My 9 year old was riding her bike yesterday and accidentally hit the neighbors parked car. She was honest about it and told the neighbor what happened. We were told not to worry about it and that the other kids in the neighborhood had also damaged her vehicle (but took off instead of telling the truth) so she would have the scratch fixed when she had the rest done. A few minutes ago she came over to tell me she is filing a police report. Now I'm worried. What could they do?Answer Question

You'd be surprised at what damage a bike can do. Anyway, I don't think you have anything to worry about. Just tell the cops what she told you and maybe you should take pictures of the car as well. I would only pay for the damage done by her as well. Never know how this could turn out so just take the pictures and make sure you get a copy of the police report as well.

Oh and FYI, just because they have insurance doesn't mean they have to claim it. A lot of time for silly stuff making a claim will make your rates go up.
