    I've been rear-ended at a traffic light, many years ago. The light had *just* turned green -- I mean, I hadn't even had time to take my foot off the brake yet to start moving again  -- and BLAM! outta nowhere I got nailed from behind, I never even saw it coming. I believe my exact words were "What the @#$%??"

    Fortunately nobody was hurt, but the girl driving the car that hit me was freaking out, she apparently had just gotten her car back from being repaired after a previous accident, and here she was again.

    Her car was a Hyundai and I was driving a Chevy Cavalier. The whole front end of her car was smashed in like a crushed beer can and I only sustained some minor damage to my rear bumper. I was able to drive away but the police had to call a tow truck for her vehicle. I got off easy on that deal.

    That was 1995 and right then and there I made a decision that I will never own a Hyundai.

      Ha!Ha! C'mon, FatFreddysCat! Hyundai has come a long way since '95. Go get yourself a Genesis or Equus to be absolutely sure wink

    I've never had this experience but almost did not long ago. I was sitting in a line of cars at a traffic light and heard squealing tires. Looking into the rear view mirror, I saw a Dodge Neon coming at me like a bat out of hell, tires smoking! Your heart sinks in moments like that. It stopped just before coming into me. My mother and her friends, unfortunately, got slammed while on a trip. Their little car was rear-ended by a big pickup carrying a boat.

    I've "hit" one person. A car stopped early at a light to let me out of a side street. I eased out and barely had my front bumper into the turn lane when a lady doing well over the 25mph speed limit came blazing up and swiped my front bumper (I was stopped by the time she hit me). I ended up being at fault since I was technically in the wrong lane even though she was in the turn lane before the lines opened for her to get over and she was speeding while I was stopped.

    Another time I came close to hitting someone. I was in a 55mph zone approaching a stop light. The light was green and I was just about to cross under the post that holds the lights for oncoming traffic when an old man decided to pull out in front of me. I locked up my brakes and swerved into the next lane just in time to avoid obliterating the whole driver side of his vehicle.
