Oh, he didn't buy it. He used to be the GM of a seafood trucking business and had a 100 semis running for him. All he wanted to do was get home and let the company deal with it.

I'd call the tv news and let them do a story but he won't let me. I sure hope they go after that creep.

So sorry HB! I'm so glad that it turned out with nothing more than some dents and dings and flared tempers especially having it happen on the highway no telling how it could of turned out. A blessing and a lesson all in one.

Thank you, shpj4...it's just so hard for me to believe that our Officers would treat an accident like this.

I'm glad to hear it, Jan. How maddening for Mr HB, though.

I guess that truck didn't have one of those "How Am I Driving?" slogans on the back either.

I'm sorry! But it was the first thing I thought of when I read about Mr HB's plight.

Actually, I seem to remember hearing/reading somewhere that those phone numbers to report driving habits are a bunch of bullsh too.
