Default Smashed in the back again

Here we go again. This time my son, stopped waiting to turn, hit by SUV driver in back. SUV driver gets ticket, my son has concussion, car is a total.

I see drivers daily looking down while they drive. I pull over when I see it's going on behind me. I'm back driving the 89 GMC full size. It was my car that was totaled.

So glad your sons injuries weren't more serious, drivers seem to be getting worse all the time.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Distracted driving is rampant all over the world.
Thank you cell phones and drive throughs, just to name a couple of offenders.
Happy to hear your son is OK

Glad the boy is more or less OK!
The road is a dangerous by these days. I glad Calif lets me go to the front of the line when cars a lined up at stop lights. I don't like being the last one.
Good luck with the replacement car.

Very glad your Son was not hurt. I agree that driving is getting worse. I was hit by 2 young girls as I was turning into a parking lot. Turned right felt my pickup shudder and saw car parts fly by. It was her mirror that broke apart. She hit my right tire and bent my tierod. I think they were texting because they were taking selfies while we waited for PD. I was on highway they other day. look to my left and see this girl texting with both hands and holding the wheel with her legs...at 65mph. I let of the gas so she could go away. Jim

Sorry to hear, Burgerman. (I hope your son recovers completely and suffers no long term effects.)

In my opinion, "distracted driving" should come with a heavy penalty. In this country and its provinces, there are many advocates pushing to change the accepted "traffic violation" into a criminal offense. A criminal code offense in Canada is much like a felony offense in the USA and near as I can tell, both are federal charges...

Anyhow, I believe the traffic violations, "distracted driving" and "driving without due care and attention" side well with the criminal charge known as "Criminal Negligence"...

I'm with everyone above, sorry to hear about your son's accident. Like the Doc says, I hope there's no long term effects. Concussions can be bad so I hope it's a mild one.
