136- it shouldn't matter how fast the op stopped if the guy behind him was following a safe distance behind and not tailgating him the guy would have had time to stop. also if he was paying attention to the road and signals he would have noticed at almost the same time as the op that the light had changed. or if the other guy had left an "out" he could have switched lanes quickly to avoid an accident.
hopefully your inssurance costs don't go up because of this. unless you can get him to pay the bill go through the courts but don't charge him! because if you don't charge him than your inssurance won't have to pay, he can just pay the bill on it. but yeah if you charge him than yeah. but I remember this happening to me once you just gotta pay it in the time period they give you. so do that op. sorry I'm rambling. I am half asleep.
Well you kinda deserve it. Yellow means "slow down", not "stop". It sucks that he's uninsured though.
yellow light doesn't mean slow down lol, it means you should stop if you can, the yellow light is there in case you're too close and you have too much speed to stop, so it gives you a brief time to pass safely in that case, but if you CAN stop, you HAVE to stop. People that see the yellow light and see it as the last chance to pass and accelerate instead of break are actually breaking the law.
Oh, well thanks for bringing that up. It just so happens that I have epilepsy, and last month I had a really bad seizure, and I had to go to the hospital so I wouldn't die. As a result, I can't drive until October, because I now have to wait 6 months. Thanks for reminding me of that though. You wanna make fun of my seizures and anxiety disorder while you're at it?
84: I just messed around with it. I've gotten a lot of comments about it from a lot of people. Some really like it, and some think I was trying to look like the mona lisa, which I wasn't. 85: Yes, it's nice to have a good amount of comments, but 2 of them were writen by a bitch, who insulted me, and reminded me of a lot of shit. My life's already fucked up enough.
Sorry to hear that darkmis. Medical issues blow, especially when they keep you at home. Been there-- that's why I'm on here so much lately :( Your posts have seemed kinda down lately. Pay no attention to the anonymous insults; it's the Internet. People overreact. I doubt she'd have said that if she knew.
Wow, "darkmis". Attention whore much? Someone on FML saying they hope you don't drive based on your apparent ignorance of the rules of the road is OBVIOUSLY a jab at your epilepsy. And are you seriously complaining about being kept off the road for your own safety, as well as the safety of those around you? 6 months isn't a particularly long time. Thanks for sharing, though, crying in public just makes you ever so myserious and fascinating.
Darkmis, how is criticizing you for not knowing what a yellow light means a jab to your epilepsy? HOW THE F*CK could I even know that you suffer of some medical conditions, and even if I would've known, it still doesn't mean crap, you CAN know driving regulations, epilepsy doesn't prevent you for having the common sense to know what a yellow light is, nor does it prevent you to learn something about driving. And I wasn't even making fun, I was genuinely upset of the fact that so many people have no idea what a yellow light means, it just so happened that I replied to you and not someone else saying the same stupid thing.
so what's the problem? he's the one that's in deep shit, at least in my country you can go to jail for that, so you can ask him for cash, a lot of it.
