Had a rather unusual situation just now, a branded van from a well known fishmonger tried to do a u-turn in front of my house (happens regularly, people prefer to do it in front of my house because they're too lazy to go to the end of the cul de sac), hit my gatepost and took a decent sized gouge out of it.
I decided to go out for a look and before I even got near the gate he was shouting aggressively out the window that he didn't touch the gate. I pointed out the fresh gouge, and he got more irate and drove away, so i snapped a pic of his reg.
A few moments later he returned shouting expletives at the house and taking photos of the damage, so i went outside and told him to go away and leave us alone.
The damage is not terminal and will be less obvious with a lick of paint, but i was appalled at how he handled it. I initially thought about emailing the company, but actually I'm a but concerned that he knows where I live and given how he reacted, I don't really know what he is capable of doing.
I have a ring doorbell that annoyingly didn't capture the actual shunt, but did capture the unfolding of the conversation (for want of a better word).
What would you do? Complain and risk repercussions? Say nothing? I don't really want to involve police because quite frankly I think they have bigger things on their plate atm...
