Consider replacing the mailbox with one like this. The carnage will end there and they won't drive off.

The "joy riding" is rampant here in Milwaukee. One of my fellow city inspectors was killed about two months ago when three teens who wanted his car for a fourth teen "accidentally" shot him. That's right, accidentally had the gun pointed at him, safety off and booger hook on the trigger. I believe that the parents of these teens should be held as accessories to the crimes their kids commit. Since all all of the teens were out on parole I would think the judges and DA's should be held responsible as well.

Man, that sucks! Too bad you couldn't catch them before the cops!!

Are your wheels messed up on the trailer?? I'll buy them if you're interested.

Idk it's a good thing or not, but I was thinking a big rock in the yard would look nice

Contact the ADA handling the case, go to court, demand restitution for any damage out of pocket, contact victim advocate of the court.

Yes, we were home and my oldest son who just got home from college was asleep in the bedroom three feet from where they came through the yard.

My bedroom is on the other side of the house and I heard it happen and got up in time to see the car plowing through the ditch on its way out of the yard.

Scott and his family live a couple of houses down from me and they are nice people. I have not met Art, but I have heard of him and his work from plenty of my neighbors. I am pretty sure he built our rip rap wall, but that was before we bought the place.

Homeowners insurance already said they won't cover the trailer. I do have it insured through Boat US though. Still, I am guessing I will still have to come up with at least $1500 to replace it. Damn!!!!!

I've been staying current on my federal income tax liability so the US Government has plenty of entitlement dollars to give to these kids, their parents and extended family. I'm sure they will all become productive citizens soon.

We are going to go after the kids and their parents, but I seriously doubt that that will do any good. At least we can try and get a judgement against them so that may follow them around. Not holding my breath!
Dunno. One morning last year when I went to take my son to school, there were 8 bullet holes in my windshield. High velocity pellet gun. I was one of 14 cars that got hit that Sunday night.

I submit the repair to the Po-Po.

Two months later I get a call from a lawyer. One of the punks had a rich Grandaddy and he stroked 14 checks. I got full restitution. Imagine that.

was the vehicle stolen from one of the kids parents?
Laws differ state to state .
The parents most likely can be held liable for your losses.

Yep, the OP should just make a demand, once those boys hear that there is a demand, they will be sure to pay up right that instant.

Trailer insurance adjuster came out today to take pictures for my claim. I am reasonably sure that you cannot fix the twisted frame and that they will total it.Plus, it would need at least one new axle, new brake and marker lights, right side fenders, guide posts and a tongue jack.

I have no clue what to expect here. I paid $3000 for it back in 2008 brand new, any idea how much I can expect towards a replacement?

I already ponied up $800 for the replacement fence parts and another $100 for the mail box and post. I was going to buy me a new Miller welder, but I guess that is out the window! Damn!!!
