How To Damage A Car Revenge
When someone wrongs you, it’s only natural to want revenge.
If something happens to you or your loved ones, you may feel like taking matters into your own hands. This is totally okay!
However, there are some situations where seeking revenge can backfire and hurt you more than help. And trying to take revenge in the form of violence is always counterproductive.
With that being said, here are eight ways to damage a car for revenge.
1) Break down the vehicle
Breaking down cars is pretty common, but doing so with malice towards one person often goes beyond breaking down the car.
Crashing a car into another car, truck, or heavy object many times leads to charges of vehicular homicide or manslaughter.
For example, if someone drove aggressively towards you then crashed their car into yours, they could be charged with murder due to excessive speed or failure to avoid an accident.
2) Take up space by pulling out items
Not bringing along enough room to travel can lead to having to push or pull your car through crowded areas or onto limited parking spaces.
If this applies to you then try to find alternate routes or use public transportation instead. It will cost less money!
3) Throw away unused materials
Throwing away things after using them usually does not sit well. If you work in a professional field then chances are you have left over supplies or tools.
Take photos of the damage
The next thing you should do is take some close-up pictures of the damaged area. This could be done with your phone or using a more professional camera!
It’s important to take as many pictures as possible, but don’t overdo it. You want to get just enough detail to show what happened, but not so much that you look like a crazy person.
After taking all the necessary photos, make sure to also document any property that was lost in the accident. These can include cars, phones, bags, etc.
Don’t forget to ask permission before uploading the photos onto social media sites, writing down their e-mail addresses for later. That way if they do request that you remove them, you have already uploaded them somewhere else.
Find the person who damaged your car
The first thing you should do after any kind of damage is find out who did it. You will probably know this person, or at least someone connected with them!
There are several ways to gather this information. You can talk to people around them, ask if they saw anything, or simply search for pictures and videos of them online.
It’s also important to note that even if you don’t see anyone around them during the incident, it’s still possible to track down their identity through CCTV footage or vehicle registrations.
Keep your car in good condition
It’s one thing if you leave your vehicle with a close friend or family member, but it is another when you let someone who doesn’t know you well take care of your car.
If you are ever forced to abandon your car, make sure that you don’t do anything rash like breaking into the car or throwing objects at it. These things can hurt others and even yourself.
Instead, try not leaving too much personal information in the car. If possible, write down some important numbers such as the name of the person you left the car with and their address so that they can get a new license plate and find out what insurance company they have.
Also, tell them how to contact you directly! This way, they will know where to look for you if something happens.
Be careful about how many people you trust with your car. You should probably never trust anyone other than your parents with your car. They’ll know better than most how dangerous having an open accessory like a gun could be.
Take your car to the repair shop as soon as possible
The longer you wait, the worse it will get for your perpetrator. If they are still driving around their target, they likely have not made plans yet about how they’ll hurt or destroy their enemy’s vehicle.
If you happen across them while they’re trying to find an empty lot or parking spot somewhere, make sure that they do not escape before authorities can talk to them.
Furthermore, if they do try to flee, call 911 and describe their location so officers can be there quickly.
In addition to those dangers, waiting could give their accomplice time to back out and avoid responsibility.
Do not try to pay to have the damage repaired
The next thing you should probably know is that it’s totally okay to feel angry, hurt or even livid about someone else’s actions.
But there’s a big difference between feeling these things for just a little bit and going into overdrive because you are so enraged of what happened.
If you find yourself in either situation, remember that revenge will only make your problems worse!
Revenge can sometimes seem like a good option, but trying to get back at someone by hurting their loved ones or destroying their property is usually not a very smart idea.
It could easily push them further away, which would be much more painful than if they were already distant. Plus, some people just don’t deserve any form of retribution no matter how bad they made you feel.
So before taking any action, give yourself a few days to cool off and see whether your feelings subside. If they do, then great, you’re all set! But if not, try talking to other people, doing something different, thinking about something different – anything to take your mind off it for a while.

Report the damage to the police
When you cause major damage to another person or business’s property, it is very important to report this to the police. If you are driving away and realize that your vehicle was vandalized, do not hesitate to pull over immediately!
Calling the authorities can help prevent repeat offenders from damaging more property or hurting other people in the future. Since most insurance companies require proof of vandalism before they will pay for repairs, documenting these instances helps ensure you get reimbursed.
It also raises awareness about car crime, which may scare potential vandals away. Unfortunately, due to the cost of fixing or replacing a vehicle, some individuals may feel as though doing minor things like graffitiing a car is worth the money needed to purchase a new one.
By calling the police, this discourages others who might want to be petty thieves. In fact, many times officers will offer free rides home for those who volunteer to come back and give statements.
Take down the license plate number of the car that damaged your car
Even if you do not know who did it, taking down their vehicle’s licence plate number is still an important first step in seeking revenge. This can be done by either going to the police or looking up the information yourself online.
Keep your insurance up to date
It is very important to make sure that you are keeping your car insurance up to date, because if you don’t, then malicious individuals will use this as evidence of poor coverage.
Many people believe that getting new liability or collision cover can be used as an argument in their favor when they have been involved in an accident. But, what most don’t realize is that using previous policies as proof of inadequate coverage can actually work in the other person’s favor!
This is called “policy lapse defense.” A lot of times, victims find themselves accused of something like reckless driving or hit-and-run due to negligence on their part. If this happens, then it is essential for your lawyer to prove that your policy had expired at the time of the incident.
Also, making certain that your vehicle is not covered by any type of third party insurance (like worker’s comp., etc.) could also play a factor in avoiding legal action.
By being aware of how recent cars are protected under the law, you can do everything possible to prevent yourself from going through a costly ordeal.
