Mad Dash For Dash Cam

| Friendly | May 12, 2015

(I am working my delivery route and stop at a red light before turning right. The guy ahead of me makes the turn and stops at the end of the line of cars. I check to make sure the coast is clear, make the turn, and come to a complete stop well before the guy’s bumper. Suddenly the guy in front of me looks back, looks me dead in the eyes, and shifts into reverse, guns the motor, surges backward, and rams my front bumper. Of course, he gets out screaming and yelling about his neck and about how he’s going to sue me for every penny I’m worth for ramming him.)

Me: *totally calm* “That’s not what happened, and you know it.”

Man: “Oh, yeah? And who’s going to believe that I put my car in reverse to hit YOU?”

(I just smiled calmly. The police arrive, and statements are given. The whole time the guy is ranting and raving about how he’s sustained an injury from my reckless driving. I remain calm throughout the entire thing, even going back to the car to retrieve a small item to hand to the cops.)

Man: “HEY! What the hell do you think you’re doing?! Are you seriously trying to bribe the f****** COPS?!”

Me: “Not at all. I was simply handing them the memory card to my dash cam.”

(The driver went dead white. Long and the short of it? He got in trouble for fraud and several other driving charges…)
