So! I had an incident yesterday.
I was going down Flinders Lane when this guy in a Hilux/ute type thing just flung out his door. I managed to have the reflexes to swerve not to get hit.
As one does when one's life has just been threatened, I let out a few expletives. This guy had the nerve to say 'what did you say to me?'. I turned around and explained to him that a) opening a door like that and not checking for traffic is illegal, and b) he nearly KILLED me.
He had the nerve to then tell me that I was in the wrong because I wasn't on the far side of the one way street. I was actually about a metre away from the ute in question when going past. I reiterated that what he did was illegal and he just kept saying it was my fault.
Anyways, I was much upset at all of this but did have the presence of mind to get his plate number. I was just thinking of putting it on the plate site which you can list a plate and put it down as being one that has done something dodgy and name where the dodginess happened. Problem is that I can't remember the address or even the name of it to google it!
Not sure what to do now in other ways. I was so upset about what happened that when I got to outside work (not far from where it happened) I just sat down and cried for ages. Some workmates got me a cabcharge, locked my bike up and sent me home. I pretty much got hugs from my partner and went to sleep. I haven't reported to police or anything. Is it too late to do so?
