Happened last Friday, April 20, around 3:30PM.
Heading home from work and I stop behind a Vancouver Taxi minivan stopped at a stop sign. I always give room and stay stopped behind him where I can see his rear wheels (riding a bike makes you a more defensive driver!)
All of sudden he starts to back up and I start honking my horn but he continues to back up. I put my car into reverse and as I was moving back his van hit my car. Sh*T man.
So, I put the car in park and get out to see the damage. I'm now outside of my car and I see the driver of the van getting out and I can hear very loud music coming from his car (no wonder he could not hear me honking my horn!!!!).
I looked around for witnesses but did not see any one, Sh*T. When I called ICBC, the women said that it will be his word against mine.
Well, today I found out that this cab driver said that I BACKED into him. What a FU*KER. The Fu*ker is lying and I can't do a thing about it. It really is not the cost of fixing my car that bothers me but the fact that he is accusing me of lying is what gets to me. The Fu*ker!
As anyone gone through some thing similar to this? If so, what did you do to get results in you favour?
