    SUCKS!

    You did at least grab his phone and throw it, right? Or kick him square in the taco?

    You know, I'm all for less legislation, but this cell phone thing needs a law.

    Glad you're okay though (I guess... :D ) it could have been a LOT worse.

    i do need to go to bed, but could not pass this up. a skip here because i am not really sure how to show my extreme disdain for folks who talk on a cell (even handless) and drive. really bad wreck here today- cut him out with jaws, starflight, guy ran to the back of another turning car. just stupid. dont know what to do about it , but have been drifted off the lane a number of times by cellers. just a rant.

    thanks Swank and here I always thought you were one of those big government types :D

    The guy was 22 and had two buddies in the truck and was from Surrey. others from BC can explain why i confined myself to telling them how pissed I was ...

    yes he was insured. it's the law up here. no insurance and your car gets impounded and large fine and licence suspension. how's that for lots of laws? plus the insurance company runs the DMV, controls driver's licences and makes you pay your speeding tickets etcetera before you can renew your insurance. they actually tried to ban cell phones but chickened out...

    noone hurt. just exceedingly pissed. I fear they will try to fix the metal in the door instead of reskinning it plus there is some popped paint on the B pillar and the driver door doesn't quite close properly when it should so I think they kinked the pillar.

    That really does suck. The cell phone thing drives me crazy. I see people doing it all of the time and it is obvious they are distracted. Very glad you're OK.

    And why is it that the s***TIEST of drivers feel compelled to have a phone stuck in their ear? Marginal drivers without a cellphone, then you add celland VOILA!

    Web Rage over.

    At least your truck is shiny and purty enough that I can see you taking the picture in the reflection. :D

    That really sucks man. Good to hear your Okay, and that your truck will be getting fixed on his dollar.

    ETA: That looks exactly like BOTH my drivers side doors. Only the rocker got spared on mine. :rolleyes:

    Well, that totally sucks. :mad: There oughta be a law. The law should be: "All idiots who get into accidents while yakking on their cellphones should have the cellphone inserted into their rectum and kicked repeatedly until it disappears." Oh, and then they should have to pay all fawking damages.

    Fawking young punks. :mad:

    Really sorry to see/hear this Simon. Gee I don't log in for a few days and then this is the first post in chat I see. Really sorry.

    Actually I was thinking that sliders might have helped too but on second peek at the pic, I think the bumper of the pickup was just a little too high based on where most of the damage was. I'm not sure they would have helped much.

    Cellphones really are a problem. Just driving home tonight I saw 2 different cars all over the road talking on cellphones.

    hi riley, nice to hear from you.

    sliders would have stopped the middle of his bumper but I think my door still would have eaten his grill and hood. they might absorb enough damage to prevent an injury in a big collision but they are not going to save the sheet metal.

    it is locked, it is lifted, and some of the damage to the rocker you see was not caused by the t-bone :flipoff2:

    more importantly, what does "meh" mean? Is that australian for heh?
