this is pissing me off so much because I never lie because I hate, hate, hate liars but I will try to calm down to explain the situation. On Wednesday I was driving myself to class and I was driving on a 55 mph highway and the lane next to me was going the opposite way at 55 mph and a driver of a large, white SUV was going the wrong way and was going to hit my small, Toyota scion. I hit the brakes as hard as I could and swerved out the way. At this point I am driving my car on the far, far left side of the road and there is a possibility I hit the metal guardrail. I didn't get out to check right away because I was late to class. Now my dad thinks I am lying and that I hit someone's car in the parking lot because he believes that there would've been more damage if I hit the metal railing at 55 mph. (the most damage my car has now is ripped off paint) that argument is invalid because I was not going 55 mph again I hit the brakes and swerved out of the way. I wish I was able to get a license plate number so that driver can have reckless driving on their record but it happened so fast.
I don't think he will say it to my face but something is telling me that he believes I am lying about almost getting in a head on collision for attention. I have a small car if that SUV hit me I would not be here and he does not sound upset that I almost got into what would have been an awful car accident. Literally the next day when I got home from school he got my mom to say that the school has security camera footage of me hitting someone's car and that I have a court date to get me to confess. That didn't work because I denied it right away and I asked to see the footage. He is still trying to get me to confess.

"there is a POSSIBILITY I hit the metal guardrail"
In other words you are admitting that you don't know if you hit the guardrail. I believe the part about the SUV and swerving out of the way. But I 100% agree that there would have been more damage if you hit a guardrail at that speed. Anything more than walking speed would have caused more than paint scratches. Even at walking speed it could cause some pretty serious scratches.
I don't know where that damage came from. You might not have been in the car when it happened. But I just don't believe it came from the guardrail at a high speed. It could have happened anywhere, maybe in a parking lot, maybe at school. School parking lots are notorious for this kind of thing. Is there any other color paint on the car, like the color of paint form another car?1
