Chances are there is nothing that can be done in civil court regarding a hit and run. People that leave the scene of the accident are either:

A. Intoxicated
B. No insurance
C. Have existing warrants for their arrest
D. Are in country illegally
E. Have contraband in the vehicle
F. Both A and B
G. All of the above

Chances are good they are renting or living with someone and therefore have no property and probably no job. The only way these incidents work out is a claim being filed against the injured party's insurance company.

That's why it is a wise move to have uninsured motorist protection on your vehicles, should you find yourself involved in a hit a run or similar incident where the driver is uninsured.

Not so. I wasn't anywhere near that guy! I've been here all day and I've got the sunburn to prove it!

I know for a fact that if I took time off work, not only would I not be paid, but my boss would verbally abuse me, smack me in the mouth, and would get away with it.

That's because Aussies are tough mofos. They get hit by cars and say, "well, that wasn't anything compared to the bar fight last night."

In civilized countries, like Canada, you get the day off work after getting hit by a car.

Well, in truth, it's because I'm self employed.

But we do go to work when we are sick - most jobs here allow a sick day every 6 weeks and if you are not away from work more than a day you do not need a doctors certificate. Why would you waste that opportunity? We go to work, suffer through our illness or injury and save sick days for parties or long weekends away.

As for Matthew, I'm sorry - but I just lose it when I'm driving through town and I see a grown man in a beanie, especially if he looks like he works for a bank.

Omg why should calling the police and going to the hospital be such an issue? Any normal thinking person would do both those things. If the job didn't like it the person would tell the boss F.U. I'm going anyway.

This can't be a serious thread at least I hope not.
