I dunno why some are skeptical, I kinda envision it as, "Hey Rick, someone hit my car." "I'll scan the video to see when it happened. Here it is, it's NY registration M3LOVR4EVR, looks like it's a dark blue BMW."
"Thanks Rick, that belongs to that hot shot managing director on the 6th floor. He can kiss his 250k bonus this Christmas goodbye."
