Desperate to discover the identify of the driver, the woman reached out to locals in a community Facebook page.

‘I noticed this lovely note they left on my windscreen while I was driving home,’ she said in a post.

‘Unfortunately the cafe/shops along there don’t have any cameras, but there were a few sitting outside having breakfast that might have seen the person put a note on my car.

‘If anyone saw this happen and was able to get any details of the persons car etc. I would really appreciate you messaging me!’

Many including the driver herself speculated the other motorist only left a note because people were watching.

Many online users slammed the driver for failing to leave their details after smashing into the woman's car

‘Disgraceful. Can’t afford this? Shouldn’t be driving. Best of luck getting your cash from this human paraquat,’ one person wrote on the post.

‘People fall on hard times, but should still be able to be accountable for their mistakes. How disappointing,’ another commented.

A third user said: ‘Left note to cover themselves in case anyone was watching.’

One user even called the decision to only leave an apology note on the windscreen 'a real dog act'

‘That’s a real dog act,’ another man said.

The woman said it was likely they only wrote the note ‘because people were around and probably assumed they were leaving their details’.

‘I’ve had a couple of people tell me there are CCTV cameras in the street, so again I’ll see what I can get,’ she said.
