Sorry to hear about the accident. Where were you driving? Interstate
highway? It's my understanding that the car to the rear always has the onus
when it comes to this type of collision.. However, if you are driving UNDER
the posted minimum that may be different. Where do you live?

Subject: Audi Vs. Honda... Honda looses

Well I am sad to write that yet another audi might be totalled. I was
decelerating in my 1988 5000 and someone in what appeared to be a blue honda
decided to test the laws of pyhsics and discover that Newton's second law
still works. The honda went under my 5000, crushing the spare tire carrier
and destroying my rear muffler. The bumper is puched down a little and the
panel which holds the chrome piece above hte bumper is pushed up. The
honda's A/C and radiator were pushed into the engine and the hood was
crumpled to the windshield.

So I get a ticket for Impeding Traffic. Even though I was doing 30-40 MPH
when the accident occured.

Anybody know what exactly impeding traffic is? As it was explained by the
police officer if your doing the speed limit and everyone else is doing 125
mph your impeding traffic.
