One In Six People Won’t Leave A Note If They Hit A Parked Car
If you’ve ever been in the situation where you have ran into a parked car with your car, there is always that moment where you think, “Nobody even saw anything.”
Most normal people with a conscious do the right thing though and find the driver or at least leave a note with their contact information.
Most does not mean everyone though as a new study from Market Watch found out.
17% of people say they would NEVER leave a note with their contact info or insurance details if they hit a parked car. That’s one in six people who just drive away and leave you with a brand new dent.
Just under half of people say they’d only leave a note if the damage they caused looked serious. That means only about one-third of people would leave a note when they dinged someone else’s car.
People over 55 are most likely to say they’d leave a note, and people under 24 are least likely.
31% of people say they wouldn’t leave a note because they’re embarrassed about the accident. 30% say they wouldn’t leave a note because of the financial implications.
Has anyone ever hit your car without leaving you a note?
