So on the way home, traffic was stop and go.  I didn't quite brake in time and I lightly bumped the pick up in front of me.  I'm definitely taking fault as I was too close to him to begin with obviously.  I'm driving a Jeep wrangler with a bumper that has Clevis/D rings on it.  One ring made contact with his bumper which left a small scrape mark.  His bumper looked like it might have been sagging a little but maybe not.

I followed him for about 2 miles and he never attempted to pull over anywhere or made any indication that he wanted to.  At one point he sped way up ahead of me.  So I guess I lucked out but I still feel like I'm in the wrong.

I ended up just going home.  The "overthinker" in me is freaking out and I'm expecting the police to show up at my house any minute.

He was probably driving illegally, either drunk, without a license, without insurance, or without being here legally.


Should have PITted him and slammed him on the ground till the police came.

I doubt police will show up, probably just someone with too many wrecks and doesn't want another, or else had music playing and wasn't paying attention, in which case I doubt they noticed what your car looks like. I've bumped a few cars before, never actually had one stop.

Also, that's what she said.

I saved a ton of money on my car insurance by fleeing the scene of the accident!
