Just got back from traffic court where the idiot cab driver that hit me insisted on pleading not guilty and forcing a trial.
-- There were no pedestrians anywhere near the intersection when he made his left-hand turn.
-- He never saw me.
-- "Something" hit the side of his cab, which was why he pulled over.
-- I asked him to call the police, and he did.
-- He did not have a cell phone. (See point immediately above.)
-- He offered his assistance before the police arrived.
His attorney intimated that:
-- I deliberately walked into the side of his client's taxi; or,
-- I drunkenly stumbled into the side of client's taxi;
-- Whichever of the above is "true," his client is the true victim;
-- I am a mercenary bitch out to take his client for everything he's worth, and take the taxi company along with him.
Fortunately, the judge found me to be a very credible witness and found the sonuvabitch guilty.
Now I need a good lawyer, because the cabbie and his attorney have pissed me off royally.
Excuse me while my head explodes...
