Cycling accident with parked car.

  Ush1 17:17 08 May 2017

Hi all. Advise please. My brother had a cycling accident yesterday, stupidly road into the back of a car whilst it was parked on a cycle lane. Damage was back screen and boot. The police on scrne said the driver would be happy to have it repaired on his insurance if he pays the excess. Fair enough we thought. The driver has come back today saying he cant claim on his insurance as they wont fix it. Suspicious i thought, Ive checked on the internet and now find its because he has no m.o.t. The police dont seem to want to help and now hes saying the bill is £650 and quite frankly its not worth that. Advise on next steps if anyone can help.

I would be inclined, on re-reading the original post, as well as what I have already said, to refer this to the IPCC as the police are apparently failing to prosecute a driver with no valid MoT certificate

It was stated that the repair costed was greater than the value of the car.

By whom?

OP did not state it in his first and only post nor has he replied to anything.

As the OP has not bothered to reply since the first page, it looks like the thread has been abandoned and is not worth discussing further.

Which leads me to draw my own conclusion of the nature of the poster which goes not in his favour.

A first time poster who doesn't reply seem rude.

And jb doesn't seem enamoured either >:[

"Which leads me to draw my own conclusion of the nature of the poster which goes not in his favour."

Snap judgements like that might just be what deters people from responding. There could be a dozen reasons why someone doesn't reply over a 24 hour period.

OK, I accept that and await further information if it is forthcoming.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
