almost got t-boned

thank god i fixed my brakes.

i spent my morning bleeding the brakes, took them on a test drive and they worked great. then i left at 4:00PM like i always do to go get some cigarettes. i pulled up to main, looked both ways and no one was coming so i took off. looked to my left again for no apparent reason as i turned right, and saw a late-80's dodge car FLYING down the street. i used my newly working brakes to stop, he flew right past me, and almost side swipes a white SUV on the other side of the street. if i wouldnt have fixed my brakes today, im sure i would have been dead or seriously injured and the bug would be completely destroyed. he was going about 40-50MPH in a 20MPH and blew the stop sign. i chased after him to get his plate number, and the white SUV did a u-turn right in the middle of the road and joined me in the chase. infortunatly i ran out of the gas before i got his number, but the white SUV kept going so im hoping he gets it. i called the cops later and gave them the discription of the car and the guy driving it. they told me they cant do anything unless they have the plate number.

it was a late-80's dodge car, light blue with black trim, a black front bumper, and a pair of dice hanging from the rear view mirror. the guy that was driving had long-ish blonde hair, wearing a white sweater and sunglasses. i gave them that much info, yet they wouldnt tell the cops in the next town to stop him.
