    I agree that you do need to report the accident to the police, you could end up paying a fine if you don't. You can do that online these days, there's no need to go in to a police station.

    Also take photos of all the damage to the scooter & write down details that you remember of where & when it happened, basically EVERYTHING you can remember.

     If you have insurance go through them let them have the hassle of getting the bike fixed & claiming the money back off him . Did he admit it in writing or have you got whitenesses details

    Be careful with your insurance- they don't like people going around them, and they could cancel your policy if you enter agreements outside the terms of the policy.  Best to give them a ring and find out what to do- given the circumstances, your insurer will make a recovery from the old bloke anyway and you won't lose any no-claim bonus.  That way, if the old bloke doesn't eventually cough up the cash, the insurers lawyers deal with it and you have nothing to worry about.

    In my past incident, after the police charged the pedestrian, my insurer paid in full with no excess.  Insurers are generally pretty good, as long as you don't get a history of "at fault" accidents... this may be the concern of the old bloke BTW, thats why he's offering to pay- doesn't want the at-fault claims on his driving record?

    Witnesses definately helped in my case, but in a rear ender its usually pretty clear cut- the accident damage tells the story.

    it's great that you're showing compassion for the old guy. We all make mistakes or sometimes things get out of our control through no fault of our own.Still, for your own protection you need to do what's right by you. Reporting the accident to the police is a good start.

    I've certainly done what he did, hit the accelerator instead of the brake, fortunately only resulting in scratches to a car port pole & the car's door being bent back the wrong way. Embarrassed

    Nikko:

    Just read your last sentence joshzingzing. Report this accident to the Police if you have not already. Get this aged incompetent off the road before he does more than cause an innocent like you serious grief with your scooter. 

     

    You will be there one day. Chances are most senoirs are probably better drivers than you.

    Re: just got hit by car

    The police will not be interested given that nobody was injured, just make sure he has insurance on the hire car and get all those details suggest you visit the hire car company and see what they intend to do quicksmart before he leaves.

    Re: just got hit by car

    Yes TRA. I will be there one day if I survive the ride. And I will be glad to be tested.

    I am serious. S plates for the over 65's. Retest the old, frail useless drivers. I have seen them drive through pedestrian crossings against red lights. An education for my kids who were with me.

    And as for your last comment, utter crap, senoir. These aged drivers are a dangerous menace and should have too prove there ability or more posts like this will appear.
