Texting and driving is the worst epidemic on our streets today. The law markers, the police, the bikers, and so many other people keep telling car drivers to keep their phones aside while driving, but they just don’t listen.
They don’t realize that not only are they putting their own life in jeopardy, but of others as well. A reddit user who goes by the name of “boxingdude” shared his story recently.
It was a rainy day, and he was going through an interstate. All of a sudden a lady driving an SUV swaps in front of him. Her maneuver was so abrupt, that he could have collided straight into her SUV and suffered some serious injuries.
So, in order to reduce the damage, he laid his bike down to slide to a stop! As he lied on the highway, struggling to get his Harley-Davidson up, a state trooper stopped. The cop asked him if he was okay. Just as the biker gives him a nod in the affirmative, the cop chases down this stupid lady, who was apparently talking on the phone!
Once he catches up to her, he orders her to stop there. The cop then came back to the biker, and gave him some rain gear. Turns out, on non-rainy days, he is a motorcycle cop. He then asks the crashed rider to follow him to the lady’s SUV.
He, now, gets the lady out. Has her get drenched in rain. And then takes her case. He then gave her a 4-point $300 ticket. The biker writes:
“He makes the lady get out of the car, gets her thoroughly soaked, and chewed her a new a****** for making me crash.”
And then, he asked her to apologize to the biker. He even let the biker keep the rain gear!
What an amazing cop! The biker writes:
“My appreciation for the cops went waaaaay up that day.”
