The ratio of a******s to regular crazy people is growing at an alarming rate.
Sorry about your car.

You definitely need to get this and have it fixed.

I have leased cars (as have other people I know) and you need to return them in near perfect condition in order to get your deposit back and not lose out on fees. Scratches and dents can kill you.

That's how I learned...I practiced in our driveway between my dad's car and my sister's car. My sister was NOT pleased. I didn't hit anything though.

I also got a lot of driving lessons in the local cemetery. Dad said if I screwed up horribly, at least we'd already be at the perfect place.

Yeah, I was driving my dad's leased car, stopped in a left turn lane at a light, and some dumb blonde in a HUGE black thing apparently forgot the light was red and slammed into my dad's little civic. She tried to pass it off as "just a dent in the bumper", but I said no and made her hang up her stupid phone and call a cop.

The shitty part is though in MI we have no-fault insurance so if my dad didn't have connections in the insurance company he still would've had to pay the $500 deductible to have the dent fixed.

Ah, don't you love no-fault? When my car got wrecked last year...completely not my fault...the insurance company still wanted me to pay the $500 deductible, which would come out of the money they were giving me because the car was a total loss. We protested, and it did get dropped...but the fact that we even had to that is ridiculous.

I HATE no fault!! Don't even get me started! And I've never even had a car!!!

However, it did work to Phil's benefit once. He was pulling out of a parking spot and this van was coming, but it appeared to wait for us so he went, but then it decided to go. Honestly, we didn't even feel anything until the lady came up behind us and flagged us down. She said there was a tiny scrape of green paint on her white van. Phil handed over our info, but nothing came of it, assuming she didn't think it would be worth paying $500 to have a scrape covered up.

$500 bucks seems to be the common number... that's what i got on my estimate to fix the scratch.

I guess the law is different in Calif. If you get hit from behind, even if you were turning left from a right turn lane, the person hitting you from behind is at fault. I was at a stoplight once as well, and the light had turned green. I never had a chance to put my foot on the gas. The woman behind me in her SUV hit me. It must have cost a fortune to fix (not for us, but the insurance). We had a Toyota Camry Dlx rental car for 5 weeks while our car was being repaired.

I believe that is true as far as ticketing and traffic citations. The person rear-ending will always get the ticket and the penalties against them as far as their driving record. However for our insurance, "no fault" means each person's insurance company pays for their own car and you have to pay the $500 deductable.

Wow, that's shit.
In Germany, the insurance of the driver who is at fault pays for both cars.
We also have part fault and such, so when both drivers made a mistake it gets evaluated how much fault is to be given to either party, and then both insurances will cover part of the costs.
