Totaled my baby

So I totaled my Jameisha monday morning on 270 southbound. SUV in front of me all of sudden swerved into right lane and I was faced with a line of stopped traffic. Slid right into a volvo. She lost a bumper, my front end was smashed in completley. Airbag came out but I hit my head on the window.

Anyways, I'm looking now for either the 2003/2004 2.3 Duratec hatchback or SVT! Already found some. Jameisha had 138k on her so dunno how much I'll get from progressive. Also gotta go to court since Maryland's finest gave me a nice $130 ticket.

The helmet has a special meaning for many drivers. How important is it to you? - It protects my head.

Do you have any special rituals when the helmet is concerned like many have? - I wipe it so that I can see better.

Sounds good Shcroeder! I've been looking, thanks!

Newkleus - that's what you would think...but the statie sounded like he believed my story and that it would happen to anyone. It's state law that you hit anyone from behind it's a ticket. I always do 1 car length per 10mph and even more so on 270..it's like driving the thunderdrome everyday. The SUV cut away at the last possible second and I slammed my brakes and slid and slid and slid. I didn't hit the volvo that hard but I went underneath it. They said it sounds like the SUV wasn't paying attention and instead of slowing down cut over at the last second. Oh well.

Sorry :(.

Maryland is crazy with traffic. I was just up there this past weekend.
Time for an SVT!

I'm parting out my track built/former DD Saturn to fund my SVT focus! Can't wait.

Glad your ok.
