o, i thought it was something serious....lol not to sound like a jerk or anything. just give a big enough space between you and the car in front in you, thats what i usually end up doing around here. and dont fiddle with anything while driving, which i hope you weren't doing. the first time you hit something sucks i know, but if you think about it its just a car. dont take it too seriously, yea its our babies but there isnt much you can do after unless getting in a serious wreck. i have a whole list of damage to my car that i cant fix cause its nothing insurance worthy

1.two dings in the drivers side from slipping and falling on ice (knees to the door)
2. scratch from lawn mower into the front bumper
3. freaking trash falling out of a trash truck (i was a lane and 4 car lengths over for crying out loud)
4. backed into a lady while backing out of a parking lot ( you couldn't see anything coming out so i figured i was clear and bam i hit her tire. barely noticeable scratch)
5. backed into a friends car when i was late to fire duty(moved too quickly didn't catch the car from backing up while going from reverse to first. barely noticeable scratch)
6. backed into my garage (my depth perception sucked that day )
7. apparently there's a dent in my ford emblem in the front
8. i guess people are keying my car.
9. curbed all my wheels on 4 seperate occasions (they were all because of u-turns )

yea, i take care of my car as best as i can but its inevitable to mess up sometimes. dont get me wrong i was mad but i got over it quick. i still get compliments it so im not bummed. its funny because when i had the cobra it never happened (and this was 3 years ago. im 20 now haha)

It sucks to get into accidents, believe me they really do. I have only had 2 accidents in my life (27 years old) and both were in my Focus and BOTH I got rear ended while sitting at a stop light. First one was around 5-7mph and did about $4500 in damage, would have been $700 if she had hit 5 inches to the left. And my second one was when I got ran into by a truck that slipped on wet road during our first rain in 7 months, $600 in damages.

It can always be worse, was I pissed? You better believe I was pissed it's my baby. But no one was hurt and a car can be repaired, you can do what I did and simply upgrade instead of repairing. Get a coupe bumper to replaced the damaged one.

Glad to hear it wasn't too bad and no one was hurt.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now for my accident pics from a year ago.





The entire thing turned out to be a 4 car collision, an old lady (81 I think) hit the wrong pedal and split the lanes hitting 3 other cars. It doesn't look like too much damage to my ride but once they got the bumper off we found out the rear quarter panel was toast, she missed my crash bar by 2 inches and went into the panel. That quarter panel goes from the rear bumper ALL THE WAY to the hood, it's a beast and for some reason isn't separated anywhere else.

She then bounced off me, hit a brand new Mitsubishi SUV with paper plates, both quarter panels, and both doors had a BIG scratch/dent from where her mirror was, came back over and killed my mirror, and then hit a honda civic in front of me.

When the cop showed up to do the report he took one look around and called 2 more units to get all the angles covered. Silly side note none of the cops knew my car was a Focus, they had to ask!
