I was at an intersection on the highway. The light was yellow so I slowed down to stop and as soon as I did, the light turned red. So I'm stationary at the lights for about two seconds when suddenly I hear screaching tyres and my car is whacked and being pushed into the intersection. I saw cars coming at me but they managed to stop in time.
Now, in that situation you'd expect people to be concerned and maybe want to help me out a little since I was in shock and my car couldn't exactly move. Instead, people sat and watched, I saw one man laugh, another got angry and no one lifted a finger. The guy who hit me got out of his car and began to help me push my car off the road. After that, people clapped and started driving off. Not only was I in shock, but I felt humiliated as well.
The guy who hit me claimed that he thought I was going to go through the yellow light and changed lanes so that he could speed through. The only problem being that I stopped when it was red and he would've gone through a red light. My car was a total write-off and I had to collect the insurance money and buy another car. The damage to his car? Next to none. It had a front guard on it and was a 4WD truck of some sort. There was only a slight dent on his guard.
I have not driven on the highway since. I also refuse to drive on freeways. There are far too many careless drivers around. Since then, I've had idiots scream out in front of me when they clearly had no right of way to be doing that. I had to slam on the brakes both times and luckily I was only going 50km/hr otherwise I'd have another accident on my hands. Did either one apologize? NO! One of them gave me the finger and the other one got out of the car and started hurling abuse at me. Assholes, the lot of them!!!
