So I bought a new car a few weeks ago and also installed a front and back dashcam.
I was stopped in traffic and I see this woman completely not paying attention and I thought she was on her phone ran up the back of me. She wasn't going to stop initially and I had to chase her for awhile beeping and she eventually pulled over.
So when she gets out she seems a little bit sorry but after she saw there was no damage to her car and it was just mine which had damage on the bumper trim caused by the screws in her number plate she changed her tune somewhat. She then was telling me how she didn't feel like she hit me and the only reason she stopped was because her proximity sensor went off but didn't feel a bump.
I didn't really care and I was like fine whatever just give me your details which she still refused. I just said it's all been recorded and I will just send the footage to the police if she doesn't.
So anyway she still refuses until I show her the dashcam footage. Sure enough after about 40 minutes of dicking around and connecting wifi and downloading there was the footage of her driving into the back of me. She gives her license and we head off.
Now watching the footage on your phone in the glare of the sun didn't really show just how much of a liar she was. You can see she was on the phone as well as her head jolt on impact. She reverses after the impact as well. She was just trying to gauge how much evidence I had.
So anyway should I report her to the police? If so how do you do it? Is there an email(NSW)?
Also this is an insanely small claim it is literally just a tiny scratch on the trim. Providing there was nothing damaged functionally do you think they would replace the trim to make it good as new as the car was new? If they could hide it etc and it was functional I would probably accept that but this lady was such a bitch about the whole process I think she needs a bloody lesson taught to her.
Edit. Simulation of the crash here
