Jul. 22nd, 2005 @ 07:32 pm Stupid drivers
Driving home again, looking forward to just goofing off at home and the line, when just before the offramp to Leesburg Pike to get home, some idiot decides that he wants to switch into my lane. This leads to a nice 3 foot long fash into my left paneling, some nasty scratches on my side view mirrors, and a bigass scratch on my rear wheel well trim. And the best part of it is, the driver at fault decided to attempt to drive off. Luckly he was driving a crappy car, and I managed to get my car up to 110mph to chase him down and grab his license place number. You'd think with such a small car I'd avoid being hit, but apparently people see me as a target on the roads...

VA Plate: JDT2826 you are on my shit list. And you'll be happy when you feel a hit and run charge.

Still... I guess this means more dealings with insurance people. Ugh.

Your poor mini. Tell me you got the police in on this already?

Honestly, I think people hit minis for the same reason they run into motorcycles and pull out in front of buses. They have it in their mind to look for cars and trucks. They honestly don't even see things that don't fit into what they are expecting to see.

But then....you know....some people are just dumb asses.

Hunt the bastard down and get him charged. And get him to pay for repairs.

I'm amazed either how much of a crash-magnet you are (it's never your fault, I've noticed) or how lucky I've been with my insane amount of time on the road.

Seconded. Good thinking getting the license plate before he zoomed off entirely.

Sad thing is, I see all the cars and trucks and motorcycles, but buses and large vehicles and some with trailers seem to pop out of nowhere. I ran someone off the road cause they came outta nowhere, even after I looked all around me.

I can't understand why so many people have it in for your car. Truly awesome that you chased him down, though =]
