I can understand cities and the state charging for accident reports for those not involved; personally I would prefer to keep the information contained private — but anyone with the right information can get it.
I could almost, before the advent of computers and cheap storage capacity, see charging for older reports.
But to charge people to download a police report on the collision they were in 6 days ago — ridiculous. And for it to cost $6 plus taxes, come on folks. Now you are just gouging people.
Especially since it looks like the other party isn’t willing to step and make things right. Called once last week and talked to the car owner; she said she would get the information on how to file an insurance claim. That was Wednesday. Tried again this morning and didn’t get a response.
Had a great blog post planned (not really was going to wing it) and needed to start the day early because a rush project.
Instead of getting into the office early, knocking out a quick post; I spent an hour or so dealing with a minor fender bender. One of those low speed freeway collisions; two or three cars up from me, one decides to stop suddenly for no $@#% reason. Everyone Most Everyone brakes in time, I barely avoided the truck in front of me. Unfortunately the driver behind me didn’t, he hit me pushing me into the truck. I couldn’t tell if my hitting the truck pushed him into the car in front of him but it doesn’t matter; both of them drove off without even thinking of exchanging information.
My back bumper is messed up slightly and the other guys front grill had some parts come loose. Of course, when I go to exchange insurance information; his policy is expired.
And it isn’t his car.
And his name isn’t on the policy anyways.
Cops were called just to make sure everything was on the level and the other driver did produce an identification card; not a valid Texas Driver’s license though. I have contact information and the officer did inform me there was a valid policy on the car. Whether the driver is covered or not remains to be seen.
Guess I know what I’ll be doing in my ‘spare time’ for a while.

Yeah, it really does sound like something I need…..to read.
Not having a great Friday so far. Hope yours is better.
Simply states “During Rush Hour traffic, you will encounter one #$%#^^, jerk/inattentive driver per mile that you have to commute. Unfortunately some of them are going the exact same way you are for most of that distance”
My new commute is 29 miles. Takes about an hour to go that distance.
Time to decompress — wonder if I have any Bacardi Limon left in the pantry.
