State Of Rhode Island (188.8.131.52
The Staties are all up in my shit now, as if I am the criminal. She is the criminal.
§31-26-4 goddammit. I can't put the picture of their search yet because at this precise moment I ran out of Picasa space on my blogger account and have to purchase more. But they are reading a ton of my posts.... and none of them are violent, ahem.
"The driver of any vehicle which collides with another vehicle which is unattended and damage results to either vehicle shall immediately stop and shall then and there either locate and notify the operator or owner of the unattended vehicle of the name and address of the driver and owner of the vehicle striking the unattended vehicle or shall leave in a conspicuous place in or upon the unattended vehicle a notice written in the English language giving the name and address of the driver and of the owner of the vehicle doing the striking and a statement of the circumstances of the collision, and shall immediately give notice of the accident to a nearby office of local or state police. In the event the office so notified does not have jurisdiction of the locale of the accident, it shall be the duty of the officer receiving the notice to immediately give notice of the accident to the office having jurisdiction."
So she did go down to file a report at the end of last week...after I contacted the school and left a note on her windshield, what a massive PITA this whole thing was. In addition to the cosmetics she won't idle now and on a bike that is a HUGE safety issue, it's almost unrideable in city traffic. And the thing is, if you didn't know you struck a 500lb vehicle you shouldn't be driving. And if you did know and you walked, then you should be facing some sort of prosecution (I am reviewing the applicable Statutes) which I look forward to bringing. See you soon.
PS: For those of you new to this journal I am in the midst of reporting on the Cody Eller motorcycle road rage trial scheduled for later this month.
