I was coming home on my scooter. It was somewhere around 10 PM. I was driving on the main road of this market, right in the middle, and this pet dog suddenly jumps in front of me in the middle of the road--all the while he's wearing his long leash. I don't know where this moron owner was lost but that dog instantly changed his lane from the safe side and came to the middle of the road. There wasn't any time to react even though I'd hit the breaks.
It was a market road so I was slow anyways and he wasn't thankfully killed or something (not then at least). But his head was hit by the front part of my scooter, the area right above the mudguard. I was shocked, so kept the scooty going slowly, looking back and wondering if I should stop or not.
That dog owner (who seemed like a huge, fat guy) suddenly had a burst of anger and started shouting, hurling abuses, etc., at me. Instinctively I knew if I'd stopped I would end up in some brawl or some road rage shit. So I basically did whatever I thought would be best and bailed out of the place as quickly as I could (I didn't know if that guy was running after me or something, so I was super fast after I'd made the decision).
I was in shock the whole while I was driving. People end up dead or worse for the smallest of things on the road in this country. That way that dude shouted, I got tensed AF I'll have to fight this guy.
So, what do I do now? Do I report this incident to the police? If this guy reports me, will I be in trouble or something? What should I do from here? I know law varies in countries, etc., but what would be most rational thing here? I'm thinking of going the lawyer route and then prolly make a report in police station at least (courts usually have a 24-hrs limit to report for hit and run/traffic stuff like this, so gotta move fast).
Start looking for an attorney and ask them. Other than that, the most sensible thing to do is ask around for a reliable helmet camera surveillance set up for yourself.Read More

@Vermillion-Rx Saying women are sexual beings, I think, gives legitimacy to the feminist excuse of not slutshaming women (wahmen are humans, so shouldn't be slut shammed for their bad sexual choices, etc.). But, however sexual women may be, they literally have 12-17 times less testosterone than an average male. And yet you don't the see avg. male going around pumping and dumping hoes (in fact, most men can't even accept female nature; hypergamy, etc.) But women are careless about their sexuality and relationships. So there's obviously something else going on, I think.
