During our stay in Italy in September we were hit by a man on his Vespa - it was entirely his fault (no one was hurt) and he ran away from the scene of the accident, luckily we were about to turn into a private car park so there were cctv cameras that recorded everything and we were able to get his reg plate number which we gave to the hire car company, we have just been notified that they have tracked him down and he has no insurance, never has had........we are £495.00p out of pocket............damn! xx

We would have to pursue it through the Italian courts as he has no insurance to represent him........need I say more? xx

No wonder the rat bastard ran away! Over here, if you use a credit card to rent a car the credit card company often adds free insurance. Does yours?

L I don't know! I am going to look into that now, but as I just commented to Moonlustie it would all have to be done through the Italian courts and I have been dealing with the Italians for almost 40 years, nothing happens till they have had their plate of pasta and nap..........AND this is Naples so you can multiply the frustration by 10000000000 xxxx
We had a basic insurance that I took our with the car rental but as he has none at all it gets very complicated over there, I am off to phone the c/c mastercard and see what they say xx

The world, my Love, is on its ear. My next door neighbor was stopped at a light, with a pickup truck in front of him, & a black & white next to him, when another driver behind them went into insulin shock & plowed, full speed, into my friend's car. Totaled, & he still owes $9k on it.
The insurance companies (both) are siding with the diabetic! They excuse the accident because of his medical condition (even though this is the third incident), & my friend is left hanging, seriously injured, & no way out but to declare bankruptcy.
WTF is wrong with this picture???
So I sympathize. Such a bitch when people get away with such nonsense. They should be accountable, completely.

That's such a frustrating story! Do we now have to start insuring ourselves against diabetics etc? insane! Hope you neighbour recovers physically if not financially. xxx
