Imagine you are walking or riding your bike home from work. You are on the sidewalk or in designated bike lanes, obeying traffic signals and using crosswalks appropriately. You are doing everything you can to be safe. Suddenly, out of nowhere, a car comes through an intersection and hits you.
Now imagine that same car pulling away and driving off. The driver doesn’t stop to see if you’re okay, and you didn’t get a good look at the car’s license plate. You might ask yourself how you’ll ever find out what happened and who was responsible for your injuries. Sadly, this might not be a hypothetical situation for you, which means getting these answers is a very real concern.
To identify a hit-and-run driver, you will likely need to rely on others.
