People become inattentive in crawling traffic.

And some people are just inattentive, full stop.

Either way, sooo not good.

Hope you and your poorly neck are feeling better soon.

i think you are probably right there , it's just as easy to have an accident whilst being stopped as it is if you are speeding . Now it's a waiting game for insurance claims and everything to do with legal things so i'm sat here reading "all the queens men"by victoria racklyft .

So sorry to hear that. Something similar happened to me many years ago, making me think sometimes accidents happen in the silliest circumstances, sometimes in crawling traffic, rather than at high speed, maybe because certain drivers become easily bored therefore inattentive.
Hope your neck will feel better soon. Take care. And don't feel sorry: it wasn't your fault ☺

thankyou and i know what you mean regarding accidents involving slow moving traffic ..it's just a pain i could do without in every sense of the word so i'm reading "all the queens men" with a bar of chocolate to hand .

Oh noes! How horrid - you poor love. And your poor bumper, though I guess that's what they're there for, but still... I hope your neck is just jolted and nothing too bad, but I bet you'll be sore for a few days. Take care of yourself. *gentle hugs and much sympathy*

thankyou , it wouldn't be so bad if it could be repaired it's now looking like a complete new bumper and i hate waiting for insurance claims to go through . So i'm sat here reading "all the queens men" and eating a bar of dairy milk caramel.

Ouch! For both your bumper and you! It does ruin one's day, doesn't it - to be a victim of someone else's inattentiveness. Put you new blu-rays on the telly, pour a beverage of your choice and settle back with the lads - sure to make you feel a bit better!

I don't know anything about cars or driving but to me that looks BAD! What a flipping nuisance. I hope your neck's not too bad? Alcohol helps to stop muscles getting more tense and seizing up. Not only do I speak from a lot of experience but an osteopath told me so that's official advice!

thankyou and yes my poor car , it's in need of some Tlc ! i wouldn't mind but it cost me a fortune last week to replace all four tyres now this happens . Alchol is good for shock so i'm told so i'm taking advantage *g*

Oh, no! I hope your neck is okay. Remember - in the end, you can get another car if need be, but you've got only one neck.

I had some silly kid bad into me in a parking lot when my car was just over a year old. (I think she was on her cell phone.) Really, really annoying, and it took several months to get it all sorted out. >:-/

thankyou and i feel much better today . It's so annoying that you can be hit by someone when your car isn't even moving , pleaee , i hope i don't have to wait too long to get it sorted .

Ack! What a bummer!

Hope that you're feeling better soon and that all the insurance palaver doesn't drag on for too long.

I thoroughly approve of your remedy, by the way - wine and Pros fic, what could be better?

thankyou . I can't believe she didn't see me but atleast i don't have to pay for the repair . It's just the inconvenience of being without a car when it does eventually go into the garage . I enjoyed reading my pros fic and it was even better with a glass of wine .

Oh no, poor car and even poorer you! Hope the twisted neck untwists soon and that all the insurance blah goes through without a hitch. Even minor prangs can be shocking, so be kind to yourself. Yep, chocolate and booze sounds about right.

i feel much better today thankyou and now i'm sat here waiting for her insurance company to get in touch so arrangements can be made for the repair , the trouble is i'm not that patient and want things sorted now not later . The booze and the chocolate and the pros fic worked a treat .

Oh, no! I'm so sorry. The swine! That's a nasty injury to your car, but I'm more concerned with your twisted neck. I hope it has eased by now, but do have it checked out by a doctor if not.

I suppose the other driver wasn't paying attention, but it's awful you have to go through all the hassle of car repair and all the rest just for carelessness that had nothing to do with you!

Ouch ouch ouch! Both you and your poor car. I was hit from behind on two occasions while stopped at traffic lights - both times when I had a bright red Ford Falcon. How anyone missed seeing that I'll never know, the thing was so red it practically glowed.
I hope your insurance goes through okay, and that your neck is right as rain soon. I do approve of your remedy; Pros, wine and chocolate. Doesn't get much better than that.

thankyou , it's so annoying isn't it when you think back as to how they didn't see you especially your car being as red as you say it was . Hopefully things will be sorted soon though i'm not for being very patient .
