People like her should never be allowed to drive. Sorry you had to go through that op
Yes, it is. And there should be evidence (besides your brother's observation) that she was trying to text and drive--such as the time a text was sent versus the time of the accident. I'm guessing you and your brother weren't hurt too badly--thank goodness. Now let's hope you can get your car fixed--via HER insurance company.
If she was at fault, then her insurance would pay for your damages, not yours. therefore, she would see the insurance hike, not you. Insurance isn't for your own damages most of the time. No one cares if your stupidity only damages you, insurance is so that other drivers don't get fucked over if you damage their car or cause them injuries.
Unfortunately both insurance rates will sky rocket, at least in the state I'm from. I hit a deer last year on a state highway and no other cars were involved and with a perfect record my rates still went up 30%. It's crap, but if there were cameras around you may be able to prove she was on her phone and not worry about any of this.
It does get ridiculous sometimes. For example I was once rear ended leaving a hockey game. Traffic was crawling, and I had been stopped for a few seconds. He was paying zero attention and his dad tried his damnedest not to pay, but even my insurance payment went up. Unfair but what can ya do
I hope that intersection had cameras! The fact that she was multitasking could be considered hearsay otherwise.
I think it's really ironic how a lot of older adults launch the blame on teenage drivers, yet they do a lot of the same bad habits they attribute to young drivers. For example, I'll drive the speed limit and I'll look and always see an older adult riding my bumper, but apparently I'm the statistic that can't control my gas pedal. Sorry, OP. That's life, I guess.
#13, it's not just young people. When I drive, the people I see who are speeding, texting, eating, running red lights, or doing something else that would be considered distracted/dangerous driving, tend to be mostly adults. I can't tell you how many times I've been crossing the street downtown, and almost been hit by an older adult not paying attention. Last year I was riding my bike, and was hit by a man who ran through a red light. He actually went "This is why young people are such a nuisance on the road!", despite the fact that he was the one in the wrong. Earlier this year while in the car with my dad, an older woman tried to merge into our lane without signaling, and without looking. She ended up hitting us, and tried to blame it on me because obviously "young people can't drive". Earlier this year, one of my best friends got into an accident before work because a woman backed out of her driveway without looking and ended up hitting my friend. She actually started yelling at us about how young people shouldn't drive because we always cause accidents, and we kept apologizing until we realized that it was actually the lady's fault for not paying attention. Olderadults use the excuse of "young people are terrible drivers" all the time, when in reality, they're pretty awful as well. Being older doesn't automatically make you a great driver. It doesn't even make you a decent one. What makes someone a good driver is their ability to recognize that they need to behave appropriately on the road, because irresponsible behavior while driving could actually kill somebody.
Most people can't fucking drive period. It's not an age thing at all. Here's a fun test for you guys. Next time you're on the freeway look at where most traffic jams start(minus accidents) they're either from having to go uphill or from a big turn in the road. Idiots can't even push the accelerator a little harder to maintain speed. Merging is also way too hard for people because taking turns is a foreign concept.
Not sure why this was down voted. I've notice this too and it pisses me off. I've had to catch my self after thinking "somebody better be dead to have caused this stupid traffic jam and not another asshole who can't drive uphill" I did feel bad after thinking that.
