Yeah, I was okay, just a little sore for a few days - mostly my left shoulder.  The airbag deployed and the front end of the car absorbed the impact as it is supposed to - no damage to the interior.  What pissed me off most was that it was a nice car ('99 Civic) that I had only been driving for a couple of months. I got about $2,800. from the insurance company, but that's not enough to get another car like that.  Now I'm back to driving the old car that I was going to get rid of, though I found a Corolla that I can afford, with low miles - have to work out the details.

 
that sucks!! i love my honda civic, and i've had a couple other hondas that i loved, too. i drove a corolla for a very long time and liked it a lot as well.

I totaled my car a few weeks ago because a driver (20 year-old) ran a red light at an intersection.  There were some hedges and a slight decline on the left where she was coming from and I couldn't see here approaching; before I knew it there was a car directly in front of me.  For anyone to run a red light at that speed she had to either be entirely reckless or more likely texting (or both).   Well, it could have been much worse, at least she entered the intersection before I did, otherwise she could've slammed into my car at the driver's side door.

I have been rear-ended twice by teenage girls, I walked back to check on one and she had more electronic devices with her than a Radio Shack store room

New York Wants To Know: Have You Been Texting And Driving?

I think I could like this idea - as long as the device indicates only usage, not actual data.

We're bot pretty certain the guy who rear-ended us a few weeks ago was futzing with his phone at the time, but without a lot of legal expense, there's no way we can prove it.

In the space of thirty seconds yesterday, I saw not one but two flagrant examples of distracted driving. One clown was trying to insert ear buds into his ears that were connected to his phone, and was holding up an entire line of cars behind him since he hadn't notice the light had changed green. Seconds later, along comes another car with a driver with ear buds in holding and manipulating his phone with his hand while his eyes were fixed on it and not looking through the windshield.

If driving with your head figuratively up your ass so that you can neither see nor hear what's going on around you isn't prima facie unsafe, I don't know what is. Maybe we should take people's phones away for a year if they get caught doing something this careless. 

 
I would say that at least half of the drivers I observe around here have a phone in their hand. I'm all for almost draconian enforcement of laws that prohibit such stupidity and for riders on insurance policies denying coverage if you cause an accident while jacking with a phone. Put the goddam thing in your pocket and drive the car.

  Actually, Digi-Key catalogs make pretty good targets. Especially if you soak 'em in water first. And apparently there is an endless supply of the damn things, so hey.
