    Default waht a way to end my 18th birthday, fixing someones body.

    after smoking a mustang GT, i was cruizing downtow with my buddy and another friend who was in his v8 rx7. so we are coming northbound on 1st SE, 1 way and we get to the c-train tracks like this...

    Me, focus, rx7

    i launch from 4 and spin the tires.

    my friend says i'm in the turn lane. i thought it was only me with a turn lane (nope, dual turn lane), so i thought i'll go straight, illegal, but no cops. light goes green, i roll forward (about a quarter throttle) and see a cement barrier, then the focus in front of me. it was turning from the second turn lane that i didn't notice.

    bump.

    a stream of curses and insuts come from her mouth, so i pull over, and appolagize, she keeps going and my friend (6'4 255 lbs) says "shut the fock up, it was an accident" she shuts up, i see the damage, twoonie siced dent above driver rear wheel, my paint rubbed on her bumper with a couple small chips.

    her passangers are fine, but one tried to get us to admit to drag racing, saying that he respected the fact that we were doing it (right, cause i was born yesterday). she got my info, i'll call her tommorow. she wants to take it to insurance.

    where should i suggest she go? what can i do to keep it out of insurance? it looks like she only needs the bump popped out, and the bumper resprayed. the same passenger said "looks like a new bumper". tool.

    just tell her you'll settle it outside insurance, it doesn't matter if she goes through insurance or not, you just have to pay her insurance company and that'll work out as well. you have all her information right? just give her insurance company a call and ask them about it, then give your own insurance company a call let them know that this has happened but you've decided not to go through insurance.

    You also should never say sorry at an accident. They'll take that and make you at fault for everything. And they may even twist the word 'sorry' in any police report.

    I've witnessed a few close calls downtown with the same scenario as this... unfortunately, you actually smoked someone. No offense, but even if it wasn't dual turns, its pretty dumb to just go straight without checking if there are other cars. You were in a turn only lane, and they are marked as such for a reason.

    Yah, no offence but you fall into the stupid driver category. Like the drivers they feature on TLC specials, ie. backing up on a highway to get onto an off ramp. You should have just made the left turn and legally and SAFELY turned around somewhere else.

    not the jetta, the daytona, and i believe it was a 4.6 mustang.

    the jetta isn't moving, it is getting a new clutch in vulcan (long story).

    usually i would be paying more attention, but i was tired as hell, and just wasn't paying attention. how many of you can say that you are paying full attention to the road all the time. i'm not one of the only people on this board to get into an accident, i have read about others.
