Re: Did he get a ticket?

it took some time to process it but I could give an accurate (in terms of details) record of the events

Was that immediately afterwards or some time later, when things had calmed some?

Many years back there was a uni lecturer giving a lecture on some subject. One of his students jumped up, yelled "You're wrong", pulled a gun and fired several times at the teacher who of course collapsed, then ran out the room. The teacher stood up and asked the students to write down exactly what happened. The details, even moments after, varied quite a bit [details as best I can remember them, maybe some 30 years ago that I read this, at least 20 years back I'm sure]

Other studies have found our memories quite unreliable, no matter how we convince ourselves otherwise :)
