|My car over the sidewalk. Yes, I spun a bit.|
Yeah, that didn't save anybody any time.
But most importantly, nobody was hurt. If there had been a pedestrian crossing it would have been a different story. And yes, people do cross against the light - all the time!
Nobody was charged and my car is at the shop. We're waiting to hear the damage. My car is 10 years old but it is a great car! The last few times I've taken it for an oil, lube and filter - the guys have commented on what great condition it is in. And it passed the clean air test with flying covers in November.
The big takeaway here was that you should always seat belt in your booster chair. Why? Because it flies. Here is a picture of the kid's chair. It normally sits on the left side of the car. You know, where the impact was.
I'm so glad the kid wasn't with me. She's not so pleased. She really wishes she'd been with me. And she got great joy this weekend visiting my car in our garage. The shop couldn't take us until today.
