Post Clipped a dumbass in a mini cooper this morning



So this morning i was going north on Dufferin, i was coming up to an intersection (i was in the right lane) there was a car in the lane beside me. Just as we enter the intersection the light changes amber. Well there was a guy in a mini cooper going west he accelerated/entered the intersection before his light turned green. So i swerved as much as i could to the left, my rear tire clipped his license plate and the holder and it broke off. the guy freaked on me. So he got my info he calls me a hr ago to tell me he wants the holder replaced. I go to Bmw Toronto they tell me it's like 130 dollars..... what should i do.

Why did you give him your info?? That "accident" is his fault... he hit you from the side and you had the right of way. He can freak out all he wants... Did you get his info?? Tell him that your tire is scratched and that you want it to be replaced at his cost... as it is his fault... with people like that never admit fault or back down

i like what miro said. i'd go with that. make sure its not your fault and tell him either call it even or you'll buy him that holder and he buys you a new tire or 2 since tire shops don't let you buy 1.

I do have his info. He wanted it "in case something was wrong with his bumper" he was arguing with me saying i went threw a red when i didn't. His car was standard when he pulled it over it seemed like he had a issue controling the clutch and shifting im thinking he got ready to drive and Gave it too much gas causing him to jump the light.

What was his name? lol... hope its not some tool i know, he'd do this....

I'd say what they said.... he's at fault, tell him to either **** off or replace the tire he scuffed... lol. When faced with either buying a pair of winter tires, or replacing a licence plate bracket, he'll probably just go away.

I would have taken his plate and reported him.

tell him that he can lick your hairy sack and that he should slow the FALK down... hang up with him... go to the collision reporting centre, report it, and then he will have to file in 72 hours or else he's going to get charged with leaving the scene...

F him b4 he F's you...!
