    A perfect example of everything that is wrong with our justice system.

    In my world he'd have had his legs chopped off, and further denied access to disability benefits requested as a result of the amputation :D

    Tossers. I hate people.

    In my world he'd have been stripped and dragged behind the car down Oxford St on a Saturday!


    EDIT: £20k worth of damage and the twunt only has to pay £1,000!
    I'd demand the f**kers testicles too!

    Some piece of sh*t ran over our Alfa a few years back and caved the roof in. Unfortunately for him one of my mates was in the street and knocked the twat's teeth out literally. I used to have them until we moved house.

    It's the old "I can't afford it, so I'll trash it" mentality. I thought we'd left that behind in the 80s. Stupid arse.

    He probably told the judge that he was a religious man so he was given a lighter sentence. ;)

    I'd argue there are far bigger fish to fry in this world than an idiot who damages an expensive sports car.

    Wasn't the owner insured anyway?

    Bartelby, did your mate go to jail/prison for assault?

    The guy would have been insured but are you happy for your premiums to go up because of some piece of sh*t?

    And no, the other guy didn't report anything.

    I hope not.

    What was the guy minus teeth gonna do? Go to the police and complain that after having just run over someone else's car and caved in the roof they got smacked?

    To turn the situation around, I hope he gets run over by a Lamborghini Murciélago and gets huge dents on his head, which kill him.

    Or maybe the car goes so fast, it just slices him in half.

    I'm confused. Why wouldn't someone who was assaulted go to the police and report it? Why wouldn't someone whose car was damaged report that?

    As for Bartelby's question, I certainly wouldn't my insurance premiums to go up, although I don't really see how they would. I certainly wouldn't mind having seen this idiot get a bigger fine than he did.

    Did the person who ran over your car do it on purpose?

    Let's see:

    Twat runs over your car causing £20K of damage. Who's insurance are you going to end up claiming on?



    No the person accidentally climbed on the bonnet then on to the roof, jumped up and down on the roof and then climbed off.:rolleyes:

    Note to self: never buy a Lamborghini because they must be pretty flimsy if someone walking on top of it can cause £20K in damage.

    I'm not defending what the guy did at all... but I can't tell from that video how he did £20K worth of damage. It's not like he was jumping up and down on it.

    A roof on a car doesn't take a lot to totally knacker it. It's only a thin steel skin with no internal structural support. On my Alfa I just punched the roof back out from the inside. It left ripple marks in the corners which I could live with, I wouldn't live with it on a £150K+ car

    Oh, I thought you meant ran over with his car. I guess that doesn't make a lot of sense. :)

    Is this a popular activity in Britain? Strange country you've got over there! I thought you meant he hit it with his car. That's pretty different.

    Britain does seem to have a culture of petty crime and fist fighting though.

    Hopefully cell phones and the like will help on this front. Being able to take pictures of idiots doing things like this will hopefully make more of them get caught and punished. Probably what, 99% of the time people just cause damage and get away with it?

    It is a popular activity amongst the retarded. It usually involves the more expensive cars a street too.

    Mostly down to our actual culture, which is binge drinking. Vandalism is normally only practised by complete losers though, especially on something that obviously belongs to someone rather than a corporation.

    Our local Lamborghini is one of these, funnily enough in yellow too. It's parked outside Spearmint Rhino at least once a week. I'd like to see what the doormen would do to anyone that tried to run over that :D

    Indeed. We've got a serious problem with that in the US.

    Well, I'm glad this guy was punished at all. Hopefully more and more of these idiots will get caught and this sort of thing will decrease.
