    Nup. Hit and run.

    Must have been a 4wd to get that high though. I am going to ask for the video footage from the shop it was parked infront of. With luck I might be able to see who got me.

    Jesus christ. You poor bastard, that's just not cool.

    Apparently several vehicles have been totalled near my work over the last few years. I work in the docklands, and there's free parking down on Appleton Dock Road, which leads straight from one of the docks onto the main highway. Anyway, flatbed semis with large freight containers come flying down Appleton at break-neck speeds, two-abreast, at 4am in the thick fog, not a care in the world... sometimes they snag the end of car that's parked a little out from the kerb. Truckies don't even notice, and don't care. Come back out after work and find your quater-panel half a yard down the road.

    I pay $5 a night to park in a security-surveyed carpark on the other side of the main drag. Ends up costing over a grand a year, but at least we have that option for the peace of mind that comes with it. I hate parking on the street outside my flats, 'cause you never know what's going to happen in the dead of the night. Not much theft in the area, but street drags and drifting down the backstreets have seen more than a couple of cars nailed up the arse sitting helpless on the side of the roads in the morning. Victims of local idiots. (I live in Box Hill. rice-town.)

    I was told by a shop owner that there was a delivery truck there that day so that is probably the culprit. I am still trying to find out who took deliveries that day to hopefully get the name of the company.

    I myself am a victim and it sucks ass. Some 4wd mother or some clueless idiot in a 4wd decided to back their rear bar up and over my bonnet a while ago, and they drove away aswell..

    i hate it when ppl drive 4wd's just for the sake of driving a 4wd, other than that i really like 4wd's and theyre tonnes of fun off road and i love driving them, its just here in the city, ppl have brand new shiny as nething 4wd's that the owners wouldnt take anywhere near a dirt road, and they drive them around the middle of the city like theyre in a car, coz they dont no how 2 drive them properly
