This letter is to the well-off looking couple driving the green SUV, whose N.C. license-plate number I recorded. I’m the owner of the red Honda Element that you rear-ended coming off I-240 West onto Merrimon Avenue at 2:11 p.m. on Saturday, Feb 2—and that you saw fit to drive past, staring, even though I pulled over and signaled you to please stop.
Are you aware that hit-and-run is against the law? Had you been responsible, decent people who had enough concern for their neighbors to pull over to see if there was damage, I would have told you not to worry about it. Now I’m angry. Would you like to reply with an apology, or shall I go ahead with the police report? We all have a responsibility to be considerate to the people with whom we share our city.
