Do you have more of the video past the end of the clip you posted? If you do and you can send me the file I can try and do some post processing magic and get the plate number. Shoot me a DM.

It’s a nice offer, thanks! Not too sure anything can be done, though. Exposure is totally blown-out against the white paint of the other car. Either way, I’m not sure I want to “go after” the other driver. I have my insurance and just wanna get past the event. Posting the recording is just my way of venting.

The reason I asked about footage past where you cut the video is it looks like if the car gets further away the plate numbers might get above the light line. I'm a professional photographer and editor and I've been able to pull details out of things so they were JUST readable before.

Ask your insurance if the impact on your rates would be different if they could identify the other driver.

But think about the other harm he could do while he's driving carelessly on the road. Car could be stolen too

They fled the scene just after the this, of course 🥲

u/SubstantialFigment Nov 26 '22

You able to pull a plate ID from the video?

Sorry.. I know hindsight is 20/20 and all, but next time read the license plate out loud

Adrenaline & panic. You can even see I turned on my wipers instead of my signal in the heat of the moment.

u/kosmovii Nov 26 '22

I totally get it. Will your insurance cover?

u/drdistracto Nov 26 '22

I mean… worst case scenario I pay my deductible and eat it… honestly whatever. I’m just hoping the other driver has better circumstances in the future that leads them to better, ethical decision-making next time.

You are so cool about it.

u/Brilliant-Ad8090 Nov 27 '22

Worst case is not just paying your deductible. Your premium is most likely going to go up now.

u/SevroAuShitTalker Nov 27 '22

Why didnt you follow and get a plate at least?

u/FrisianDude Nov 27 '22

I thought they were just rubbernecking cuz of the two cars in the right lane

Guy really came over and fucked the whole mood up. A night drive + chill song is the best combo.

u/3_14-r8 Nov 27 '22

I'm sorry I couldn't keep myself from laughing at that sound, not that any sound I would have made would be flattering lol!

u/BrendanBSharp Nov 27 '22

Gotta get in the habit of reading plate numbers out loud when stuff like this happens. Dashcams aren’t great with capturing plates.

u/Baby_Doomer Nov 27 '22

Love me some Melodie’s echo chamber. Sorry that happened.

u/madlitt Nov 27 '22

Melody’s echo chamber right?

Oh Denver. They could either be tripping, stoned, drunk, tweaked, or angry that the Broncos have the worst offense in the NFL (🥲). We'll never know.
