A Mum from Manchester felt the wrath of a member of the public this month when they not only rammed into her car but left a note explaining they wouldn’t be giving her their insurance details because her ‘car is s**t’.

Sarah Hall had parked her car in Ramsbottom, Greater Manchester while she worked at a nearby chemist.

But after finishing her shift she found her Suzuki Celerio with the wing mirrors pushed in and a note under one of the wipers.

It read simply: “Sorry. Hit your car. But not giving my details as your car is s**t!!

“Have a nice day, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.”

Sarah, who lives in Bury, couldn’t see anyone responsible in the immediate area.

On returning home she took to facebook to share a photo and to ask if anyone could find who might be responsible.

“My car is fine I’m just curious who did it?” she said.

“My car is s**t but only I’m allowed to say that!”

Sarah bought the 2015 Suzuki for £4,500 two years ago and says it’s in ‘decent condition’.

“I don’t think the note’s genuine as I can’t see any damage,” she said.

“Unless I’m that daft I can’t see it.”

“I’d just like to know who’s behind it.”

Failing to report an accident is actually a criminal offence in the UK.

Not doing so can result in points on a licence, a heavy fine or in serious examples, a prison sentence.

If details are exchanged at the scene then there is no need to make a police report however.

And if emergency services aren’t required then accidents don’t have to be reported immediately as long as police are informed within 24 hours.

Some 12 percent of accidents in the UK involve a hit-and-run driver.

If the driver who has hit your car leaves then the advice is not to follow them.

According to the AA, it can also make you responsible in the eyes of the police as a driver fleeing the scene.

An insurer should be contacted as soon as possible and photos of any damage should be taken.
