Dear folks, dont know why I didnt posted the conclusing espiode in this forum. Anyway 8th Jun 2009 I went down to the hearing to nail down the road bully who damaged my RX-8.
The verdict is clear! The road bully is found guilty! The road bully has to pay the damages he has inflicted on my beloved SARAH! http://www.rx8clubsingapore.com/viewtopic.php?t=2547
Yes! Justice is finally served!
The whole process took 370 days to resolve but I'm glad that things still work out in the end
At the hearing, I have no witnesses against 1 witness from the road bully. I have only 2 police reports and 2 assessor reports. Having a witness actually didnt help the road bully because his witness mentioned that road bully did approach my car and hit it. (Makes me wonder why he wanted to summon his own witness to prove he is guilty of hitting my car???) Anyway, I knew that the court will rule in my favour because the traffic police confirmed that they have issued a warning letter for this road bully's actions. (Now the traffic police will not issue any warning letter if the road bully's actions are not wrong isnt it?) But in court today, this road bully deliberately kept avoiding the fact that he hit at my car. Alas, he even tried to mislead the judge by saying that I might have caused the damage from earlier accidents and even say that he saw a different driver at that time. (He has a fantastiic imagination, I must say!)
To all those who have supported me - Thankx you!
To all those who feels that there is no justice in this world and that we should just swallow all bad things as they come along - Believe in the truth and follow up with it ALL THE WAY!
Just in case any folks might come across similar cases, do ensure the following -
1) DO NOT ENGAGE IN ANY PHYSICAL CONFRONTATION. If you do that, you open an avenue for the other party that you initial the whole incident. Stay in your car.
2) Make a '999' call immediately. This call will be recorded so that you have a record that you have made a report on the spot.
3) Take evidence; video, photos etc of the aggressor.
4) Note down the surroundings, particularly any cars and witnesses whom you can refer to.
5) Quickly get an assessor to assess damage to your car.
6) Prepare your items and file suit against party
