even pushed the sign (with the cement base) about five feet. People were all around dumbfounded watching this guy. He just kept going and parked on the side of the building not more than 20 feet from where I was standing by my car leaving. I watched him get out and glance at his car before walking in. He was about 75 years old with two inch thick coke bottle glasses. I'm sure he was probably legally blind or something and didn't even see the big old dent and scrapes he put in his car.

For a long time now, my 95 year old grandma has had to take the test every year because of her age.
