I love the picture with the " Vision Center " sign. I am always amazed how so many people drive like idiots completely oblivious to their surroundings.

Excuse me, but this woman had a seizure. Read the article. This was not some "idiot" as you stated. PLEASE be sure of your facts before posting ignorant comments. My daughter and I were at Walmart when this happened. It was sad.

Hope all are OK here. I had an accident once when I was waiting to turn left accross traffic, a little old lady clipped my right rear corner. In spite of the loud and jarring collision, there was only $40 damage to my tail light and seemingly no damage to her car. Initially she seemed stunned and unable to respond, and then she seemed to be agitated and struggling or confused about how to get out. In reality, what happened was that her car's frame was bent enough to cause two thousand in damage to her otherwise apparently undamaged car, and the rest of the story was that the doors were misaligned and stuck. Even the beefy cop who showed up couldn't get her out until he tried the passenger side door and she easily slid over.... The moral of the story - things aren't always what they appear to be. Hope everyone is OK here......
