Bad drivers piss me off

Postby 87e30 » Fri Feb 19, 2016 2:03 pm

Bad drivers keep me busy towing their cars 12-16 hours a day already. This morning on my way to work I had a literal run-in with another one of them. Lady wasn't paying attention to the road and drifted onto my side taking out both of our drivers side mirrors. Broken glass fragments all over the inside of my car now. So I turned around to go back to where she had pulled over, and she turned around and drove right past me. I had to turn around again and follow her. She drove up 2 blocks and saw police lights ahead of her so she made a quick illegal u-turn in the middle of the street to try going back the other direction, still ignoring me. I had to block her car and start yelling at her. I told her to turn around again and drive up to where she saw the police, but instead she parked her car and tried to walk away. I remained calm, yet very forceful, and ordered her to get back in her car and drive to the police. She acted like she didn't know where they were and said she would follow me. Hellz naw, I ain't fallin for that one. Finally I got her to drive up to the cop and she wouldn't shut her damn mouth the entire time. I told the cop if she bought me a new mirror I would be satisfied, and he had almost convinced her to do it, but then she wanted ME to pay for hers if she paid for mine. OMG I hate people like that. Hit and run, avoiding police, she even said she "might have been too far over" to my side, yet claimed it wasn't her fault. I eventually just told her to get back in her car, pay more attention while she drives, and consider this a gift. I swapped out the broken glass with the remaining mirror from my parts car, but found out the piece it attaches to is broken too. Hopefully the glass doesn't fall out while I'm driving until I feel like replacing the whole mirror.

But hey, it could have been MUCH worse. Just had to rant there for a minute.

Yeah, he said without any witnesses there's no way to prove who's at fault, even though she admitted that she might have come over to my side of the road. I honestly didn't expect the cop to do anything about it. I've lived in that town enough years to know the deal. The main reason I even stopped is so dumb bitch couldn't try to claim hit and run on ME.

You shoulda seen how she slammed on the brakes and turned around the second she saw the cop lights ahead. She KNEW she fucked up.

Glad it wasn't worse damage. I've had so many cars hit and run in a similar fashion, so I feel your pain.

Yeah, me too. Had a PARKED rental sideswiped at 2am that my neighbor witnessed and the police told me that _I_ hit someone and drove the car to where it was. The person who hit me broke the tie rod, so there was no steering, yet he insisted I drove it there.

geeze, I guess this is a city life thing. Never had any issues like that ever. My dad had a guy side swipe him and keep going, but he followed him home and called the cops. Cops showed up and found the guy wasted in his car, so needles to say he got his car fixed. Dude was loaded, as in filthy rich, so I assume he bought his way out of that one.

I live in one of the quietest historic neighborhoods in my town. Still doesn't mean it's a GOOD place to live. My neighbor happened to be outside cleaning up from a yard sale at 2 in the morning when he heard the hit. He didn't actually LOOK until he noticed her car squealing down the block. He saw her get out and look at her passenger side. He yelled to her, and she jumped back in the car and sped off. He didn't try to follow or anything. He wasn't even sure if her car was white or red. I was passed out at the time, so I didn't know anything about it until I went to go to work the next morning.

Or were you referring to the first post?

Have I ever mentioned the amount of times I've been hit in my tow truck? More than half the time the people just bounce. I just laugh at them because they left parts of their car on the ground by my truck when the smashed into the heavy steel and did absolutely no damage to me. lol

btw when I say bounce I mean they take off. They DO bounce off of my truck, but that's not what I meant.

You must be right. Especially one with so many lights all over it.
