I was so close to hitting a truck today :eek:
I was going 70 kph and the light just turned yellow so I started to break, but this truck just came out of nowhere right in front of me :shout: and I breaked as hard as I could but my break lost pressure or something, so I kept clicking it over and over and thank GOD it just stopped an inch before hitting him :scared: .

I bought the car a week ago and the lady said everything is fine except the break can be a problem sometimes , so my brothers car fanatics said they 'fixed' it and it worked fine except today.
I'm so glad nothing happened, oh and my phone was out of credit so If something did happen I'd be stuck in peak hour traffic, with a useless phone :o .

Have you ever been close to crashing?

I have been in 2 accidents, neither one my fault. Both times I was sitting at a stop sign and got hit from behind :fiery:

yeah, i had a bad car accident when i was 20. rear tyre blew out while i was travelling at about 60mph and the car spun off the road :eek: car was written off and my legs nearly were as well, they were trapped by the steering column. after seeing the state of the car i'm still not quite sure how i got out alive from that one. someone was watching over me that day for sure :)

been a passenger in a few minor bumps as well :lol: but nothing serious.

I was in a car accident 2 years ago, i spun around on an icy overpass, slammed into the guardrail and caused a 3 car pile up. We did a lot of screaming, but luckily neither of my friends nor i was hurt (the people in the other vehicles were also o.k). The car i'd just gotten the week before was totalled though :sad:

Last December I was driving home and stopped to turn right. As there were a load of cars traveling the other way I was stationary for 10-15 seconds when I felt a whack at the back of a car. Some drugged up dipstick "didn't see me" and was going too fast to stop so he decided to drive up onto the pavement to over take, not realising there was no room and hit the back of my car. I was shaken but there was no damage.

Fortunatly my Dad was in the car in front and the druggie shut up fairly quickly as he was hoping to pull a fast one on me. If anything it was just as well the old man was there as I'd probably have punched the druggie I was so angry

Is is really wise (or legal) to do 70km/h on a road with traffic lights?

I was only in one when I was a kid and my mum was driving, there was a pile up on the freeway and she braked in time, but the car behind us couldnt brake and hit us. I havent been in any other accidents, I'm a safe driver :angel:

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!!!

Once I was in my friends mums car and we collided with another car. It wasn't a big crash but my mouth was bleading as i wasn't wearing a seatbelt and hit my face off the seat infront. Everyone else had whiplash.

Only once and it was totally NOT my fault.

I was driving around a round about( do you guy know what that is?) anyway i was truning right so i was going roun the island and indcated right then as i passsed the last junction before the on i was turning off at i changed the indicator to left and turn off the round about. Anyway as i was going into the turning i heard th bang look in my mirror and a car has banged into the side of me.

At the time i drove a Volvo estate os the damage was limited but it cost 650 to repair of course it was totally the other drivers fault. And it was an old woman and i was so nice to her asking if she was ok about 10 times. She cut herself on the glass from her lights and i asekd if she wanted me to help and she said no she'd phone her son.

Well anyway once we sorted out the insurance things about 3 months later she tried to balem me for the accident? WTF? my thinking wss her son assumed as i was young 18 at the time it was obviously my fault.

Old people on the roads are dangerous. The other day i was on another busy roundabout and me and this other car were turning off towards this same junction and as we were going round this old man decided to coem out of his junction even though we were driving past it he almost crashed into the other car who almost crashed into me.

I have no idea what the old guy was thinking.

I have no idea what the old guy was thinking.Don't get me started. I was joining the M1 last week only to see two cars driven by elderly people REVERSING down the acsess road onto the motorway. At that point it is a single lane and very narrow so I had no option to stop on a busy roundabout to allow them to do so.

And the best part. The next junction was only a mile and a half down the road. They spent 5 minutes reversing :rolleyes:

Not yet, but I've counted and I should probably have had 4 accidents just been pure lucky with them all. Rule: Always look ahead or slow down lol.

I've been in two pretty bad ones. I was the passenger in both, which probably explains why I feel uneasy when other people are driving but love to drive myself.

Never crossed the border into Belgium, have you?

We have lots of roads with traffic lights where you're allowed to go 120 km/h. Near the traffic lights, you have to slow down to 90 km/h.

Never been involved in an accident, BTW.

and I love to drive...

I totalled my car on the A3 at 80 mph in March.

I ran into some debris that had fallen off a lorry at night and by the time I had seen it, it was too late to avoid.

Although the undercarriage of my car was taken out and one of the wheels turned on its side I walked away with no injuries apart from a bit of whiplash.

Events like that always remind me that health and life are things all too easy to take for granted.

I've been in a few in my time, though not for quite a while.

I almost died in the first one, and so did my boyfriend at the time. He broke his pelvis in two places and his window collapsed on his arm, so he needed quite a few surgeries to get all the glass out. The car had t-boned him. It wasn't a pretty sight.

I've got four or so scars on my left shoulder that will never go away, a lil one on my lip, and about eight on my legs.

How loaded must her husband have been if she was driving?

I can't stress this enough, don't drink and drive. Ever. I know, we've all done it at one time or another, even Helen herself. I briefly knew this broad about 10 years ago, sweet, nice, desperate for husband, great job. I noticed this week in a publication that she lost her professional license....because she drove drunk and killed two people, so now she's doing 5 years in jail. It's a sad mugshot. Don't drink and drive.

Poor darling. Sorry to make a joke about it before I knew the facts. :hug: I'll delete my first post on the thread.

My worst one wrote off the car I was driving but I wasn't badly hurt. My knees were smashed together by the impact and seemed to suffer more than mere bruising because they gave me some minor trouble for months. In fact I could kind of feel it for years, but that may have been psychological. Anyway, that's the worst I've ever had in a car accident ... trivial by comparison.
