Be careful when driving. Taking your eyes off the road even for less than two seconds, on a road you know well, can be expensive. In my case, 2 new tires and an front-end alignment from hitting a pothole, and all I did was glance down at the passenger seat.

I guess I should be glad that I didn't swerve into the other lane or flip the car.

Especially when you need at least three to come to a complete stop, and one of them is lost just moving your foot over to the brake.

Oddly enough earlier today I got a call from my Wife. Some guy backed into her in the parking lot. So there will be much calling of insurance I have no doubt.
