Cougarslair Foolishly doing a U-turn- an SUV behind me didnt notice me braking, indicating, turning. The top of the wheel was hit so it was leaning in at an angle - hence the tow. SUV only had cracked front bumper.
Never do a U-turn - with insurance youre automatically at fault if anything happens.
My focus is currently in the shop being fixed - the only good thing is that Im getting a free windows tint out of it.
Couldnt have been my old, dented, used and abused Freestar could it! No, had to be my brand new, shiny Focus.

I think I would have tried using a clay bar. They are good at removing overspray.

Yes... a shitter fell from the sky and I drove straight into it.

Wrote off my focus due to the damage.

Thankfully it was a 'new' port-o-let, and it wasnt full.
OMG. I'm sorry that happened to you, but damn do I wish I saw it!

Signs do not absolve the company of negligence...I suppose they are there to keep people from trying.
Same thing happened to my wife; a break the size of a basketball in windshield...thankfully the safety glass prevented the object form entering passenger compartment. I called trucking company; they told me to get lost.
I wound up buying a new windshield out of my pocket, and saying prayers of thanks my wife and family were unhurt.
