In Australia, crashing your car because of a spider is far from the weirdest thing in the world. Our house spiders (Google 'Huntsman spider') are about the size of your hand, and love to hide under sunvisors or in car bodywork. Their natural defence mechanism is to run up the nearest tree to hide, which in the case of one that falls in your lap at 100 km/h, means it's going straight up your face, or maybe inside your shirt. Oh, and they also have a 'cling reflex' which makes them hard to shake o

A fear of spiders is more rational and irrational. Spiders are poisonous and creepy. An irrational fear is like a fear of showering, for example.

I compleately believe it! This happened to my mom.. lucky enough the guy she hit wasn't a total ass and there was no damage... why the hell did the OP have to call the police though??

OP may not have called the police. it could have been the person they hit. And this sounds like something that would happen to me. ugh

Some people really hate spiders. Everybody has imperfections. Don't hate, spiders are horrid, disgusting, and evil creatures. Sorry, but they are.

Oh since when did we need logic for fear? And please squeezing out reasons to argue w him.. Fear is irrational and that's the way it is.

F the other driver's L because he/she has to call the insurance company, get the damaged car towed to the body shop, rent a car and wait to get theirs back all because some dumb bitch couldn't control her vehicle because of the filth that accumulated in it. My car is messy, but it's never been so disgusting that I get assaulted by insects (arachnids, really) that infested it.

True true. OP is still very lucky. What if she didn't bumped on a car, but on a child? OP, YDI, be happy that there is only material damage.

A place does not have to be filthy to contain spiders or insects. Spiders often crawl into my house (to my horror) but my house is clean.
