Filthy pigs. I didn't know I was speeding but I get a ticket
39, & 47, I hate when people bash cops. Ok, so they give us speeding tickets, a) you were the one choosing to break the law, so accept the consequences of it, b) they are out their fighting to keep our streets clean every single day and they are getting crap for it and minimal pay, c) I'm sure you wouldn't mind them showing up if you're life was threatened, and d) have some respect! All people deserve to be treated right, you would freak out if people treated you the way cops are treated, so why is it ok for you to treat them that way? I think it sounds so immature when people bash cops. Just have some respect guys.
@54 I was trying to be sarcastic and make a comparison between people who make generalizations about large groups of people. It just wasn't very funny or well done... Anyway, 39 is a jackass. I personally feel honored that people are willing to put their lives on the line to make mine and others' safer. Kudos to you for not putting up with shit about law enforcement
82, Glad to hear it. I'm afraid I missed the sarcasm in your comment, but I'm happy to hear you think highly of the police as well. I just find there are so many people who are so negative about cops just because they give speeding tickets. If you choose to break the law by speeding you should be able to accept the consequences in my opinion. People should also realize they do so much more than just hand out tickets.
Some cops don't care if it's not their problem! Sorry OP I hope you and your car are alright!
A sane police officer would give him a ticket anyways for reckless driving.
Don't forget, the cops didn't witness it. They can't write a ticket for speeding as they have no evidence. If you wanted a ticket written, you'd have to swear out a complaint yourself and go to court to fight it. The only thing you can now do is sue for damages. Good luck.
#78 You are exactly right. Speeding was an example. If the cops saw it happening, they could have ticketed him for speeding, dangerous driving and leaving the scene of an accident. I still think he should have gotten the last one, but some people can talk their way out of anything.
Hope you're doing okay, OP. Don't worry, karma will always there to get him :)
Karma for accidentally hitting another car probably won't be that bad. FYL OP for being such a vindictive sook. it doesn't sound like you're hurt, I'm sure you got the other guy's contact details, and there's no doubt he hit you (unintentionally). Get your car fixed and get over it. The other guy probably feels pretty bad and maybe he didn't get a ticket because he wasn't being a jerk about the whole situation.
The other guy was stopped by the Police.. My issue is that OP wants him to be punished for it when it was an accident. If the guy was denying it, it would be different. He obviously legitimately didn't know. He didn't take to the car with a baseball bat and then say "oh sorry, didn't realise I hit you"..
