    There's an obvious answer to that question, but I feel bad for Nino and don't want to inflame him... Sorry about your car, dude. How bad is your insurance going to get you?

    Sorry about the Dubz Nino. Many of you have seen my VW and if anyone hit me or anything like that I'd be mad. I've been hit many times, but mine has the invincible 80's plastic and 30 MPH bumpercar bumpers :).

    That's why I am always like a mile behind the car in front of me. Cause idiots like that lady talking on the cell and eating a big mac don't know how to drive :bag: It is amazing how much road rage I inspire. :mad:

    Cool looking passat, over here they tend to come in metalic grey, black owns!

    I'm actually working on car insurance support, booking repair budgets, talking to associate repair shops,arranging replacement vehicles (and get the most injureds as possible to our shops... :ninja: ) etc, hope the process goes fast, did she agreed to file the declaration or not?

    What do you mean by "stopped short?"

    In ohio, regarless what happens in front of you, it is your fault by means of "unassured clear distance".

    I keep a ton of distance between the cars in front of me, but have still had close calls since people are idiots.
