    A bit of punctuation would help.

    For starters, it sounds like you need an alarm clock and a watch, since you seem to have a constant crisis of being in a hurry.

    In your case, they would appear to. Had you not been rushing at the last minute, you admit the crash would not have happened.

    In addition to punctuation, spelling, and sentence structure, a bit less hyperbole and a bit more actual fact would also allow people to better help you. While what the cop was doing at the time of your collision is irrelevant, your assertion that he/she was “doing nothing” is an unsupported assumption that tends to paint you as more than a little ignorantly arrogant – an opinion which is certainly supported by your replies to other posters. I also highly doubt that you only “rolled back one inch at like 2mph” before colliding with the other car. The “blind spots” are to the side, behind the driver’s shoulders.

    So, if you would like useful responses, how about you:
    A – Display a bit less arrogance and ‘tude. Aardvarc’s suggestion that better time management might benefit you, while perhaps a bit sarcastically delivered, is nonetheless relevant and useful advice. You come here and ask for help from complete strangers, who owe you nothing and receive nothing in return. Your hyperbole and ‘tude do nothing to encourage those here to help you. If you want someone to treat you with the deference you appear to believe you are due, go pay an attorney to answer your questions.
    B – Provide us with a simple, factual description of what actually happened. And,
    C – Give us a hint of what questions you have and what information you are actually seeking. You describe a minor collision, say that the police are now filing a report that you claim is in your favor, then ask “what should I do or can I do?” Should or can do about what???
    Behind the badge is a person. Behind the person is an ego. This is as it should be, person at the center and ego to the back.
