    I would say that if they are telling you that you need to pay for the repairs, than yes. It is however not going on your driving record if the police didn't respond.

    Let me go out on a limb. You said, "no damage", right? Who reported this and why? There is such a thing as being too honest.

    I go down the road and see painted on side of a tractor, "so and so, 5 million miles safe driver". I say to myself, "you ain't told everything"

    Is a parked chassis not a parked vehicle? I'd say yes

    You hit an object there driver. You ain't supposed to do that. I'm like the other guys, if the police weren't called and nobody saw it, better to keep your mouth shut. People really need to know when to talk and to stay quiet.
     
    ajax1337 and Grouch Thank this.

    You didnt exactly hit a deer that ran out of the bushes suddenly under its own power with no warning.

    Yes, but the distinction wouldn't matter anyway. You hit a stationary object.
