You are sitting at a stoplight and BANG! someone runs right into the back end of you. What do you do?
Many people react by getting out of their cars, marching right up to the person who hit them and start yelling and threatening physical violence. Bad idea on many levels:
1. They are in traffic and another car can pass and run over them trying to get around the accident or because there is another lane next to the cars.
Okay. So you got pulled over by the police. You got a ticket for driving with no insurance. Worse yet, you got a ticket for driving while suspended. In Oregon, a police officer has the authority to have your car towed from the point where you were detained, leaving you stranded. Yep, walking home, calling for a ride. Embarrassing, huh?
