Drunk guys in a dealer benz dented my hood...

So I can't sleep due to the anger running through my body right now.

I was out with my cousin, and heading home he wants to go to McDonalds..and the closest one is at Dufferin and Dupont (bad idea).

Waiting to get the food in the drive though, three idiot kids in a dealer benz get out of the car, and claim I am harassing them with my BMW...slurring all the way (drunk beyond belief, I could hardly understand what they were saying), they want to fight, but they don't let me out of the car.

I tell them I have no clue what they are talking about, and that they are drunk and should go home. One guy decides to ram his fist on the hood of my car. At this point I call the cops...i want to get out of the car, but my friend tells me not to...probably could not have taken all three of them.


Then security comes, and screams at me to get out of the line (WTF)...and the fukin kids get in the car and run off.

The cops show up 30 minutes later 5 squad cars...but way too late. They apologized, telling me they just got the call because the dispatch person sent the call out to the wrong district

Anyhow, I got a dent on my hood (I guess ill see tomorrow if its any worse)...and the police say its unlikely that anything will happen since its a dealer plate, and harder to find who was driving at the time....and since 30 minutes has passed, they can't find them.

So yeah, Happy New Years to me.....

Anyone know how to track what dealer owns what plates?

LICENSE PLATE WAS: 986 OLA Black benz, C240 (I think), 4 door.

Looked to be four Portuguese kids, 3 male, 1 female. 1 male had a tattoo across his chest. Probably 20 to 24 years old.

Anyone know if insurance covers damage like this? I have a police file number since they came and took all the info down.

Does not look like they will catch this kid, so ill be paying it out of my own pocket. I assume I cant pop out a dent on a hood?!

Its not the end of the world, but it definitely has me pissed off.

Isn't it still the responsibility of the owner of the plate to know who was driving their car? The cops should be able to at least have a word with the dealership and get some answers -- that's unacceptable

Too bad man

The cop told me that the filed report would go to an investigator...but the investigator could only go to the dealership and inquire who had the car that night...but would have no proof other than my word against theirs. And the person driving was not the person who dented my hood, so its even more complicated...who was the friend? can you prove it? etc etc.

If it was a private plate, the cops would have headed for the owners home and either find the car and the drunken driver, or talk to the parents, and take the kid in for questioning when he arrived home.

So it seems, you can get away with this kind of crap in a dealer plated car. Harder to track in the moment something like this happens.

If the dispatcher had done her job right, the cops would have made it on the scene before the kids had left, and they would have been booked for drunk driving, damaging personal property, etc.

It really sucks because when the cops rolled in, they had received the call under a minute before they arrived....and when I told them i called half an hour ago, they looked into their system and noticed the dispatchers initial mistake.

Dent doctor or equivalent can remove the dent without a trace it was there. probably cost about 100.00

Re: the the kids and dealer plate: it was most likely a used lot as dealerships don't tolerate that sort of behavior and is usually dealt with charges and immediate dismissal. Ligit dealers usually screen employees, although, who knows...anything is possible. If they dig deep enough they can find out who was driving the car. Plates are limited in quantity and cost $$$ to have so it is registered no doubt. if it came down to the charges being laid to the dealer, they would rat out who was driving as they don't want any bad reprecautions.

I looked up a few "dent doctor" shops, and will sort this out on Tuesday to get it fixed.

I hope whoever is on this case will go to the dealership and pressures them to reveal who had the car. Doubtful, but you never know.

I work for MB, pretty sure that dealer plate does not belong to any MB dealership in the GTA, like Ceeker said it most likely came from a used car lot, I won't be able to find out till tuesday to be 100% sure, if it does belong to a MB dealership I'll get that punk fired for sure.

Thanks man! I appreciate you looking into this.

I think you guys might be right, I didn't think about it until you mentioned it, but the fact that it may be from some shitty used car dealership is quite plausible.

i see a lot of cars in bad neighborhoods driving with dealer plates...

you think they steal dealerplates to drive around in them because they are less likely to get pulled over?
or they are a car jockey at a used car dealer and just take it for themselves after work..

insurance does cover damages like that but you gotta pay your deductible... not worth paying it since the deductible is usually a lot more then what you'd pay to fix the dent you got.

If the emphasis here was to report drunk driving and not the damage of your hood
I bet the cop will put out a broadcast on a black mercedes benz with dealer plate
and I am prettty sure the car would have been found and stop.

Anyway.. sorry of your misfortune.. I would be pissed too...

The first thing I told the dispatcher is that they are drunk and driving, but because they were 30 minutes late, they couldn't track them down right then and there.

It was pretty surreal though, five cruisers came in all together from different entry points, and they wanted to know which was the car went...but I told them the call was 30 minutes ago, and they are long gone now....cops looked bummed out about the news and told me they hated the fact that the dispatcher screwed up, and that there is nothing they like more than taking down drunk drivers.
