Hats off to the taxi driver in this video. This guy is pretty dang brave. To be honest with you, if put in the exact same situation, I’m not sure that I wouldn’t have just written the license plate number down and let insurance handle it after the hit-and-run driver drove off. I mean, you never know who you’re dealing with, and this took place in Chicago, which has gotten a bit of a reputation in recent years for violence. But this taxi driver didn’t care about any of that, and it’s not like this taxi driver is a young man in prime physical condition. He still didn’t let that stop him from standing up to the bad guy. We need more people like him in this world.
Here’s the scene: a driver in a black SUV crashes into a taxi and then tries to drive off. The taxi driver was having none of that. He gets out of the taxi and confronts the SUV, threatening him with some sort of short, blunt, club-like object. The taxi driver won’t let the SUV pass. Finally the driver gets really panicky, kind of like an animal that realizes it’s been corralled, and starts driving forward and backward erratically, crashing into several other cars. It turns out that the SUV was stolen, hence its driver’s preference to dip out following the initial crash. You’ve got to watch this footage below. If you like the video, ‘Share’ it.
