A motorist revealed her shock when she discovered a note left on her windshield by another driver apologizing for hitting her car, but without leaving her contact details.
The incident happened in Croydon, east Melbourne, on Friday morning. The woman had parked her car opposite the Blackworth Cafe while she had coffee.
She found the note when she returned.
“Sorry, I hit your car, I can’t afford the repairs,” he said.
Wanting to find the identity of the other driver, the woman took to a local Facebook group to explain the situation.
“I noticed this cute note they left on my windshield while I was driving home,” she said in a Facebook post.
“Unfortunately the cafes/shops along there don’t have cameras, but there were a few sitting outside having breakfast who could have seen the person putting a note on my car.
“If anyone has seen this happen and was able to get details of the person’s car etc, I would really appreciate it if you messaged me!”
She also speculated that the person only left the note because people were watching.
Other Facebook users criticized the act.
“Shameful. Can’t afford it? Shouldn’t be driving. Good luck getting your money from that human paraquat,” one local wrote.
“People are going through hard times, but should always be able to be held accountable for their mistakes. What a disappointment,” another commented.
“That’s a real dog number,” said another.
