So, as I mentioned in the Pit, I was involved in a fender bender tonight. Without going into how much fault I think I have (just in case of the exceedingly unlikely event the other guy’s insurance company somehow finds this), I feel bad that it happened, especially since my car is much older than his and got away with a lot less damage.
Friends say that accidents do happen, and people get lapses of attention or panic and this is human. I know this intellectually, but it’s still a bit difficult for me to process still in the “heat of the moment.”
So I was wondering what Dopers’ experiences were like. How many of y’all have never had any fault whatsoever in any car-related accident you’ve been involved in? How long have you been driving and how much do you usually drive?
