Is it ok to ask another driver if you hit there truck when you know you didn’t just to have peace of mind?

Some wild posts here lately.

If you know you didn't why ask? Pretty sure they would say something if you did, most drivers aren't going to let it slide.

Asking for a friend?

This is a bizarre question for sure.

The only way I would ask is if I wasn't sure. That's honestly one of my biggest worries out here is that one day I'll bump a truck, or a trailer and not realize it and get charged with leaving the scene of an accident. If you are sure you didn't hit it, then don't worry about it.

Well, this is interesting. For what would be apologizing? "Sorry that I non-hit hit your truck?"

Sorry, I had it in my mind that you asked if it is ok to apologize. My brain is scrambled right now.

You can only hit something and not realize it by not paying attention. So, pay attention and even if you misjudge the distance or some other kind of mistake, you won't leave because you didn't notice. Also, you will be able to feel it and hear it, even if it's just a minor bump.

My advice would be to have a bunch of flyers printed up that say “Did I hit your truck? If I did, here is my name, company name and my phone number. And I DID NOT hit you and leave the scene.”

Then give every driver you encounter a copy or tape it to any and every drivers side window.

Just to be safe, always cover your butt.
