It *was* a miracle, Kadosh. Of course, you can't see the damage from the side from that perspective, but it looks bad. The only people who usually come out of accidents like this with minor/ no injuries are drunk. Real drunk. Not older.
Lord Willing, I'll never have to see another truck wreck.

All of the damage was to the front of the car back to the firewall as she broadsided the semi trailer. She was going about 30 MPH and the semi was going 50. Both airbags deployed. I guess the lack of serious injury is a testament to the safety features built into cars these days.

I don't know. DH is a bodily injury adjuster (past 5 yrs, property/ casualty since 1976 with on call- 18 wheelers, about 50 to 70% of the time). A lot of people only have injuries from their airbags deploying and not that many saves. I guess it depends on the accident.

I think somebody who resorts to tailgating has already lost sight of why they even bothered to get in the car. They are going somewhere, for whatever reason, but the reason just seems to be lost before they arrive.

So the other day I was pulling out of my neighborhood, and there was a long line of cars behind the car coming into my neighborhood. Perfect opportunity for me to go right? Not according to somebody who immediately started tailgating as soon as I got out on the room, because they wanted the road all to themselves and here I was getting in "their way". So I decided that is a safety violation. I stopped completely to make sure that they had to stop completely. Because anything else I do would just intensify their irrational rage. So as soon as I started moving again, they went around me in the turn lane, because that was the only right answer according to them. And they had to stop and wait at the light, so their short sightedness wasn't going to get them there any sooner. But as I followed behind them, I was watching them. They turned off into another neighborhood at the next mile street over. Why don't you start going down that street if you want to get there quicker than coming down my street and accosting me maybe even trying to kill me? They were not where they belonged and got mad at me because I was going to be in their way, "not where I belonged", according to them.

They definetly needed to give up the keys...

it's straight scary, it's like being on a roller coaster!

Same with my grandpa (papa)

He should not be driving

Last time I visited him in Florida I was laughing because he rattle can spray painted his car from all the shit he’s hit  Chuckle makes me laugh but really it’s not funny

We went out to dinner and after we got home I came outside about an hour later and his car was still running. He never turned it off. Facepalm

I remember very well when my Dad ran a red light or two and never saw it, so that's when we took his keys away. as I get older, I understand more and more how it is wondering "how you'll get buy" when you are to old to drive and do many things, hopefully i am a LONG ways from that, but I am not a spring chicken either!

My mother is 87 and still driving. She also thinks she is a realtor. She was for years. She can fool most people, who still think she is with it! LOL!
