Road rage Peterbilt style.

Do long haul truckers bump small cars when angry? I’ve heard of intimidation with brights at night and tailgating to keep cars out of the fast lane, but is this kind of threat a thing? Also, why didn’t the officer taking my report want to hear the entire story? They wrote it up as a hit & run but were disinterested in details and road rage. I think this guy is dangerous and the deductible for repairs is $500. Do I have recourse beyond the police to get me covered and make sure the driver is at least investigated? [more inside]

Help me figure out who hit my car this morning

Seattle long-shot filter: this morning I was in a hit and run accident with a van (the van was the hitter and runner, not me).

Metafilter detectives, please help me get some justice! Details about the van inside. [more inside]

How do I stop being a fearful driver after a very close call on the road?

A few weeks ago, an oncoming tanker truck ran me off the road on a curvy two-lane highway. I (barely) managed to avoid a collision or rollover but did clip a mailbox. Now whenever I drive the roads in this rural area, I'm constantly worried that oncoming cars are going to veer into my lane. [more inside]

What should I do with the infomation I got from the person who hit my car and ran

A hit-and-run accident. I was in one today, after being rear-ended by the idiot. After the guy takes off onto a nearby freeway onramp, I follow him and he exits at the next offramp. He then runs a red light, sideswiping two cars in the process, and I lose him. [more inside] [more inside]
