Break harder, then she'll get it. She may get angry at you, so do it at your own risk.Your horror-story has gotten my girlfriend to start wearing her seatbelt more often, if she still wears it incorrectly. It really frightens me, half the time she used to just pull it out and sit on the end because she thinks it's uncomfortable to wear. And when she does actually clip it in half the time again she flips the shoulder strap behind her because - again - it's uncomfortable.
i never said i wasn'tBut you had a head on crash in a smart car, by Final Gear engineering logic you are now dead.
it was only a fiat punto... harmless!Posting while deceased is no longer the challenge it used to be.
In addition, if I recall his post correctly, he didn't hit something on par with the size of an F150 or F350, which usually results in dead Smart car occupants.
yeah neither of us had a scratch on us. The scary thing is, I had my backpack in the front seat with me. After the crash, I couldn't find it anywhere. I looked under the car and there it was. I reckon if I hadn't been wearing my seatbelt, thats where I would have been.Is that your friend walking away from the crash on the third picture?
Mostly because due to the shape, the wind tends to lift the blade away from the glass at best and rips it right off the car at worst. And nobody seems to want to buy a sedan with a roof deflector as is needed for one.My Volvo didn't feel a thing. Nothing was bent, nothing was scraped...it looked like nothing happened.
Maybe the crash could've been avoided if the my car had a rear windscreen wiper. Why do sedan cars don't have those by the way?
You don't like my Civic being rear-ended. Ok. I'll bring the pain. Here is a series of posts about my worst crash. Enjoy.Seeing the thread about that guys civic getting a little bump it made me think 'that's not a real accident'. So post your worst (pics preferebly).
Coppied from my other forum. Yes, I was hit by a truck.
This is me, I think. I was in lane 1 passing a pickup when the driver suddenly changed lanes into me, hitting me with the side of the truck. She snapped over so fast I had no time to react.

Result, my bike is fucked up an will probably be totaled since it's a '94. I broke my left arm in two places, but they are minor non-displaced fractures.
Thank Christ for gear and Tylenol 3 with codine.
I'm tired and typing with one hand sucks.
Just got the splint off today. I still have to wear it but I have to take it off 4 times a day and move may arm for 10 minutes.
What it looks like right now.Spoiler Text: (Click here to toggle display)
To put the cartilage back on the doc drilled holes in my humerus so he had a place to suture.
I don't think I've ever posted the X-Rays before, so enjoy:Good news. I just got the police report and it says
I am Party #1 and am not mentioned anywhere in the "cause" section.CAUSE:
Party #2 (P-2, Dickinson) caused this collision by driving in violation of California Vehicle code section 21658(a), which states in essence: A vehicle shall be driven as nearly as practical entirely within a single lane of travel and shall not be moved from the lane until such movement can be made with reasonable safety. P-2 could have avoided this collision by ensuring the lane left of her location was vacant and no other vehicles would be affected by her lane change.
