Question What happens when someone reports your plate number?

So I was driving and got stuck behind a Dodge Neon doing 30mph in a 40mph zone. I took the damn thing on a hill and got in front of it. The guy hits his high beams and I just floor it. I had to pass up an F-150 because I was doing like 80mph. Problem is this guy in the Neon followed me and I knew he did. But I didn't want any trouble I just wanted him to get the hell out of my way. Well I parked in the local Wal-Mart parking lot because I was gonna buy some things. Well I knew that I shouldn't have done that because he drove right over to me and gave a look like I'm gonna kill you (literally). He got out of his car and I put my car in drive and took off. Doing like 50mph in a parking lot. As I was making my so called "get away" from an extremely disgruntled driver, he then proceded to punch or smack the deck lid of my car with his hand. Thats when I knew I really had to go. So I took off and as I was leaving the mall I saw the mall cops and I floored it again and got the hell out of there. It was really stupid because it scared me. You know someone getting that angry and getting out of their car and hitting it with their hands. So lets just say theoretically this guy has my license plate number. Can I get a ticket for this or not if he decides to report it. There weren't any cops around to see any of this and I don't think cops knew who they were looking for if they were even looking for me. By the way it was also very dark and it was like 1:30 AM. I know this was a really dumb thing to do but I'm regretting it now. Worrying that the cops may take this guy's word and mail me a traffic violation they can't even prove because they didn't see it.

The cops cant give u a ticket just from word of mouth. They have to witness it to prove it. Any ways u wern't in the wrong, he was. I mean doing 30 in a 40 u pass him so he gets pissed and starts to attack u. Next time u get followed pick up ur cell and call the cops urself. thaey will come and take care of it for u.

yea or toy w/ them thast fun!!! i was drving home one night and this audi pulle dup next to me i looked at him then this person infront of me sped up so i sped up put my blinker on and went to get over. well the guy decided i was racing and floored it so it made it seem like i cut him off. so we get to a light and he pulls in the turn lane i just stare at him and he stared at me. Then light turns green and he takes off so do i i am infront of him and hes behind me were doing 45 then 60 then yada i slam on my brakes and slow doen to 20 in a 45 ( no one was on the road) then i speed up slow down. The he goes to go around me so i get over. Then this happens till the nex light, WE get on dempsy which is a 2 lane road. i pick up my phone to let my freind know im on my way and he quikcly backs off anf makes u turn.


all in all just dont show them your afraid of them. Thats what fuels them. People who follow you need to check themselves they have somthing really wrong w/ them.

wow, what an ass, did you not give enough distance infront of him and cut him off? Some people just get pissy when they get passed b/c for some reason they have to be ahead of the pack. Something similar happened to me i was on a one lane road and this taxi down the road decided to jump out onto the road infront of me so i had to slam on my brakes....and he was illegally parked to begin with. So then hes infront of me and hes going like 25 miles an hour in a 30...which i and most people take at least 45-50 b/c theres no stop signs or adjecent roads. So i wait till its clear and we are in the part of the road where your allowed to pass( its dotted yellow which will turn into a double solid later on) So i put my blinker on, wait a few so that he has time to notice, proceed to pass and floor it once i get alittle ahead of the guy i put my blinker on to let him know im coming over. So it looked like i had enough space but what do you know when i look over to check if im clear i see him flooring it so i cannot pass him and i have to brake and get back in behind him...god i wish i had more power. Neway at the next light i was still behind him and he opened his window and gave me the finger, what an ass, i really hate taxi drivers, most of them drive like asses to begin with but then when someone else does it to them they get all pissy.

yah I woulda called the cops!! I know one day in my old zx3 I turned into this parking lot and a little down the ways there is an immidate left or right turn you must take but YOU don't stop the other traffic has the stop sign. So since it's a twisty I speed up to take the turn at around 35 and this fer decides he wants to try and cut me off...well theres no way I'm gonna let him when I'm not even a second from the turn and I have the right of way let him hit me and his insurance go up....SO I lay on the horn and flick his stupid ass off. I was 18 at the time very scrony and weak ;) so anywho he follows me to my parking space at Circuit City but I never noticed. Well I was pissed and shut off my car and go to get out and there he is by my window. Well I'm stupid so I just play it cool and open up my door cause I didn't think a 22 yr old was gonna beat up a kid. I give him room to move so I open my door and start to go away and hes like you better watch who you flick off!!! I said, well you better learn how to stop at a stop sign!! This is as I'm walking towards the building...well the guy decides he does wanna kick my ass and starts to run towards me so I IMMIDIATELY put it in high gear and luckily I was fast cause I RAN into circuit city and someone called the cops on the guy but he sped off before they got there....that was scary!! Never piss off a (no offence to anyone on here but it's true) redneck who owns a shitty beat up pickup truck! lol...

If someone did that to me, I would have called the cops, and NOT let him out of my sight....he's gonna pay for assaulting my car....I woulda REALLY liked to beat the piss out of them, but it's better to just call the cops. I woulda followed him till the cops found me....I got nothing better to do........

that shit ain't right......
