Si wreck

The Si just bit it. Someone ran a stop sign and I couldn't miss him. His F150 was going left to right, and I hit him with my left front, destroying the front end of the Si. He left the scene. I gave chase and he pulled over a few blocks away. The cops came. He had no insurance.

He got off.

I spun the tires when I pulled away, mad that he didn't go to jail or get a ticket.

I got 4 tickets for spinning my tires.

Where's the justice?

Re: Si wreck

That stinks- it is a good thing that it doesn't sound like you were hurt- hopefully you have underinsured/uninsured coverage and that will fix your car or get you something equivalent.

Re: Si wreck

Wow, that is really unfair. I hate when it goes like that. You try to do the right thing and get punished while the guy who does everything wrong is let go. Happens to me all too often!

Re: Si wreck

4 tickets for spinning your tires? Is that one ticket per tire?

Re: Si wreck

(total loss) that is jacked. you drove the thing away? that is really messed up.

I was under the impression (and it may be state to state) that if there is an accident and one of the people has no insurance that it is automatically his fault. that is how it is in NC, at least to my knowledge.

is insurance at least going to cover it? man I really liked the SI hatchbacks. maybe you can get one of the newer SIs. they have more power but not available in a hatch.

dang it. hopefully this will turn out alright for you.

Re: Si wreck

Sounds like the DMV needs to step in on this one. I can't believe the cop let the guy get away with leaving the scene of an accident. Get talking with your insurance company about this. Loosing your cool is never a good thing in these situations. It is always a good idea to obey the law under all conditions so the one at fault sticks out more!

depends on the state, IL its mandatory to have insurance and a hefty fine without it and no insurance tickets are always delt out. Now the person may be innocent in whatever scene but they will still get a ticket. dunno what indy does...

who had the right of way? im assuming you hit his front right cornner?

IL is goofy about that sometimes, if you hit someone behind the fender (door rear quarter) then it can be your fault for not paying attention driving too fast for conditions etc as the figure if you hit them that far back then you werent doing somehting right. of course that isnt in any book but from what ive seen and heard from cops and accidents...

also your lucky u didnt get arrested as spinning the wheels and excessive acceleration are known as wreckless driving in this state....

Re: Si wreck

I was going straight. He ran a stop sign on my right. He started to brake, so I swerved left thinking he was going to stop. He accelerated again, and I swerved right, and caught him in the left rear with my left front. The step bumper on his F150 cut my car open like a tin can.

I got four tickets when I left after the cops told me to go home. I got one for unsafe start (spinning the tires because I was pissed that the guy didn't go to jail). I got one for doing a U-Turn. The cops had the road partially blocked, and I was going to take my heap home using the shortest route possible, and I would have had to circle the block if I went straight. I got a ticket for not using my turn signal. WHAT turn signal? My turn signal was 2 blocks away on the side of the road. I got a ticket for unsafe lane change. I did not change lanes. I don't get it.
