I'm age 60 and have been driving since 12. Yeh...that's right 12 !!!! This was the first accident I caused --- * I'm cursing my boss for this one ! She calls me in for snow removal after the snow is sticking. I've explained to her MANY times previously....this is too late + dangerous for me. She doesn't want to pay me any extra O.T. --- and I've said, "I won't charge you, if i arrive early...only when I start to shovel." I commute 45-50 mins to work on a clear day. I get about 6 miles from home and the roads are REALLY BAD. I've got 50 yds ahead to a red light + a car sitting at the light. Light changes.......I'm doing 30 mph ( at most ) on a flat straight away. Car at green light doesn't move.......doesn't move.....doesn't move... finally, I have to hit my brakes.........and I'm on solid ice..... IN SLOOOOOOWWWWW motion I smack into this guy's rear end. * Cop was right there --- ( in hindsight I realize - the cop must know this is a bad accident spot ) I ask cop "Aren't you going to ask me what happenned ?" He said, "I saw it....you were probably going too fast." I said "Too fast for road conditions BUT NOT SPEEDING and did you see the guy was stopped under a green light ?" * Just then A truck wipes out a road sign + spins --- exactly where my car slid. * Anyhow, Can I dispute this cop's version if his report says I was speeding ? ( hey...I know i ain't gonna win.....and i did hit the other guy. My new car front bumper cracked ....but it could have been much worse. * I'm just pissed at my boss I called her from the accident + told her about it. I missed the next day of work with a sore ankle + she NEVER has asked me about the accident or my ankle. Can we say "bitch ?" * I'll NEVER do this again ! I'll sit in front of her BEFORE the snow begins ! * I can't believe how much adrenaline I had pumpin' thru me when the cop asked for license + registration. WHAT A RUSH !!! I told him "Sorry. I'm really AMPED right now !" I didn't even feel my sore ankle until later.
