I’ve been driving for 16 or 17 years now. I’ve never had a wreck and was a very good, defensive minded driver until a few weeks ago. That’s when I had my first wreck when someone wanted to turn right but couldn’t make up his mind. I was approaching from directly behind and saw what he was doing and bet on him making the turn. At the last moment, he stopped his truck and I hit the breaks, smashing my passenger quarter pannel on his bumper.
I’m getting a new car soon and don’t care to get the one I have fixed. So I’m riding around with a smashed up car and I’ve noticed something. When people see your car in such a state, they let you go first. This is very cool and I don’t care any more if I actually do hit someone’s car. It’s like liberty.
