I had a rather close-call this morning. I was stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic on the 101 Freeway, when an SUV (that was one car behind me and in the next lane over) plowed right into the back of a sedan, which then bounced from the momentum of the impact into the car directly in front of it.
And like the dumbasses that they were, the occupants of the respective vehicles decided not to pull over to the side of the freeway, but to instead get out and inspect the damage… thereby blocking that lane of traffic completely. Ugh!
So WTF’s the point of this anecdote?
If you’re involved in a pretty minor accident, please move your vehicle to the side of the freeway!
