    The posting of a video showing the guy's license plate is dangerous.  Who knows what crazies will look it up and try to find this guy?

    Also, anyone know the law in DC on something like this?  Considering he stopped after the crash, did he do anything illegal?  Or is this just like hitting a jaywalker or a cyclist running a red light, where as long as the driver pulls over and remains at the scene, there is no citation?

    Given that this guy may have done nothing wrong, it's unacceptable to be posting his license plate and picture.  And remember there are two sides to every story.  What if he was trying to get home to his daughter because the babysitter can't stay past a certain hour?  What if he needed to get to the hospital?  There's a reason we have laws, and blocking exits is illegal.
