    I can't see why ppl have to text. Text msgs don't disappear if u don't reply asap. Even I ignore all calls or txts when they come while driving. Then again, the former is because I haven't gotten my full license yet so I won't attempt anything stupid either.

    I can't stand people who take a week to reply to a text and don't answer their phone, same way I can't stand not replying to a text quickly or answering the phone, if not phoning them right back after I missed it :wanker:

    Just pull over :eek:

    The thing about driving is, after you've drive so many years, you don't have to think about it.How many of you have went from point A to point B and went " wow I don't even remember most of the trip-it was like the car went by it's self"
    I guess you have to remind yourself to stay focused.
    Police showed up this morning measuring skid marks, and investigating.I guess the officer is in serious condition but had surgery last night.The guy didn't know many more details.
    Have a good weekend all, be safe :)

    A co-worker of mine this past Monday was in a serious accident when a guy in a mercedes ran a stop sign. My co-worker ended up hitting him on the side and got deflected into a stopped tractor trailer. The other guy's excuse: he was in a hurry to get to work which was right in that area. He didn't want to stop, was was stopped courtesy of my co-worker.

    My co-worker, fortunately, only has a sprained wrist and is sore, but alive and otherwise okay. He was pretty shaken up, but he came back to work in good spirits, most likely thankful it wasn't worse. All because of a guy who simply didn't want to stop.

    I swear that it seems like everyone on the road does 5mph+ the speed limit no matter how high it is. People will flip you off for doing the limit on the highway.

    Well done, your helping I bet was greatly appreciated. Other people may have frooze up, or just watch it, but you lent your hand to help another in need. If only the world was filled with more people like you then it would be a much better place to live in.

    Now sit back and have a digital pint on me :cheers:

    I got into a really bad accident this summer.

    Let me tell you first hand, it's people like you (the OP) who are amazing people, as well as all the medical people.

    I don't know how you guys do it. I am a measly computer scientist.

    Wow, and I thought I was special because I helped out at the scene of an accident. :p

    Earlier this summer I was driving down a 2 lane country highway with a ditch and fields on both sides, there was a car behind me. I was going a bit over the speed limit (90 km/h, normal for this road) and the guy behind me decided to pass me. While he was passing me I saw oncoming traffic not too far away and got that "oh ****, something bad's gonna happen" feeling, I was right. I tried slowing down to make the pass easier for him but just as he got out in front of me, still in the opposite lane, he slammed on the brakes, locked up the wheels, spun 90 degrees and went off the road. I stopped instantly and ran over to the side of the road to see if he was alright, I found the car upside-down facing the opposite way we were driving. I called 911, told them what happened and where, and by the time I turned back to the car the guy got out. Just to be on the safe side, I crawled into the car and took the keys out of the ignition because I saw some smoke and stuff. It was a mess in there, blood was all over the roof and almost every interior panel in front of the driver, and there were just a bunch of interior panels lying around. Luckily the driver wasn't bleeding too badly and was fully conscious.

    I guess I'm good in stressful situations like this, because I just ran to the car right as it happened while my mom and gf just kinda stared in shock.

    Oh and deltatux, speed limit is 70 in rural areas if there's no sign. :)

    Whats really amazing is how many people have never actually learned HOW to pay attention to everything thats going on around them. Many "space" off, i'm sure most everyone is guilty of that at least now and then. I had to force myself to learn by being conciously aware of everything around me and after a while, it became second nature, i even check my mirrors every 5-8 seconds without realizing it. all cdl drivers are suppose to do the "smith" system, which takes alot of getting used to.

    Thats why i think all driver education students should have to take something similar to CDL training just in order to drive, without the heavy trucks of course, you can learn alot of tools to make you a better driver beyond what little they teach in drivers ed to 15 year olds..c'mon now. Plus re-take the course every 5 years cause theres seriously too many people out there that literally do not know how to drive a vehicle properly and safely.

    edit: almost forgot, good job palerider, hope there are citizens like you if i'm ever in a wreck, i keep recalling that video of that guy that got hit by a car and everyone ignored him, even walked around him as he layed there dieing.
