sounds more like driver was in a huge hurry and being a douche bag. someone could have gotten seriously hurt. his insurance rates ought to be pretty interesting when he gets done with this mess. 2 extra minutes of his time- and he could have avoided this.no excuse- this is not your typical fender bender. read the charges again. and he is still in the risk pool- he will have to work two jobs just to pay insurance rates. not worth it. lesson for someone else tho.

p.s. i was at a red light the other day by first crush. some asshole was behind me honking for me to turn. last time i checked drivers stop for red lights.red light means stop- wait for green arrow or green light- but not go thru a red light. and this guy was gesturing and waving- another douche bag who got lucky enough to pass a road test. how is the question.

He more than likely did all of this damage to save mere seconds of time, not even minutes. People don't realize how little time they are saving when they pull these stunts. I sincerely hope the driver of the Jeep gets everything he deserves and more from this yahoo.
No you cant

It is illegal to turn on red in town. Look up at the signs next to the lights sometimes. That is what they say. I can't count the number of times I have been crossing at the crosswalk and some dipshit turned on red and almost hit me. Happens all the time there and at the intersection by the fire station.

You can turn right on red only if the "no right on red" sign is NOT hanging.

Nothing like crawling out of a vehicle you love, in front of all your classmates and professors... It happened at 5:11 PM, not AM. I was headed to a school event among all anthropology students and professors on campus...

At least you weren't hurt, hopefully, only your pride.

If that driver crashed into me because of stupidity like that...they would be calling the cops on me and not them. They are "lucky" they didnt hit someone with an anger problem.

Oops, you're absolutely right. I hope they yank the ticketed driver's license for a very long time. Having been hit by a car I can attest as to how dangerous it is to drive without other people's safety in mind. Cars are not toys!!!
