Car accidents suck
. Big time.
A van ahead of me had to brake suddenly: so did I, but it looks like I wasn't -quite- quick enough. Add to that the fact that I was going downhill at the time and you get..well..bang.
I was pretty pissed off: it figures that I last 7 years without an accident, and then two months before I turn 25 (the age at which they stop charging you insane insurance prices in Australia, and just resort to plain outrageous ones) I hit another car. In my imported japanese sports car. Which costs just a little bit for parts. Oh well... I guess that's the insurance companys woe now.
On the plus side, I really did need to repaint that front end.
