Default Help finding perpetrator of road rage incident on 35!

Hey fellow Impreza owners of Texas! I live in south Austin, work outside of town near Buda, TX. I commute to work and going home in rush hour traffic, a truck tailgates me and then intentionally sideswiped my '06 WRX wagon while going 80! Fortunately no major damage, and he initially got off at the next ramp and went to a parking lot, waving me along the whole time. I was hopeful it was all a mistake; then he pulled a u-turn in the cabelas lot and came speeding towards me head on, only stopping a foot or so in front of my bumper! AHHHHH so scary! I had already called police but when they ran his plates they were not associated with the car. If anyone sees a newer model blue Toyota tundra with a dent in the driver side, with plate starting BMB, let me know! I have no way to claim on my insurance against the driver since he was lost to rush hour traffic.

You don't have uninsured motorist coverage?

Well poop... He told police there was no collision. Insurance got the same story and denied my claim. SUCKS SO MUCH! Fortunately the damage isn't too bad, I'm getting a quote from an insurance sanctioned body shop. I'm thinking of sending the guy a copy of the invoice as sort of a final EFF YOU!

Or maybe just realize that trying to get even isn't going to solve anything. Sounds like an unhappy individual, and I just can't see any reason to try to make this person more unhappy. He's digging his own grave right now.

Yeah, I kind of agree... According to the police's email, he described the guy and his wife as "kind" which seems like the polar opposite of what I saw. I suspect he isn't remorseful, but I'd rather not get into shenanigans with someone like that. You never know what someone is capable of.

Yeah, true. If the jackass would have done it to someone a little more paranoid than you we may have all seen this story on the 5 'o'clock news.

Protecting yourself with a firearm isn't paranoia. This person's life was in mortal danger being rammed on the highway by a larger vehicle. I have no question someone with access to a firearm and the skills to use it while in a moving vehicle would have done so, and they would be in the right.

The PD couldn't look at his truck and see your paint on it anywhere?

So instead of getting a slight bump that produced almost no discernable damage you are proposing that shots should be fired from a moving vehicle while driving (a standard none the less) possibly harming innocent bystanders and putting bullet holes in things/people.

Even if the original poster was James Bond and he got off a perfect shot he would have just shot a man over maybe a couple hundred dollars.

The best option is always to deescalate the situation, usually by walking away. It might not be the easiest or most attractive option but is almost always the best one. You cannot just go around shooting people, not even asshats.

I disagree. People like this don't belong in our society. He risked countless lives doing this to someone unprovoked. edit: I didn't see any pictures, were they posted somewhere?

I don't know who your insurance is but I had a similar situation happen. I ended up having to fight the insurance company for a few weeks over the lies the other driver told the police and my insurance but eventually I got an insurance case worker willing to fight on my behalf and they caught him in another lie (while threatening to take him to court) and his insurance ended up paying for everything (no deductible from my pocket).
