the police can only take your car if you have a violation. they can't take your car without any violation even if it doesn't have any insurance.

What country are you in?

In Britain no tax or no insurance means points on your licence if driving and even if parked means towed away with heavy fine, storage fees and if not sorted in 14 days the car is crushed.

If someone hits your parked car who pays?

If you are legally parked there is no question that the other driver is at fault. Your parked vehicle has not chance of avoiding the accident. Only the driver who hits your car while it is parked could avoid the situation. Now the problem comes in when they leave the scene of the accident. Immediately call the police without moving your vehicle. Search for witnesses and report it to the owner of the parking lot as well if you can identify them. Make sure a police report is made. If you have uninsured motorists coverage the UM will pay for your damage just as if the other party had coverage except you will have a small deductible depending on what you purchased on your policy. If the other party is caught, and the funds are recovered by your insurance company they will refund your deductible to you even if it takes years. If they had insurance it will be quick, if not it may take a while. If the person who hits you has insurance your UM does not get involved.

If someone hits your parked car and you call your insurance will your rates go up or will their insurance take care of everything?

If your car is parked and someone hits it, your rates should not go up. The other car's insurance company should take care of everything, even if you have the same insurance company. You are entitled to have your vehicle repaired following an accident that was caused by someone else.

Hit and run parked car plus no witnesses?

If it's your car that got hit, you should still make a report to the police. (You never know, they may find the person that hit you). Insurance will still take the claim, but it may take more time to process, and you'll have to have the appropriate insurance. If you hit the car, you should leave a note with your contact info and insurance info so the owner can get back to you.
