What to Do if Someone Throws Eggs at Your Car?

Get away from the area as quickly as possible. You don’t want to be near the scene of the crime when it happens, and you definitely don’t want to make eye contact with the person who did this to you.

If you’re able to take photos before leaving the scene, do so. These photos will be helpful in both getting your car repaired and filing a police report.

If someone throws eggs at your car, it’s always best to get it cleaned up as soon as possible but if that’s not feasible right away, here are some steps you can take.

Clean up any excess egg white with paper towels or a cloth. Don’t use anything abrasive like sandpaper or steel wool it will scratch the surface of your paint job and make things worse!

If there are any eggshells in the paintwork, use tweezers or an old toothbrush to remove them without scratching anything else further into the paint job. You may need to repeat this step multiple times until all of.

The person

Find out if the person who threw the eggs is still around. If so, try to get their name, address, and phone number.

Call the police

Call the police and file a report, even if you don’t think they can do anything about it. If you know who did it and you’re not sure if they’ll do it again, give them a heads up that they should be careful if they don’t know what happened to your car, they might throw eggs at someone else’s car in the future.

license plate number

Make sure that you have all the relevant information about your car, including the license plate number and make/model/color, if possible

Clean up the egg

Do not try to clean up the egg on your own—it’s likely that there will be yolk and shell in it, which can scratch your paint or leave residue on your windshield that will need to be professionally cleaned off

Contact your insurance company

Repainting or washing your vehicle. Replacing damaged windows. Replacing any broken or cracked glass. The best thing about contacting your insurance company is that you won’t have to pay for anything out of pocket.

If you don’t have insurance, you may want to consider getting some before the next time someone throws eggs at your car.

Get an estimate for repairs

If you have to get your car repaired after someone throws eggs at it, you’ll want to know how much it will cost before you go through with the repairs. This is especially true if you are not covered by insurance.

If you do not have insurance on your car, then the damage caused by the egg thrower could be costly.

If you are hit with eggs, do not get out of your car?

The first thing that happens is that the egg hits your car and breaks in half. The second thing that happens is that it splatters all over your windshield and windows.

The third thing that happens is that you get out of your car to clean up the mess, but then another egg flies through the air and hits you in the face.


The most important thing you can do if someone throws eggs at your car is to make sure that the eggs don’t get inside the car. If they do, you’ll have to wash the egg off your car and soak the seats with vinegar to kill any salmonella bacteria.

If you can’t get all of the eggs off, bring your car to a professional detailer as soon as possible. They’ll be able to thoroughly clean it so that it looks like new again.
