    Tracing a plate

    Almost a month ago, some drunk kid swiped the side of my car. It wasn't gigantic, so i just exchanged numbers. I asked for his registration and insurance info and stuff, but he said he didn't have it cuz it was his girlfriend's car. So I just grabbed the plate number and told him I'd call him back with an estimate. I've tried to get in touch with him for the past 2 days and I guess he's avoiding my calls. Is there any way I can find the owner's info using the plates, without having to pay some fee or getting the police involved?

    AFAIK only the Police and Insurance companies have that information available to them.

    If your car is mobile, move it out of the way of traffic, call the police, and wait to get a report. You will get screwed if you just exchange information.
