My neighbor has a habit of parking too close to my vehicles

 

This coincides with the fact that my car has been picking up mysterious dents and scratches for some time now..

 

This morning I noticed that my neighbors car was parked nose to nose with mine... Shortly after, he got into his car and backed straight into my rear bumper..

 

I witnessed the entire incident.. However before I could get outside, he'd sped off

 

I just wanted some advise on how you would deal with this situation

 

I am furious, but want to make sure that I do not overreact.

 

The fact that I have always been very cordial with my neighbor makes the incident the more baffling, because if I had not witnessed the incident, my neighbor would pretend that nothing had happened.. and he would smile and ask how my day/evening was like he usually does..

Sorry, I don't understand this, if he was parked nose to nose, how could he have backed into your rear bumper ? If he was reversing then he would have hit whomever was behind him ?

Take pictures of the damage and show them to the neighbour. Advise that you wish to resolve the matter without going through insurance or issuing a court claim against them. See what they say.

 

You can probably get a mobile smart repair done fairly cheaply. Even my local Ford garage uses a mobile smart repairers to do work them, rather than use their own body repair people for minor damage.


We could do with some help from you.

I am half tempted to 'let this go'... acquire the dash cam and catch him in the act

 

The other half of me wants and apology and the promise that he won't come near my car again

 

pics have been taken.. i do not see any fresh paint thanks for the help guys

If it's not major damage or costly,then I'd let it go and get the cam. Especially if he's done it multiple times. Then all you need to do is give the footage to the police
