""Don't discuss it here" makes sense as a general rule but if there's no damages there will be no sense in having a court battle. Also if you're in the right and you're telling the truth what's the harm?"

"Mike Keating said, "Sorry you had to go through, the impact and insult from this driver". Wise words. Very true."

Hit and Run: No Injuries or Damage: Action Required?

I was involved in a hit and run travelling northbound on Milwaukee at the intersection of Ashland.  While approaching the red light a car hit my rear tire and leg.  I calmly asked the driver to exchange information with me, but she sped off. I obtained a driver's license number and filed a police report.  I did not go to the ER as my condition was adequate enough to continue. Is there anything more I should do?  I've never been in such a situation and don't know my rights or obligations. See More
