So a few months ago I went to visit a mate in northern italy with my gf's car. literally 5 minutes after arriving at his place, and looking for a place to park permanently for the weekend, some bloke drove into the back of me. I had stopped behind a 4x4 who stopped to let somebody out of a parking spot. the impact was hard enough to propel us into the car in front, who suffered no damage, or didn't care. he drove off. our car however was fecked on all sides. the bloke who did it was italian carabinieri, he tried to fob me off with cash in hand. got the police involved and took pictures, wrote a report, got his stuff etc etc. fecked off, could drive home with the car as no mechanical damage, but repairing the body work on all sides costs more than the car is worth. problem is we've been waiting for months now. now after months we've finally discovered that his car isn't insured with the insurance specified. our mechanic (who's italian himself) will be trying to get hold of the bloke this afternoon. if he can't. any ideas what I could do? we're based in switzerland btw, want to be moving to the UK in a few months time though and want to get this over with. my gf seems to be happy to let it drop the silly bint! I'll drive down again and knock on Alessio Bertini's fecking door before I'll drop this!
