So it looks like even with a video, eye witness, and plate number, the Oklahoma City police do not care. Since its out of state what should I do next? I was thinking about calling and threatening the guy with giving me $500, or I call the police and press charges on the hit and run. Any other ideas.

if the city cops don't care... call the state cops. you can also go to the local court house and file charges. you will need the witnesses ID and contact info as well as this dudes plate number and vehicle description.

here's one for ya- My buddy was driving my Miata to get some break-in miles on the clutch. Sitting at a light waiting to make a right hand turn on red, the cube van behind him just starts accerlating and runs into my car, pushing him while his foot was on the brakes! Then the guy looks forward and realizes what he's doing! Doh! Driving forward w/o looking where you're going- that's how people do it.

People just do not care and/or lack the ability to pay attention. Someone in a car larger than they needed to be driving...
Sorry to see that.

I have a habit of waiting beside large vehicles which are parked over the lines of the space just to tell the owner that they shouldn't drive a vehicle if they can't even park it correctly. I hate it when two trucks park on either side of me both angled toward me... I can usually get back out with 1/4" to spare, but sometime I'm stuck till one of them returns. Some ******* with a black GMC in MI needs a new rear fender thanks to that... and my steel toes.

yea the ''im cool i have a big truck'' scene is rediculous.i had enough of these retarted people watching mtv.and see what ''gangsters'' are driving.it i read that cadillac sold 30,000 escalades in 05 or 06,and i wouldnt be suprised if 15,000 came hear.and 99% of the time its not a family,its 1 guy in the drivers seat.in these big trucks,and all the fullsize pickups never have anything in the cab.

oh,and another ******* retarted thing,guys who have expensive rides.have all the windows tinted,have $10,000 rims,and they roll down the window blast rap and put on a face like there from hell.

sorry about the wandering post,i just cant stand the kis my age around here.

Dude, if anyone ever kicked in my fender in front of me just because I parked poorly or inconsiderately that would be the end of them. That is so not cool and worse than the original offense!
