Yesterday DD and I were nearly hit by a town highway vehicle. I saw it was coming down the street, knew he had a stop sign and started to cross. I realized halfway across the street he is not stopping at the sign. I stop in the middle of the street.
He stops with the front end of his truck a few feet past where I am standing.(this stop was 8-10 feet after the stop sign!!)
I walk AROUND the front of his truck to get to the sidewalk.
I called the department yesterday and emailed: the superintendent called me about it and said w/o a truck number they can't do much since the driver likely will not come forward about this issue.
I get an email about 2pm that they id'd the truck and spoke to the driver abou it.
I replied asking if he admitted to the situation. got no reply so i emailed again this am
The super called me back and said the driver said he was not that close to me and that i was not in the street!!!
I flipped and yelled at him (as i'd done yesterday) he suggested if i'd like to presue this furhter i'd need to file a police report and its he said she said
I"m so mad.... i know where i stopped (dd was asking why i stopped" i had to explian to her i did not think the drive was stopping
I can about guarantee if i'd not stopped we'd be dead!
DH is livid (he works for the town and can't believe the supervisor basically called me a liar!!
i told DH i was sorry that this may follow him through his career.. he said he does not care (and in theory it should not but i expect it too somehow)
Ordered an orange safety vest that i willl now wear on walks (i walk everywhere)
