A guy rear ended me driving 35 mph into me while I was stopped for a red light. His excuse that he told the officer? "My windshield was completely covered in frost, I couldn't see a thing" shocked2

Can't make this stuff up!

Sorry to hear that, hope you are OK.

Suspect you may be in the market for a car...

He got written a ticket for that one, right? They even write tickets around here for frost/snow covered rear windows.

Sorry to hear that and hope you're ok, no whiplash, disorientation, dizziness, etc. My wife was rear ended in a McDonald's drive through at less than 5 mph and had to go to the emergency room.

Thanks again everyone. I feel fine days after the accident, so that is a good sign. Now just the pain on having to deal with getting the car fixed.

Any pics of underneath it? Similar to your picture above. It does look very good! Something to be pleased with.

I didn't take one yet. He just beat it out and resealed it. I told him I didn't care what it looked like. I think he did a good job down there.

Might be worth hitting that with some spray paint so it doesn't rust.
