I was hit by a car last night.
It wasn't too bad. At first, I thought I just bruised my hand. The old lady that hit me was kind enough to make sure I was OK.
Since there was no big trouble, I let it go and just asked her to be careful for bicyclists in the future.
At the same time, I made note of her license plate number.
Then, after she took off, and I tried to ride away, I noticed that my handlebar stem was broken in half.
I think she should pay for the new stem. That's all I want. I don't think this needs to be a big deal or make her get a ticket.
What do I do now? Do I call the cops and make a report? How do I find out who the driver was in order to ask for compensation?
