My dad was driving through a nearby town coming upto a mini-roundabout. A car was coming the opposite direction but my dad started to cross the roundabout first, going straight on. This other guy drove over the roundabout & hit him side on.
My dad was pretty shook up but also angry especially when this guy jumped out of his taxi & started saying "don't you know how to drive" my dad flagged a police car down which was just a panda car & they just told them to swap details & be on their way. When they left a group of people gathered round & started saying they had seen everything & it was my dad's fault. They obviously knew the other driver, who I suspect does this all the time.
Anyway my dads insurance co have quoted £1700 to repair a £2000 valued car! Is there anyway he can refuse this steep price? Also is there anything he can do to stop this guy from doing this to other people?
