all will be fine, happy and good until the day you need to make a claim.

A couple of supporting stories:
1. My mom was sitting in her car in a parking lot one time. She hadn't even put the keys in the car. A wild-driving kid raced up fast into the parking space behind her and didn't stop in time and bumped her. She got out and talked to the kid and there was no damage at all. She let the kid go, not trying to make a big deal of it. But then after he left she thought, "what if he says I hit him or something?" She called her insurance company just to ask about it.
3 weeks later her rates went up. She called and asked why and they mentioned the parking lot incident. Monsters! Mad | :mad:

2. My son was driving on a street with no stops signs or lights or reasons to stop. A guy in a large truck, waiting in a parking lot, pulled out in front of my son. He slammed on brakes and slid and almost missed the guy, but he just touched the guy's truck.
The guy went crazy saying that my son hit him. My son said, "there's not damage and I'm in a hurry to work, why even get police involved?"
The guy went nuts.
Police came and the guy was arguing and yelling. Policeman said, "there's no damage and you pulled out in front of him." Guy kept yelling.
The policeman came to my son and sheepishly said, "I'm not going to cite anyone, just to get him to calm down."
Days later our insurance called us and said, "Hey, your son had a wreck."
The other guy had reported it to his company -- it was their truck and he was late to work and needed an excuse. Company called police and got report and reported it to insurance.
No one was cited. Because the other company reported it our insurance company said he was involved in a wreck. Rates went up. Monsters!! Mad | :mad:
We should've fought to have the other guy cited. But we were being nice to the policeman trying to help him get the guy calmed down. Terrible!
