What is a traffic accident: It is an event that generally occurs when a vehicle collides with one or more sectors of the road or other  obstruction such as a post, a building, a tree or Caterpillar Wheel Pan Scraper.

I'm amazed that they were able to park it so perfectly after all that. They sure don't build them like they used to!

Yeah, Thank God. Today's cars may looked totally mangled on the outside but for the most part the passsenger compartment remains pretty safe - air bags all over the place, no metal on the doors or dash, shoulder belts with inertia reels, collapsible steering columns, and the outer body crumbles and dissipates a lot of energy.  You stay in the safety cage. The car looks like hell but you survive. I'm betting there were no survivors in that one.

So true, and I agree. My comment was tongue-in-cheek of course. Most of our Buicks are in the stone age with regard to occupant safety, and that's the only thing that takes the edge off my complete enjoyment while driving my Skylark. But I'm not going to drive it any less! As I'm fond of saying, if you have to die anyway, why not die from something you like?

If you really want to see the difference in classic cars and modern car safety go to Utube and search “1959 Chevrolet crash test.  The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crashed a 2009 Malibu and a 1959 Belair in one of their standard tests. The difference is amazing.

Officer, I couldn't see your car because it seems to be an "Unmarked" unit,

doesn't say "Police" on the door -

just another "Black and White"

 

Why did you back up into me?

Even in their present state, I'll bet there's still 50 feet from the front of the Plymouth to the back of the Buick!  :unsure:

You are so fortunate that happened there instead of out on the road. I had a similar experience a couple of years ago while backing my Skylark out of the garage. No damage, fortunately. That was the day I decided to convert to a dual circuit brake system.
