Re: Accident Rant!
Glad you and your family are okay.
Between the drunks and the cell phone addicts, driving around town can be the most dangerous driving you do. I end up shuffling vehicles out of the driveway and onto the street just like you did, and am very aware of the looney drivers in the neighborhood.
Several years ago one night (preSMB) some drunk drove through our front yard and flattened our mailbox then exited through the driveway. To prevent further such behavior, I anchored the new mailbox in a pile of small boulders and planted aspen trees around it. I guess someone could still knock it down, but they would leave several pieces of their vehicle's undercarriage behind this time.
