my story is....

2 days ago I had just started to order my breakfast ,when a man came to me and said my jeep just hit his truck- complete shock to me and I thought no way that could happen. It was parked , in gear and e-break was on. Well as I stood there looking at the accident thinking this can't be real.. I had a !@#$- weekend and now I can't even order my breakfast.... the man who owns the truck my jeep hit said "my name is officer BLAH BLAH BLAH and I need to ask you a few questions" ... I almost lost it. I couldn't understand why this would happen. I gave the cop my info, he filed a report and advised me he would be in contact with me. So I was telling a friend what happened to me and trying to figure out what went wrong and he mentioned that a recall was sent out for the e-break on a jeep and to check it out well he was right but the recall was sent before I was the owner of this jeep. What do I do.. My insurance will go up if I claim it and I can't even afford the crap this guy sent me as an estimate for repair to his Truck? SO I am stuck sending in a claim now.. crappy I could understand if I was in the jeep or left it out of gear or something but I wasn't even in the car or near it when it happened...and I left the car the way you should... What would you do????

A recall is a recall - they're safety recalls. So you can still bring it into the dealership to have the work performed (along with any other open recalls.) Was it his private vehicle or a gov't vehicle? If it's a gov't vehicle, you might as well call your insurance so they're not blindsided because most likely the agency's risk management will be contacting your insurance. If it's his personal vehicle, see if he'll agree to get a couple of estimates in the event the one he went with is on the high side. What kind of damage was there on his vehicle?

It was the officers personal car, the damage was to the bumber and he had some rubber step pads in the back that may need to be replaced. The tail gate was bent some by the spare tire but not to bad. The problem we are facing is it could have damagd the reinforcment bar and rear impact absorber but that was not in the quote since they can not tell the damage with out removing the bumper. I think the cop is reporting it to his insurance which makes me have to report to mine.. I wonder if every registered owner would have been sent a letter of recall when the car was registered again and it was never fixed. I'm sure they have to have a list of what vin # was fixed so wouldn't the new registered owner get some type of a second notice to get replaced?

There was an outstanding recall on my old truck when I bought it. About 6 months after I bought it, I started getting the notice and I kept getting them until I took it in for the work (it was minor, so I wasn't too stressed about getting it done.) Some states (CA is one of them) won't let you register it if there are certain recalls outstanding. Not sure where you are though or if your state does that. You can look up recalls here.

Go ahead and report it. Its not a moving violation.. Your rates probably wont go up... But either way.. Thats what insurance is for.. Let them do their job...

So he was to close and you got the ticket? Maybe his department has a policy to charge on duty police with traffic violations they make and he didn't want another ticket. Or he didn't want to tell his boss he screwed up.

Depends where you are - most agencies have an outside dept investigate accidents involving on-duty vehicles to prevent an improprieties. And if you rolled backward when you were supposed to be moving forward, you're at fault. Wink

on a not really related similar subject.. A buddy of mine in a baton Rouge Louisiana police officer (heretofore called "the peoples")

So... "the Peoples" was driving down the road last night trying to pass the last 45 minutes of his shift and maybe get home on time.., when all of a sudden a Suburban starts tailgating him.. He is hoping for an uneventfull rest of shift so he turns right, into a parking lot .

The suburban pulls right up on his butt..

This driver of the suburban(heretofore refered to as "the Douche") then proceeds to jump out of his car holding a piece of paper...

The paper was his reserve commision and "the douche" actually thought he was making a traffic stop on a uniformed officer in a marked police car.. "The Douche" even had the duty officer of the department he is a reserve for on the phone trying to explain what he was doing...

Apparently "the douche" was Pacing the Unit said "the peoples" was speeding.


The duty officer on the phone spoke to "the peoples" for a minute ............ And next thing you know............

"The douche" is in cuffs in the back of the unit.. And "the peoples" is not happy.. He now not only not get off on time but "the Peoples" has to process "the douche" because "the douche" was driving drunk......rofl rofl

"The Peoples" came over to the shop today he was still mad.... rofl

*The Peoples and the Douche are not real names...*

Moral of this story...
If you are driving around Baton Rouge and you see this unit..

you might not want to pull him over he wont think its funny......

(I blurred the unit number off his car just incase someone decides to try...)


I now return you to your regularly scheduled thread...
