On the evening of Oct. 8, I was driving home after completing my shift at Windsor Regional Hospital.

Near the intersection of Wyandotte St. East and Riverdale Avenue, a black Dodge Ram threw a number of eggs and assorted materials on my windshield, temporarily blinding me.

Luckily, I was able to avoid any serious accident as I stopped just short of a light pole on the corner sidewalk.

I regained my composure and began following the same vehicle which then escaped me at high speed. I obtained the license number of the vehicle and gave it to Windsor police with whom I lodged a formal complaint.

I gave the police the vehicle description, the license plate number and a full account of the incident.

The physical damage was chipped paint on the hood of my new vehicle purchased just weeks earlier.

Nevertheless, the sheer thoughtlessness and willingness to senselessly endanger an innocent driver was reason enough for me to pursue the matter with police.
