I'm so sorry Cindy! Do you have a red car/truck? I had a red car once and it was always being wrecked. I saw a report once on insurance that red cars were hit more than any other color. I don't know if this was because there were more red cars at the time or what .

Really?! I thought red cars were supposed to be faster!
Sucks about your car. Hope the insurance works out OK.

I used to have a car (Buick) like that. It never happened when I was driving it, but my mom, brother, and sister all got hit while driving it on separate occasions. After the third time, my parents insisted that I get rid of it. It was a strange beige color, and people apparently didn't "see" it. Either that, or it was "jinxed", as my mom always claimed.

Oh no that sucks, I work in a body shop and I see wrecked cars all the time...of all different colors

Oh, geez, I'm sorry! I've gotten into the habit of if I'm approaching a yellow at any speed (and not slowing down waaaaay ahead of time so the jer---, er "person" behind me sees brake lights go on) of giving a quick look-see in the rear-view mirror. If there's nobody back there, I stop. If there's somebody back there (and it doesn't look like anybody's going to jump the light going the other way) I go. Of course it helps if you've got about 6 extra pairs of eyes .

Think of it this way. As you look in your rear view mirror you realize that you are watching a horror story unfolding on the worlds smallest screen and YOU are the star in THAT movie! Not sure if that helps or not but after my rear ender and being a star I came to this conclusion.

That sucks Cindy!
Are you sure there isn't a "Hit me in the rear!" bumper sticker back there!

Oh, ouch! At least you can laugh about it. What I did to my van today was ALL my fault, so I'm not finding much humor in my situation just yet. I was going to ask if you had a "hit me" sticker back there, as well!

Oh Cindy - I do remember! That's a bummer!

I hope you're ok! I got rear ended once and it made a mess of my neck for a year and a half. You need a bumper sticker that says "Go ahead and make my day, I need someone to sue!" That would make them think twice :-)

Sorry to hear about your neck. Goodness that would be a funny bumper sticker!

well this is the first time my dad has bought a black car and he cannot stop scratching it!!!
He has always had this silvery blue colour and nothing ever happened to them!

Man you'd think people would open their eyes, don't you? I was going to say you can't really miss a car that size.... but obviously she didn't miss, that being the point

Hope you are ok Cindy!

Look at it this way. Your big honkin' SUV is probably damaged far less seriously than the car that rammed into you.
post #18 of 24
Cindy as long as your ok thats the main thing!
post #19 of 24
That sure is a string of bad vechicle luck!!, I'm so glad that you are ok though

The only thing I heard about "Red" is that the birds are attracted to "red"

LMAO, fun thing is, she was driving the same vehicle, different year and color...mines black, hers was red.......lol


Not funny part is that every part of my back and shoulders are killing me today! Dr said all's ok, just strained.

That reminds me of a story that was posted in our graduating year book in high school.

A girl in our year had backed her Mum's car out of the driveway - unfortunately not realising that her sister's car was parked behind hers

The caption in our year book was:

`Amanda should not drive her mother's car. Especially into her sister's'.

It was great!!

Sarah, that is great!

Awww...I'm sorry to hear it. I've been rear-ended before at a red light...it ain't fun. People really don't pay enough attention, and REALLY shouldn't assume the people around them are going to do something...they should just pay attention!

Hope you're ok!!
