I was recently involved in a minor accident (less than $100 damage) but when I gestured for the other driver to pull off the road he jumped out of his car, moved towards me and became aggressive.
I have been a victim of crime and felt threatened so I drove off but reported the incident to the local police who felt I had behaved correctly.
The other driver reported a different version of events at a different police station and that officer has now charged me to appear in court.
I have a perfect driving record without as much as a parking fine. I have been involved in 2 other accidents, one in which I was at fault and on both occasions I stopped and exchanged details.
