We all know the stress and torture traffic jams can inflict upon us. Anyway, I was in a highway traffic jam earlier today and saw another car bump another car in front of him. Maybe the driver was daydreaming, who knows. Weird thing was the driver who was bumped didnt get out to check if there was damage and just kept on driving but im pretty sure he felt the bump since it looked hard enough. In my 6 yrs of driving, the only accident i had was hit a tree while backing up (lol) so ive never been in that kind of situation.
My question is if someone bumped you like that, though probably not hard enough to cause a dent on your bumper but enough to maybe cause scratches, would u get out of your car and check it out knowing its gonna make the traffic jam even worse? Keep in mind that even if you do, the likelihood of cops coming is slim since ive heard they dont even bother checking it out if there are no physical injuries. Plus if you file an insurance claim, your premium will likely go up even if its not your fault.
