That reminds me of an incident. Not as bad as what you're seeing, but still. Some neighbours who live not far behind us, their kids are having some kind of party. This was a number of years ago. It's kind of late at night. They (the kids) step out in the woods that are right behind our house and start raising hell. Screaming, laughing out loud, one girl especially. Like i said, it was late at night. I stepped out on our back deck with my 2nd daughter in tow. I shouted out at them telling to keep in down. One of the girls screamed back at me, basically to tell me to STFU. The girl was a friend of one of the neighbour's boy, and he tried to shush her up (he was a nice kid, really). When that girl screamed back at me, i turned to my daughter and said, "Don't you ever act like that when you grow up". She said she wouldn't. I believed her.

Hope you get better soon, Alexandra. {#Cheers}

 
 Well, thanks - I can certainly put up with the inconvenience of smoky conditions when others are having to flee for their lives and lose all their worldly belongings.

RD - possibly - sometimes even the best parents have kids that go rogue and make grave errors on their own

All because of a stupid kid.

I really hope consequences are swift and harsh. You just don't ignore RED FIRE WARNINGS because you want to have a little Labor Day fun, and endanger thousands of lives and blow through thousands of taxpayer dollars to fix your mess.

WHY THE HELL DOES a FIFTEEN YEAR OLD HAVE A MORTAR???
 
I couldn't find any news articles (fake or otherwise) to back up the story I've heard about who caused the latest wildfire in the Gorge, but it's burning up one of the most beautiful areas around here, and causing lots of trauma and evacuation of people...and over one hundred hikers had to spend the night in the forest because it stranded them. Totally senseless. I hope if it's true, the kid is severely fined, punished, and made to do weeks of community service.

I've been there (rear-ended on my motorcycle by a woman with no insurance) and the key to legal leverage is documenting. There is probably still plenty of time to swear out a complaint, but these things usually work best if you give the offender a chance to make it right. Don't impose unrealistic deadlines, recognize that (however careless it was) it wasn't malicious. Get the work done before you get final payment in case there's something the estimator missed or the insurance won't cover.

But above all be ready to let it go. If the guy can't pay he won't, and no amount of legal action will get blood out of a stone. And if he can but is just a dick about it he can drag his feet and make it cost you more to pursue than you'll ever get from him.

Don't obsess about it, don't get emotionally wrapped up in it, just be ready to let it go. The peace of mind/karma is worth more than the fender.

 
Sent him an email this morning asking if he was aware that his insurance wasn't current. Not gonna hold my breath on hearing back from him. If I do, I'll offer him the opportunity to do the right thing and reimburse our deductible, and then I won't hold my breath on that, either.

According to the state insurance commissioner 25% of drivers in this state are uninsured. Pretty sad state of affairs, but probably correlates to the poverty level in this state to some extent.

That is what you have uninsured or under insured coverage for.  Make your insurance company cover it under your uninsured coverage and they will go after the other driver to get reimbursed.  Shouldn't cost you a dime.  Depending on your state, the court should know that he is uninsured when he shows up for the citation and that will play out according to the laws of your state.  Restitution is usually a part of that.

Edit:  I see that I was wrong about uninsured coverage in your state.

What does Uninsured Motorist Coverage pay for?

UM pays you, resident members of your family, and occupants of your auto for personal injuries caused by an uninsured motorist, an underinsured motorist or a hit and run driver. It does not pay for damages to your car! If an uninsured motorist damages your car, repairs would be paid for under your Collision coverage. If you carry Liability only, there would be no insurance coverage available to repair your car.
 
my other half was rear-ended by a guy with no insurance

our coverage (geico) paid and they will seek recompense from him

she paid the deductible ($250 i think, i wasn't very involved in the process)

Fender-bender this morning on our commute. Guy claims the sun was in his eyes but I doubt it. More likely he was futzing with his phone. Cops called, report made, citation issued.

Charming! It turns out the guy who hit us let his insurance policy expire. The expiration date on his verification was December of this year, but apparently he didn't bother to pay the premiums. Guess I'll be going down to the station house with the letter of denial from his former insurance carrier and swearing out a complaint to have him cited for being uninsured. Also, I'll see him in small-claims court at some point to ask a judge to make him pay our deductible.

They need to tweek the state law so that if you're paying in 30-day increments (or quarterly or bi-annually) that the verification states that and the expiration date actually means something.
