I left work early today to attend an eye appointment. As I was driving down the off ramp at my freeway exit a big green truck rear-ended me. OMGosh, this has happened 6 times in the 6 years I have been working at my present job. Can we not drive in the city?
I sheepishly include myself in that question since some of the aforementioned rear-enders were my fault. Once I pushed 3 cars into one another. Remarkably, no damage was done to anyone's car. We were all going very slow.
The other time I did it was in almost the same location as today's accident. I banged into a car that stopped abruptly in front of me, then a van hit me.
Another time on the way to work I was involved in a five car accident. Not my fault that time. But because of this accident I was able to get the damage from this accident and the last fixed as the damage was to the exact same place.
Then there was the accident that was definitely my fault. I think I looked at the light for the cross traffic instead of the one for my lane (as you come over the hill you see that light clearly but as you continue towards the intersection you are in line with your own light. I think I looked as I came up the hill, thought it was green and started across the intersection on red.) That wreck was my fault. I have higher insurance rates to prove it. In my defense, I was driving very slowly.
So, here I go again. At least it wasn't my fault. Do you think they will think I am a bad risk and raise my rates again anyway?
