On Friday, April 18, a week before Anzac Day, my daughter’s dark blue car was parked on Blockhouse Bay Rd, facing the city just short of the bus stop near Matata St.
When she returned to her car she was shocked to see someone had sideswiped it, causing more than $800 in damage. She couldn’t even open the driver’s door.
In tears, she came home and blurted out: “Someone has hit my car and hasn’t even left a note.”
We suspect it was a bus pulling into the bus stop to pick up or drop off passengers.
Inquiries have not identifi a driver reporting hitting a parked car.
Why should they get a black mark against their record?
It’s not as if they would have to pay out of their own pocket.
My 19-year-old daughter has not got a spare $800.
She does have third party insurance to protect other people’s cars but not her own in this case.
We would be very grateful if any morally obliged person who saw or knows anything about this incident would call us on 817-9796.
