Lane Merge Mod

Some absent minded doofus decided he wanted my lane while I was coming up from the next lane.. I was travelling straight at about 40mph and he was at a standstill in the turn lane. Worst part: he's a lot porter and it wasn't even his car that he crashed.

Here's the carnage:



Moral of the story: Telling them "don't do it!" from inside your car doesn't stop them from doing it..

Drive safe guys!

Wheel survived at least. Could have been worse glad nobody was hurt.

Thanks! The wheel did take some impact and it tracks a little funny on the highway. I hope they give me a new wheel and whatever else I need to get it close to where it was..

Just Don't take no for an answer. Keep an eye on the wheel bearing.

It was an involuntary mod =]

Thanks guys.. I gotta say it sure felt terrible having someone mash your baby's face in--but it's just a thing and it can be fixed.
