Help! I think I’m wanted by the fuzz! This morning, on my daily commute to college, traffic was light. So I was cruising along, when I came up to an intersection that had two lanes in my direction. The lane I was in had lots of traffic, and the lane beside me was empty. So I put on my blinker and started to change lanes so I wouldn’t have to slow down going through the intersection. But as I started to get in the other lane, the bastard in the red Probe decided to speed up and not let me in. By now it was way too late to slow down, so I gunned it and cut in front of the Probe, barely (I mean inches) missing the van stopped in my lane. As I cut over, I heard a loud POP from outside my door. I didn’t think much of it, because my car makes stupid noises all the time. But, too late to stop, I realized I had been so close in cutting over that my rearview had clipped the taillight of the van. The van made some aggressive moves to get in behind me, and I’m sure that he took down my license. The only visible damage to my car is a tiny chip and smear of paint missing from the very edge of my mirror (they are the kind that come out of the body, not the bolted on later kind) and my mirror was tilted all screwy. I don’t know if I broke the tail-light of the van. I came so close to plastering that van because of the fucking bastard in the Probe that it’s not even funny. What the FUCK is wrong with people that they SPEED THE FUCK UP when you put on your blinker!!?! Now I know I’m not guiltless in this, but I would have made it over with more than enough leeway if not for the Probe. What will/could the fuzz do about this if the van calls me in and gives a description of the events. Will they come after me? Only if there’s visible damage? I’m not scared, per se, but somewhat worried. FUCKERS! BLINKERS DON’T MEAN SPEED UP! IT MEANS LET ME OVER, DAMMIT! Sorry.
