So today on my way to work I was driving down a side street when someone in a white Ford expedition pulled out in front of me making a left turn. They had a stop sign, I did not. This was the result. I did not have good brakes to begin with, so a sudden stop was a non starter. We were planning to replace the car in the coming months anyway, but I guess now we just accelerated our time table.
Sadly I must say my cars rarely make it to an honorable retirement. My last few vehicles have all been taken out due to accidents, two of which I was at fault. This time it wasn't, but it doesn't make it any easier. I've already put in a claim with their insurance, and now it's just waiting, I think. I don't really know. I know they have to get their statement and do an inspection of my car, and I don't know what else. But in any event, this is why I have to juggle a lot of things around now on top of everything else.
