    Today I rearended a ford ranger (ironic) in stop/go traffic while texting. It was at a really slow speed so my truck was totally fine, just a little scratched on the bumper and licencse plate. Same story with the ranger, I handed the guy 50 dollars cash and we called it even. I feel like a dunderhead, I will never again send a text message while behind the wheel.

    I never text behind the wheel. Sometimes I will read them when at red lights, but when it turns green I just throw my phone in my passenger seat. I never touch it when I'm moving.

    Same thing here. Ended up being one of the best things that could have happened to me. Have not had a drink and driven since 5/5/08 and plan to keep it that way

    Punched mine too. Knocked it out of its mount and broke the spiral cable trying to put it back together, disabling the horn and airbag completely. Luckily I got my spiral cable recall notice a few weeks later and was covered. Working on staying calm these days.
