I didnt know if it was just me that was happening to. I havent had an enjoyable ride in a long time because everytime i go out, i almost get hit by some idiot.

I feel your pain... Here is my thread from yesterday, http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=31225
I'm starting to think more and more about drivers being worse these days. It is a scary world, how bad is the damage? Frame sliders FTW!!!

Glad your ok!

In the last two days I have had one guy that didnt see me at all and cross the street slammed on the brakes to just avoide Tboning him, one that moved into my lane almost cutting me off and then slamed on the brakes and made a sharp right , and one just 20 mins ago that apparently didnt see me and then kinda went but stopped with his car halfway in my lane. :BangHead:

now the bad thing about all these is that I was actually driving my car

unfortunately its reality and its not a cager vs. bike thing is just that there are a bunch of distracted (cell phone/text/other stuff) and just stupid on the road now a days.

The world is jam-fukin' packed with people that really and truly are just plain stupid! I am always amazed and scared at the general public's true lack of intelligence.

But these same people get to drive cars (hence your above stories), vote for Hillary (hence stupid government that says you have to hit the other car for them to be at-fault), and serve on jury panels (hence child molesters only get probation)!

Just my SCARRY rant...

The cop has no interest in this, he wasn't even there. You can file on his Insurance Co. He forced you off the road. Ppl file on this all the time and get paid. If you still have his info file a PR and ask him for his Insurance carrier so u can get your bike fixed the driver knew he was wrong. I have paid claims like this many times I was an adjustor for Geico.

I'm glad to know you're okay from all this, but I would have called the department the officer works for. The cop just didn't want to do the paper work.
I got rear ended and the cop said there was nothing he could do because the guy left. I told him where he lived and he still didn't do . He only would have if he had to call an ambulance... That's Harris County for ya.

Excuse me??? You think I'm some ignorant person who doesn't know when someone is getting ****ed over? I guess a cop was doing his duty by not going to that guys house when the car registration was expired, his name wasn't attached to the vin number, his driver's license wasn't updated, and he fled the scene of an accident. How I know this? I used to work for a process serving company. Sorry officer, I forgot how ****in smart you were.

I'm not against all cops. Some actually help. Fort Bend is really nice, but too bad their aren't enough here.

...

Sorry, connection timed out...

You said "The cop just didn't want to do the paperwork."

There is no paperwork that the cop can do in that particular situation. I don't agree with the way the law is written, but THERE IS NO PAPERWORK or anything the cop needed to do. You can't be found at-fault if you never hit the other vehicle, its just the way it is.

As some other member posted, an insurance claim MAY be able to be filed, but that just depends on the insurance company's willingness to do anything.

Now, as to your previous bad experience, it sounds as if you had a legitimate complaint. I would encourage anyone with a LEGIT complaint to complain! Unfortunately, about 99.9452% of complaints are not valid and waste time and your money...

And the DA's office, especially HARRIS COUNTY, pretty much won't let cops file charges even if the crime is on tape, the criminal confesses, and its a lock-tight case... it really is ridiculous. You'd be suprised and horrified with the t the DA's office allows people to get away with...:confused1

I know he cannot be held at fault, but there could have been some type of accident report that COULD have been given to the insurance company so that he won't have to pay for this out of his own pocket. That officer could have helped with some advise on how he should handle this situation. I didn't see the [previous post, my apologies. As for my accident, it was a waste of my time and apparently a waste of that particular officer's time. He didn't help me in the least, but I remember almost a year prior THAT same officer wrote me a ticket for speeding. This was definitely not a waste of time to to fill out SOME TYPE of paper so my happy to pay the city.



And don't get me started on emergency numbers.

I wouldn't be suprised because in that accident, the officer could have written at least 5 tickets to my knowledge and didn't do it.

The cop could have written him a ticket for failure to yield right of way. He was blowing smoke up your . You bet your you can file against his insurance for repair of your bike. Just because he didn't hit you does not mean he did not cause the accident. You do have things you can do in the Civil court.

I got an accident report. I'll claim it on my insurance, but it is going against me... It is BS if you ask me... That is life, at least it wasn't a brand new paint job you wrecked. I didn't get lucky enough to have my frame sliders save all of my bodywork, but my bike is still ok, just a bit more ugly than before. Gives it temporary character!
