Default What NOT To Say When YOU Rear-End Somebody!

The wrong thing to say when you rear-end somebody is "Gee, that's not so bad"...especially when the person you hit is carrying a concealed weapon...

So I'm driving down the road, listening to the radio, trying to track down some VHT caliper paint, when traffic ahead of me comes to a stop. I come to a stop, and immediately look in the rearview mirror to see a maroon Impala bearing down on me, with the elderly driver looking down at his lap. I immediately know that he's not going to stop, and there's nothing I can do about it...it's like watching a train wreck. At the last second he looks up, and smacks right into the back of my car. I pull into a parking lot right off of the roadway, and he follows me in. We get out, and he walks up to the back of my car and says "Gee, that's not so bad". At that point, I had to turn and walk away. I went and sat in my car for a few minutes, made a couple phone calls, and then was able to get out and talk to him without actually tearing his head off. The guy is 83 years old...nobody hurt, other than my blood pressure.

As you can see, the driver's side exaust has been pushed in and to the right. I just got off of the phone with his insurance company...It will take up to 2 business days for one of their adjusters to call me. I can't do anything with the car until then...

Don't mind the dirty car...that's what happens when you get 4 straight weeks of rain. We have sunshine tomorrow, and then rain for the next 5 friggin days.

Sorry Hawaii about the damage to your nice Machine.
My worst nightmare is being rear ended (and I don't mean a thunder shot)




But on the bright side "Gee, that's not so bad"

I got a voicemail from the guys son, he wants me to call him. I'm sure he's wondering if we can settle outside of insurance...I'm not even going to return the call.

Why don't you see what he has to say? You don't have to settle, just because he asks. He may only be handling his fathers affairs.

I'm so sorry to read about this Officer!

Any bruise to our beloved cars whether big or small. STILL HURTS and Pisses US off!!!

I'm happy to know at least the other driver was not going faster and did not cause more damage. I hope it all works out for you.

Sorry to hear bro. Do what you feel comfortable with but either way you should take it to a place you want to if that becomes part of the discussion.

Yeah I didnt mention that either. This could have been soooo much worse. I had a friend in HS who was rearended. He was sitting at a light and some lady going 55-60mph slammed right into him. He almost died. So Im sure everyone here is glad it was only a fender bender.

Default Re: What NOT To Say When YOU Rear-End Somebody!

Thanks guys, I know it's minor but it still PISSES ME OFF.... I've only got 32k miles on the car, and not a ding on it. I park as far away as I can whenever I go anywhere and take all precautions to keep it looking good. Then this idiot has a case of "anal/cranium inversion" and whacks me!

I called his insurance company (AAA), and they started a claim. I also called his son...he wants to handle it outside of insurance... I'm not playing that game...
I told the son that I've already talked to his insurance company, and he said "Oh, OK, I guess I'll let them handle it then". Dude, I'm not driving a 12 year old cavalier!
AAA told me it would be up to 2 business days for an adjuster to get back to me. I had to adjust my belts this afternoon, and I crawled back under the car while I had the front end up...the driver's muffler is definitely shifted and twisted. I'm going to jack up the back of the car tomorrow and take a look and see if there's any other damage.

As far as what the other driver was doing looking down...I have no idea...
I don't think he was texting, but who knows?

I called the dealership where I bought it...they don't have a body shop, but gave me the number of the shop they use. It's the same place I took my wife's Altima when it got hit. They have lifetime warranty on their work, so I guess I'll take it there. The dealership said that the body shop will get the car to them to have the exhaust fixed, so I don't have to worry about it.

I'm wondering if they are going to cut me a check, or just have me take it in and pay the bill?

As stated, I know a lot of you guys have had much worse damage...I'm glad everybody is OK, and I know it could have been much worse. Luckily I stood on the brake when I knew the crash was imminent, which kept me from smacking the person in front of me...wouldn't that have been the icing on the cake!

Lastly, No, I didn't tell him I was a police officer...no reason to even get into it. The P/O who took the report knew. I didn't talk much to the other driver...wasn't in the mood.

Glad your ok and its sucks. WHile the damage looks insignificant the exhaust bend and the fact that it will stick out like an eye sore to us makes it bad. AAA isn't a terrible company to work with but make sure you take it where you want. Don't use their repair shop suggestion unless it happens to be the one you want. Also make sure they are aware of the exhaust damage. If you happen to have before and after pics have them ready for the adjuster. It will help. Good luck settling up with them.
