    Default i hate dc metro drivers

    I was driving home from work and some idiot pulled out in front of me. Of course a jeep dont stop on a dime so I hit him. Did a good amount of damage to his car. A little to poor jeep. Cops said it was his fault. My bigest question is does anyone know if it is possable that they would give me cash(so i could just install a highline fender kit or flat fender and a new bumber) I mean I will be doing these evenualy why not have him fund it.

    If it can't be fixed with 100 MPH tape, 550 cord, zip strips, and a hammer it can't be fixed

    not cash but his insurance should cut you a check and then you can spend it how you want.

    Oh, that sucks man. Glad that is sounds as though you are ok, and you did not mention kids in the vehicle or your wife, so that is a plus. Hope it all works out for you.

    Ack! Poor Rubi! The stupids extend out of DC down to where I am too. I've never seen so many people who can't drive! I think they all collected box tops and sent them in to get their drivers licenses.

    So true. I'll use a boulder to turn the XJ on a dime, but I'd beat the piss out of someone that hit it in a car wreck.

    Once you get the appraisal taken care of, the other drivers insurance company should cut you a check for you to spend how ever you want.

    Hey Nick,
    that definately sucks, sorry 'bout yer collision. The problem is only getting worse around here...but as your tag says,

    "If it can't be fixed with 100 MPH tape, 550 cord, zip strips, and a hammer it can't be fixed "

    Yup, you can fix it!
