Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Alex Watts :

Did you leave your reg number or anything on the car you damaged?


no I did not

Alex Watts :

I see. Sadly that is an offence, it is leaving the scene of an accident and failing to report it to the Police, which I assume you did not do

Alex Watts :

You are likely to face a fine and 5-6 points on your licence.

Alex Watts :

It is a legal requirement to give your details, even just leaving your reg and you must report to the accident.

Alex Watts :

I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
