I know the feeling, especially when its your kid.

Last September my daughter was rear ended so hard by a van on the interstate in bumper to bumper traffic, that the license plate was touching her back seat. 2005 Honda Accord coupe, with 88,000 miles on it. I purchased the car for her only a few months before that. total loss.

A little whiplash, but these cars are lot safer with the headrests airbags etc. While we were waiting for HP, and watching many close calls by rubber necks, sure enough, a SUV rear ends a pick up truck right in front of us.

Thanks guys. Dealing with medical stuff. They hauled my car off to an insurance auction yard somewhere. My turn to deal with low offers.

Agree with you Doc. Very scary accident your daughter had Laz.

Sorry to hear and hope the son recovers quickly... I think Doc and I went back and forth on this a while back... there has to be stiffer fines and penalties but honestly, it's very difficult to observe these people from the inside of a patrol unit... really need a spotter that's watching just for that and then radio a car the color, make, mode and gender of driver/offender... like is done for the seat belt enforcement waves.. without a spotter it extremely difficult with so many other things you are watching for. I'm saying that from experience....
