Q: Can we sue someone for scaring us by a car?

I work in the traffic department as a traffic controller as they are no signals i have to stand in the middle of the street and guide ways to the cars. Once i was doing my job a car on purpose came fast as if he was about to hit me, neither he was going straight or left he was coming were i was standing, then he took a sharp left turn. I know that he was doing this on purpose because he and his friends were laughing at me.

A: Did you report him to the police? Seems it violates several code sections. Can you sue him? Technically yes, but as that type of case is frowned on by the Courts I doubt it. If you have ptsd then see about having it documented.
