Iím embarrassed to admit that I smashed a side mirror reversing out of my garage. A two second lapse in concentration shattered my mirror and my nerves for the rest of the day. Donít get me wrong, it could have been worse, but it did get me thinking.
Have you ever been in a car accident? Were you at fault or was it somebody elseís?
I also grabbed his P plate off his car and tossed it.
He had to go get it.
He needed to have a wake up call.Could have been a young Mum and Baby
who he hit.I don't believe anyone should have a licence till 21.
I have seen horrific things, with young people and accidents.
I've been in a few crashes, always in winter. I flipped my first car when I was 19 after sliding through some slush on the road, I lost it on some ice in my first new car when I was 24 which did about 3 grand worth of damage to the front fender and my last accident was almost 5 years ago, I was driving an F-150, lost it on some ice again and t-boned a Hummer. Neither myself, nor the driver of the Hummer were seriously injured, we were both really lucky.
Yes I have. I car broke through the stop light and slammed into the car door I was sitting at. I was in disbelief more than anything else. That was the first time I've ever been so close to death in all my memory.
Lol - I ripped a mirror of my Dad's car too when I was still learning. That was a costly mistake. Have been driving a while and sadly hit a couple of times. Not fun at all. Once was on a freeway and my friend was driving. We hit a car coming the other way. We were so lucky all of us made it out alive.
Why is it a nasty question, Finy?
It's asked hundreds' of times a day by various official channels!
Is it too 'close to the bone' for you, & brings back a horrible circumstance? If so, that's what's nasty...... memories', NOT the asking of the question!
Not of my own but I was with my dad when a car went through a stop sign and ploughed into us. I was 14 and it scared me so badly I wandered off. Somehow I ended up at a friend's place and her parents took me home. I must have been in shock I suppose. I only remember the awful noise of it. We were both unharmed as he hit just behind the driver's door. Phew.
