Insurance should file a claim against the driver on behalf of everyone else who pays into the pool.

Texting drivers are more dangerous than drunk drivers.   They're everywhere, all the time, and they have no clue once they are distracted.

It looks like the tree bent over a bit and lifted one corner of the car till the center of gravity was over the tires on the other side of the car.

And I would say most drunk drivers tend to drive 5 miles below the speed limit, both hands on the wheel and looking everywhere due to the fear of getting caught.

My parents owned 2 Corvairs - the later model with the modified suspension.  Dad said they were among the best cars he'd ever owned. Even the early models were fine if you knew how to drive them, but the rear-wheel oversteer condition wasn't something that most American drivers had ever encountered.

I have this crazy idea for a device to help prevent texting while driving accidents. It works by requiring both of the driver's hand to be occupied for proper operation.

Like most safety devices, it is not 100% effective, as some will choose to circumvent the device's functionality, but those people are dumb.

I have known some teenagers who probably wouldn't shift until they finish their text. RPMs be damned.

I am so sick of all this instant reply crap that we have these days. I am honestly thinking of going back to a non smart phone. I dont need to google everything in my life. And if you want to converse with me then CALL ME.

I'm all for stopping people from texting while driving but this is not a good example why it's wrong. There is no way that anybody that bad at driving wasn't going to wreck their car with or without a cell phone.

I'm going to go out on a limb here, but I would think that in 99.99% of accidents, a driver did something wrong to cause it

But if I only text you, then I have time to think of the perfect witty line or snappy comeback!  How else can I edit my words, since my brain-mouth filter is broken?

You should keep a pair of diving goggles and a snorkel on you for just such an occasion. It would be surreal as hell to see a diver banging on your car door. "Wait, am I underwater?"

My first car in high school was my folks' Plymouth Arrow, and at time the rear-wheel drive seemed like a feature...at least handy for peeling backward out of Milwaukee snowdrifts.  Still, have to wonder what my mom's expected outcome was.

I've done that, and removed mirrors with a well placed kick. I stopped when it occurred to me that no matter how big I am, their vehicle is always bigger than me, and that's what they're going to hit me with. I know from personal experience that while a minivan is kind of a pussy vehicle, it still sucks to take one to the head.

Driver Michael Woody climbed out of the car safely following the crash and told responding officers that his only impairment was his cell phone ... he was texting while driving, something that is now illegal in Florida.

At first I wondered how he could text at all while turning a corner.

Then I realized he probably was driving an automatic, and even if not this could be what happens when someone tries to text, turn and shift all at once.

It's a perfect example of just how incredibly distracting an activity texting is.

This douchenozzle wasn't even aware of the fact that his car was pointed at a telephone pole, 30 degrees off the intended direction of travel. I don't care how bad a driver someone is, they aren't going to make that mistake without being impaired in some way.

Glad to see that you can roll a Grand Am at such low speeds. I own 2 of them.

The problem with this is, every moron who texts and drives thinks they're to good at it for anything like this to happen to them.

Do you have any idea how often people do text while driving?  It's a lot.  Do many of them drive this poorly? No otherwise your commute would be much more interesting.  This isn't so much a case of texting while driving as it is a case of driving while stupid.

You don't need a smart phone to text. Pretty much all phones made since the mid 90's are capable of SMS texting. You just have to use the number keys to enter the letters. I doubt you can even buy a phone these days that doesn't have SMS & Internet capabilities.

CSB time:

When I was a teenager, my next-door neighbor's daughter - cute, blonde and dumb as a post - had some sort of sporty Dodge coupe. The tachometer was indicated in RPMx100, not x1000 like normal today. One afternoon, I rode with her to the corner stop-and-rob and she commented that her car was a piece of shiat. Wouldn't go over 50, she said.

Because she was looking at the tach.

/lots of speeding tickets
// she blew that engine up eventually
/// we're still friends today

On the interstate Sunday, there was a big old Caddy that I was passing.  I noticed something funny, turned my head, and the lady driving it was messing with some bright-green transparent plastic stencil stuff.  Like what you'd use in the 80s to draw sign waves, flowchart symbols, etc - except really big.  Macrame or something?

Anyways, I rapidly pulled away from her before she caused a clusterfark accident.
