Does this happen to you ofter that some jurk SUV parks in front of you and does NOT even know that it is riding on your NSX HOOD ?

Last night I waited untill the guy shows up and I was about to kick his ass but hi was bigger then me and was telling me that it was not him that did that.

The paint from my NSX was still on his bumper. I got his plates but he got it to the car and drove off.

What would you do right now ?

I would call the police and turn him in. I am sure he has already cleaned his bumper off. I would also let out a primal scream.
 
I'd be calling my buddies who own an interest in the garbage collection services and have his SUV junked with him in it.
 
Welcome to the world of assholes - they won't take responsibilty for their actions and they run away from issues that hurt others. Do whatever you can to track him down and press whatever charges you can (different states have different laws regarding personal property I believe). If he did that to you imagine what else he has done and what else he could do.

I absolutely hate people like that. You know the saying "what goes around comes around?" Be the guy who comes around...

One recommendation - carry a disposable camera in your glove compartment - that way you can take a quick shot of any 'issues' that come up and get proof that can be used in court. He probably would have been quite a bit more nervous if he saw you taking his picture while he was pulling his car off your hood...

This IS still an accident... even if at parking lot speeds. You should try to get him for a hit and run.

Ditto
 
Given the opportunity, you should have called the police while you waited for him to return. (Of course, he might have claimed you hit him!!) Now it's our word against his so your odds aren't real good, but your insurance company will still probably want to pursue it.
 
I would second the recommendation of keeping a disposable camera in your glove box at all times so that you have it ready in case something similar happens in the future.

I did this and now have great shots of my car after losing a fight with a guard rail

dont let that jackass get away with it, report to the police.

If u dont - this will eat away at u mentally.

use that trunk space up - put a baseball bat in there, it will come in handy.
 
Better report this right away or u can forget about it. Happened to my friend. And the driver who hit him basically said that my friend is the one who hit him. My friend front bumper and his rear bumper. His word, against my friend's word. Who do u think the cop going to believe?
 
It was a mistake letting him get away without knowing the consequences. While he was leaving, you should have at least made it clear that you have his license plate, that you will call the police and insurance since he is leaving the site of an accident.

He may have thought you would not do anything about it and drive off. It may have made him stay and deal with it... saving you the trouble of reporting this to the police so he is found.

I don't know much about law, but I would think it may be on your side because he drove off. Isn't it an offense to leave the scene of an accident, minor or not? He is guilty of that. He was required to exchange license, insurance and contact information.
Someone in the know... am I wrong about this??

I dont know what it is in New Jersey, but here in California it constitutes a hit and run with property damage. This is significant and adds 2 points to your license.
 
In reality, doing anything at this point other than notifying your insurance company to make a claim will unfortunately only add to your frustration and use up your time.

If you contact the police, you will likely find them disinterested at best in what happened to you. They will recommend that you file a police report, for which you will likely have to present yourself at their office. After you submit the report, exactly nothing will be done with it except that it will be filed and forgotten. Such incidents as yours are unfortunately so commonplace and police have neither the time nor interest in pursuing them.

At this point, unless your insurance company requires a police report or unless it makes you feel better to report this, I wouldn't expend the time or energy.
