My mom accidentally did that once. She left an apology not and insurance information on the windshield.
Though I guess it really depends on who owns the car...

Depends on what you define by scratch. T-boning a car at full throttle is NOT a scratch, Ry :|

Huh, that's funny. Somebody backed into my mum's car the other day, banging up the front a fair bit, and drove off without leaving any details...

... Ry...? Do you have something to say...?

I don't drive. But I once bumped a bit into a car when I opened the door. And I tried to look and saw no scratch on the other car. And the woman in the next car got really angry and I tried to blame it on my mother, when I clearly told her that it was me and not her. But that lady still insisted that it was my mom and pointed fingers at her and lied how she saw my mother doing it and all...
And after all this, there was no mark or anything from it.
Apparently she thought we was the most "rudest" people she had ever met in her life and all too, gees apparently apologizing is "rude" now a days.

It depends on the situation. Last week, a very crappy van was parked next to me, and because the spaces are close, I had to watch out not to scratch their car more. But since it was already scratched to hell, even if I did scratch it, I probably would've driven off. I would've felt bad about it, but hey, it was already scratched to hell. What's one more?

And your last choice works too: They shouldn't park in tight spaces if they didn't want to scratch it more. If you want to protect your paint, you better park in the middle of nowhere or get a covering.

Heh. One time I was at McDonald's with my friend because they had Starwars toys in the Happy Meals and I wanted one. We got in my car to leave with our food. There was an ambulance parked right next to me. Evidently EMTs like getting McDonald's on their lunch breaks. Anyway, I went to back out of the parking spot and completely misjudged how long this ambulance was. I ended up clipping the back of it with my car. My friend and I just stopped and looked at each other and then she shouted "DRIVE DRIVE DRIVE!" So I peeled out of the McDonald's parking lot and into the next one over, my friend got out and made sure the front of my car was good, and we left.

I've also "door dinged" cars multiple times when getting in and out of my sister's car, but she just yells at me to leave it. So...what can we really conclude here? XD

I've had this happen to me, some butt plug hit the back of my car, & left it like that, all dented & scratched, tail light cracked, & the bumper all knocked out of shape ]: (
I was a uni student at the time & didn't have the money to fix it :< I still get shitty thinking about it...
In the reverse situation I would leave a note, I consider it dishonest, & pretty weak not to own up, & try to make it right.

Leaving a note is pretty much just as bad as not leaving anything, IF the person decides to sue you. At least if you get sued in Germany.

Just so you know.

This is why I park really far away at the spots furthest from the buildings at parking lots. If no one tries to park near me, my car has less of a chance to be hit. My car has already gotten a few scrapes and dents from careless drivers. And to no surprise, no one even leaves a "sorry" note. I know shit happens & everyone makes mistakes, but it doesn't make it acceptable to run away instead of making things right.

The poll results are sad, but entirely expected...

I can't drive...Let me adjust..I'm not allowed to drive..I can drive a stick,so obviously I can drive(doing a bit of bloating).
I had once stolen a car..don't worry..I had hostages.And also I had witnesses.

Okay I strayed of topic here.I haven't actually driven on proper paved road yet,but point being.If that ever happen to me(scratching a car) I would drive away..return later with a letter made out of cut out magazines(you know the type made in kidnappings and stuff)and it would say-I'm sorry-and walk away like i'm a civilian I am to my car parked around the corner.

it depedes on how much of a scratch there was, if it's not notacable unless your looking for it and know were to look then no if it is natacabule then-
hay whaght a sic. I don't drive, so why do I care?
then again maybe I should leave a note on a car that I did'nt scratch with a bogiss phone number, (like Sony HQ, lol)

Before i leave a note with my details, i drive away (in fact that there is no sign for a bump) or i wait. Leaving a note is quite naive. Many people would demolish there own car to get more money... otherwise, i only would leave a note when i photograph the other cars injuries and mines... as proof.

"Leave your details on a note, its the right thing to do" or I'd wait. Some one dented my mother's car and just took off once, not fun finding it after coming back to the car with no one around. Any one who would do other wise I don't think much of their character. Might seem like a little thing but someone who can do that probably is only going to get worse. Hope I have never have to talk to some one like that much, or have to rely on them for anything. They'll skew me over at some point.

That's some really good advice for everyone out there... it doesn't matter if the person driving the car seems really nice you should get photo's because you never know if they might have a crazy lawyered up partner/parent/friend who'll exaggerate the damages to make a crazy claim.

depends if it was like a scuff of dirt that could literally be wiped off or actual damage even if it doesn't take any paint off i'd probably leave a note because i believe in good karma okay

also it depends on how much the car looks cared for

idk

still good karma yes <3
