Getting a police report written-up after a valet crashes your car is smart...

...though it may still not be enough to pressure the at-fault party into paying-up.

Television consumer reporters bring heat upon a business when they get involved. If you have a good valet parking fiasco story and aren't getting fair treatment, pitching your story to a local TV news station might be the way to go.
