    On my way to work to day I was cruz'in down Mission Blvd. (Fremont between 680&880) Ryan B. knows where I'm talking about. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif I was in the far right lane (Traffic really bad) /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif
    I followed this '02 or 03 Mercedes Benz (I think 540) GOLD 4 door painted POS. with a Cheese license plate.

    Well there was a Bus that was pulled over at the Bus stop. and I think the car in front of the Benz couldn't make up there mind if they where going to go or not. So the Benz Braked then let off. I was like Holy /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif CRAP!@#$#(&(*$&

    Going only 25-30 MPH. I Slammed on my breaks. and skidded 12 feet or so Solid Black skid mark. And then a slight Boom.

    All I did was put a small scratch in her bumper and mine as well. BUT it had those Circle Sensors for backing up. SO I Not Sure what the cost of the Bumper will be knowing that she will have to go to Mercedes (sp) who cares about the spelling of it. What ever. I'm just glad that no one was hurt and no MAJOR Damage..... DAMN TRAFFIC.

    Just needed to vent. SORRY...KEN /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Now I really mean my Signature...

    I feel ya, I was rear ended a couple weeks ago by a new BMW while I was in my company car. The fawker tired to deny that he hit me... until I called the CHP /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The bad thing is, a small scratch on a new car is at least over $1500 in damage. Especially on a Benz. Lucky you weren't driving the K5, that car could've been totaled.

    Dave, Bill, Dan,

    Thanks for all the responses. I hate it that of all the cars to hit it had to be a *anouncers voice* A BRAND NEW MERCADES 540 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif A little more like a middle finger to this whole situation. I tell you what though I drove the whole way to work and back home going like 55 mph. and all paranoide.(sp)

    Thank you all for the reasuring words. Well see you soon, KEN
