Today, I was in the car with my dad, driving back from Pennsylvania to NJ. About 10 miles from home, we were driving on a 3-lane stretch of highway. A truck suddenly swerves in front of us, and we quickly swerved away to the left. If we hadn't done that, I would have died. But then, in the lane we went into, we got hit by an SUV (bloody elephants, they should be called) on the driver's side of the car. The two doors are smashed inwards, all glass gone now. Luckily no one was hurt. THe car still funcitoned fine, but the gas line could soon be fractured. THe car is totaled now, so we have no car. I'm just so glad. I know this sounds less extreme here, but it seriously was really freaky.

I have recently been learning to drive in America, and I feel like I've had a near-death experience every time I've ventured out of the street I live on. Today I had to avoid someone who slowed down and parked in the middle of the main street, as well as a driver who thought it would be a great idea to reverse across three lanes of traffic to get into the right turn lane.

Don't worry about facing SUVs too much, because they'll run off the road as soon as they encounter a mild corner.

Off-road vehicles/four wheel drives are the unikely predators of the suburbs. People drive them to feel big and safe, risking the safety of everyone else on the road.

It's mostly mothers who drive them to ferry their little darlings to and from school every day, even though they live only about a mile away. What's wrong with public transport, or even better - walking?

Yup, I was also involved in an accident - ironically that was on the way to my first Click Convention in 2002. I had a sore neck for a couple of weeks and got 250 compensation. Which has since helped fund a television.

Anyway, hope you're ok. It's hard to do this, but try not to focus too much on the accident. Don't mentally replay the image in your mind, because you'll just get freaked out everytime you see an SUV or larger on a busy road.

Dude, you did the right thing by not dying.
Next time, you should liven up the story. Like, "Dude, this truck was hauling NUCLEAR WEAPONS into BAGHDAD, and it totally flew right in front of us!!! My dad was all, like, gritting his teeth, and he goes, 'Son, you'd better hang on. Things are gonna... get... BUMPY.' Then all Hell broke loose. Flaming corpses were crawling out of Hell and grabbing people off the street and eating their minds. My dad got out his bullwhip and went to town, Indiana Freaking Jones style. It was all over for evil. Then he lassooed the front wheel of the burning truck and hooked it around a lamppost, causing the truck to swerve into a river. Then he jumped in, killed some terrorists, captured the nuclear weapons, and saved a baby. Then I made this cool game about it in TGF. Here it is: (download link). THE END."
That would have been awesome. As it was, it was still a pretty good story. I give it a 3 out of 5.

Usually its me and my dad, but he had a paint job that day so i vent alone.. the sun was high and it was really hot and i passed out in the middle of the water. i had been out for 4 hours before some german tourist woke me up, and got me to a hospital.. i was like half an hour to 1 hour away from death.

I...agree with Noodle (gasp!).

Those fucking soccer moms with their giant, gas-guzzling SUVs hell-bent on getting their kids to some insignificant event, while scarfing down Burger King meals because they don't have time to make an actual meal, making their kids larger and even more repugnant.
