Man I am glad I no longer drive in BC. Friggin' ICBC head cases!
So far so good with ICBC ... but then I don't know what they are going to give me for a day or 2 yet
It was the guy in the Ford Explorer that was the head case
Asshat was sitting at a left turn light yakking on his cell phone .... I was coming from the opposite direction .... the light turned green for my side INCLUDING the left turn light ... he was so busy yakking on his phone that he saw the cars across from him turning left so he went to
.... instead of looking at the light
he just starting driving .... meanwhile I am approaching the intersection and next thing I know I have a ford exlporer coming at what I thought was going to be my door
whoaaa I better get my arm in
... BANG he got me on the front fender
This is my 1st car accident in over 25 years .... after my car got hit there was smoke in the car
and I was rolling towards some other cars ...
I stopped the car and jumped out
.... it wasn't till a few minutes later that I figured out the smoke in the car was the airbag deploying
... turns out the minivan my car was heading towards was a nieghbour.
Anyhow the asshat on his cell phone did admit he was at fault before I even filed a claim (morning after) so ICBC has been good so far
but like I said ... I don't know what they are going to offer me yet
I have a number in mind ... hopefully they have the same number
Oddly enough ... I know notice how stupid it is to have people driving and talking on the phone at the same time
