My 325ci that I've had for a few years just got annihilated by a stopsign runner yesterday. The damage is mostly around the passenger rear quarter panel, and is totally fine functionally, but the passenger side is completely busted and the quoted cost to repair it is well over the value of the car. I'm not too keen on continuing with it - it just looks awful, and I'm expecting my insurance to consider it totaled given the repair estimate, so here I am.
I'm considering upgrading to an e46 M3. My car had the sport package and was just all-around fun, and I really enjoyed taking it up and around windy roads and whatnot, so I'm thinking an e46 M3 might be a good direction after this. I just love the generation. The higher maintenance of my e46 was manageable for me, and I was/am willing to do necessary updates.
With that said, I'm wondering just what I should be looking for and expect in an M3 at this point. In my research, I've heard various things about maintenance, some of which a... keep reading on reddit ➡
I pulled out my phone while driving on a 50km/h road and completely ran a stop sign, didn’t even slow down or anything. Luckily no one was around, I was probably driving 60km/h through it and had someone had been crossing and I hit them they probably would have died or seriously injured. I feel terrible and will never text and drive again. Just knowing that I could have killed someone makes me feeling awful.
I just purchased a used macbook pro and when i try to turn it on it shows a white stopsign and nothing else. Please Help!
I have a Macbook Pro 2018
Anyone else finding themselves crossing their fingers driving through intersections in Oregon? I was driving through one and a truck pulled out right infront of me resulting in a pretty sizeable crash(was doing 45mph at impact). At first I thought "I must have missed the stop sign!!" so I looked back, nope. No stop sign. Then I started slowing down for every intersection and the vast majority of them don't have stop signs in any directions. How are you to know if you should be stopping?
There is a stop sign near my subdivision that everyone and their mothers run. I guess people are red colorblind. There is also a marked crosswalk with heavy foot traffic from runners, walkers, bikers, etc. Running that stop sign can cause serious injury to someone. I flip off everyone that runs the stop sign. Yesterday on my run a police officer flat out ran the stop sign as I was crossing the street. The asshole part comes when I saw him pull into the school near my house. I walked up near where he parked and flipped him off. He got out his car and asked me why I would flip him off. Long story short his said sorry.
When are two words combined (eg, stovetop, backseat, etc)? Seems people generally refer to the same thing when they hear "stop sign", so that combination of words should have a special status as one concept, but people do not generally refer to the same thing when they hear "large sign" or "metal sign". What does it take for two words to become one?
It was a genuine mistake and a first time offense (noted on the ticket I received). I looked up the statute online (189.370) and from what I understand the penalty is a fine or jailtime. Although I'm guessing jailtime is unlikely, I have serious anxiety trouble and I'm panicking right now over the prospect. If someone could give me an idea of what to expect I would seriously appreciate it right now. The truth is a hard bullet to bite but I'm not going to sleep if I don't. Please forgive me in advance if this isn't the correct kind of question for this subreddit, I assumed this would be a good place to ask but it's always possible I missed something in the guidelines.
Edit: Thanks to everyone who replied. I figured out where I went wrong and what I need to do differently on that road the moment I saw the lights, I was legitimately having a panic attack this morning when investigating the ticket. As long as I improve my driving and vigilance, I think everything will be right in the worl... keep reading on reddit ➡
Accident happened on 8/28, I just got out of hospital over the weekend. In a wheelchair, minimum eight more weeks then time using a walker(two broken tibias, one kneecap and five broken ribs).
I'm told he had $100k in liability but medical bills last time I checked were creeping toward $80k. I have under insured motorist coverage ($50k), but I am told in the not so great state of SD, in this situation, that does not apply.
The guy that hit me is a kid(early 20s).
I have people coming at me from both sides with advice.
"Get a lawyer!"
"Not worth it!"
"Sue! Sue! Sue!"
Anyone have any thoughts?
I'm having issues where by when I zoom down to intersections I don't get the option to change either to stop signs or traffic lights, can you guys suggest what I can do to fix this as I've tried to uninstall & re-install, updated my drivers and even updated my PC to no success
while traveling around the grid I always wonder if there is a route from here to there, (even if convoluted & much longer) in which you would not have to stop
I know I'm not a saint when it comes to stopping at every stop sign. But today I was waiting at a stop for a car who clearly had the right of way. A dude on a green bike came around me and ran the stop sign forcing the car to stop in the middle of the intersection.
I caught up to him at the next stopsign and mildly chastised him for running it. I was told to "shut the fuck up," and that wearing spandex looks as bad as running a stop sign. This guy was tallish wearing a checked button down shirt and cutoff jeans. Blonde hair blonde scruffy beard, riding north from UT campus. If you know him, perhaps you could inform him that riding at twilight is dangerous enough and we don't need unpredictable riders out there making it worse.
Then again he'll probably just curse at you too.
