    Put GPS on the car. take pictures of him, and mail him the pictures. That will really start to drive said driver nuts. Just pictures nothing else.

    Sugar in tank

    Or add some wheel weights

    You can also put a wedge in between door and body funnel a small hose in there and dispense a liquid of your choice in there. Milk is healthy :D

    And if you were really pissed off, in addition to the above, you might stick an icepick through the side of each tire as well. You know, just to be sure. :D

    I’d just pay the deductible and let the police and your insurance co. handle them going forward.

    Dump a gallon of milk down the vent below the windshield. It will rot and you'll never get it out of there.

    A drunk driver hit my friend and I while we were walking home from a bar one night. We were crossing in front of a driveway and the driver failed you yield. I rolled over the hood, my friend went under. The driver stopped, got out and asked me "Why the fuck didn't you stop?" I tended to my friend who was still half under the car and the driver disappeared. We got the police involved, but they needed me to identify the driver or else they could claim it wasn't them, so I had to do a photo line-up to identify the driver before charges could be filed.

    Doe in heat lure, in a syringe, through the door gasket and all over the interior.

    Well, whatever route you choose, at least you can now wear a mask, gloves, and full biohazard suit without attracting too much attention.

    Why actively search for more problems in your life?

    The problem is that if the other dude can fight, you may be fooked. :D

    Valve core remover and turn them partway out so you can't be charged for criminal vandalism. Too little for a hit and run though. Hit and run needs to involve a gas tank or a gas can. This one is best for unrepentent parking stall thieves. I got one after some Chinese lady stole my spot. Can't hit a bitch in public unfortunately.


    I like this guy.

    I've been through this twice in a no fault state. The only thing you can do is turn it into insurance and report to police which you already did. Police will probably do nothing that's how these things go in no fault states and as someone mentioned it's a misdemeanor. Hell in my city police don't even investigate hit and runs unless there is major injury or death. Not sure where you are but chances are police will not spend any time chasing this person down for this. Insurance companies do all the work, they will go after the driver and you will never know the outcome.

    If the damage is not enough to even claim because of the deductible and rate increase that will follow, then you're screwed and completely on your own for the repair. Sucks but that's how it goes.
  20. Yeah, the other stuff all sounds cool. But in reality, I wouldn’t have the patience or thought process to do any of it.

    It would be a face-to-face confrontation, closely followed by an uppercut-to-face confrontation.
