My neighbor is a limo driver and I live in a townhouse complex. She had her limo parked outside and did not even think twice about looking behind me when I was backing up because 99/100 times, she doesn't have it parked there. I tapped it with my car, and "fled the scene". I wasn't going more than 5 MPH when I hit it and thought that the damage wasn't severe enough to notice. Apparently it was and she called the police and I was cited with "failure to give information after striking unattended vehicle. " She said she did not want to press charges but the officer said they HAD TO cite me with something. Should I be more concerned with the ticket or the tyrannical operations of modern day police NEEDING to write me up for something when the plaintiff did not even want to press charges?
