OT - I was having lunch at the local Mexican restaurant the other day. I came out and walked up to my F250. There was a pile of amber and red plastic right in front of my bumper.
I took a close look, and none of my lights were broken. I looked real close, and then I could see where someone had hit one of the massive tow hooks on my front bumper. No real damage to my truck, other than a little paint scuff on the hook...on my seven year old truck.
People in the car right next to me were yelling..."hey, is that your truck?...we saw it happen, got the license number and called it in!"
The cops were right there. The cop who took my statement asked if I wanted to press charges. I said "darn right...last time somebody ran me in a parking lot, my insurance coughed up $2600". He said "good...we don't go for this around here".
While he was taking my statement, another cop called, and said he had the perp, across town.
I went on my way. A couple hours later, the cop called me, told me he had the *****, hauled her off to jail for hit and run.
Too bad for her. She punched her lights out and got a trip to jail for her trouble. No real damage on my end.
I told the cop if the perp had come inside and talked to me, we could have settled up with no complaint on my end. He said it would have been a $30 no-point ticket for her.
