Thanks David for your feedback. Yes, that guy got lucky in many respects. He only had to pay the money that WE had paid for repairs not covered by insurance. The insurance rep was not interested (I was surprised since the loss was over $8K), neither the police officer in giving him a ticket. I remain unconvinced of his remorse, he figured that if just pay us up, it would cost him a lot less ;-) Me pleasure was on been able to tracking him down, and I just wish I had the opportunity to been a fly in the doorway, while the police officer gave him a scare!

Thanks for that Rene, the story was as good as I thought it would be, and well worth your trouble in writing it out for Max's columns. As Max says, great work. I reckon the guy got off lightly - sounds like the police did not prosecute him for traffic violations and the insurance company did not recover their costs from him either!

Thanks for sharing your blog space Max, I feel honored to have shared my little adventure... ;-) and David, I realize that this may not compare to a crime novel, but I felt that I had to remain truthful to the real story and myself. Hope you enjoy.
