I was driving to school today when I was changing lanes from one lane of the highway to the lane I needed to be in. No one was letting me over after I had let several in, had my blinker on, etc. I was getting a little frustrated but I wasn't trying to force it because I still had plenty of distance before I needed to switch. So I turn my head to check my blind spot for a second and all of a sudden, the cars in front of me start to slow down and stop. I didn't react fast enough but my first reaction was "whoa, getting a little close, slow down" then a second later "SLAM ON THE BRAKES YOU ARE GOING TO HIT !" but it was too late. So I rear ended the girl in front of me. She was driving an '09 Carolla and I drive an '03 Buick Century.

The damage wasn't too bad, my bumper has a 6 inch crack or so but I am not too worried. It is just a little cosmetic damage. My bumper has a lot of scratches on it anyway (it was grandmas car). I am not worried about MY car but hers. She didn't have any cracks but a few small scratches. However, there was a gap between her taillight and her bumper. This gap went all the way around the half of her car. My question is, it doesn't look like a crack but rather the bumper just came off. Like, it looked like it just needed to be snapped back in. Is this possible? I didn't take any pictures of it but I want to know if this is something that new cars do rather, unmount rather than dent. I didn't hit her hard, hell my car had barely any damage.

I should also mention that I almost 17 with no tickets or previous accidents. The car insurance is under my dad's name too. My car insurance now is about 100 bucks a month, about what can I expect the increase to be?

New cars have crumple zones, probably why it was damaged in the way you describe.


If you were in the UK your insurance would sky rocket, but being in the US I have no idea. It'll go up though.

It probably depends on the car, although I'd assume that something that was holding the bumper on must have broken for it to come off, so more than likely she's going to need a new bumper, courtesy of your insurance

Most 'bumpers' are actually plastic covers that just push-clip or bolt onto the car...shouldn't be too difficult to fix. Thats why u have insurance...I hope =)

i did pretty much the same thing except i had braked at the top of a snowy hill and when the antilocks kicked in i kept sliding...i have a truck though so i ended up cracking the girls bumper.

insurance went up $50 a month and you may or may not get points on your license (i didnt cause we never had to take it to court). we tend to get shafted by the insurance company cause we're younger. being your 16, its basically automatically your fault in the eyes of insurance. your rates are automatically higher just for being a single male under 21. shi t sucks

yea, thats what I was wondering. If there was no damage to the bumper, just a few scratches, it should be something that they can just "re-mount", correct?

Don't tell her your insurance info, run away from there, and fix your car.

No increase in insurance pay.

Once bumpers suffer a big impact they need to be replaced. Think of it like a condom, or bulletproof vest. Both of you need new bumpers.

don't go through your insurance company to fix it. that sounds like it is cheap enough to take care of it privately. tell the chick to meet you at some body shop and talk to the guys there.

by the sounds of it, it would be cheaper than what you would have to pay for a deductible on your insurance...which is sweet unless the chick notifies the insurance company before you do something about it.

Yeah in most cases. When somebody rear-ended my car I just had to buy a new plastic rear bumper cover for a couple hundred bucks. Just depends on the car and how much damage was done.

No, if you hit into the back of another driver it is ALWAYS your fault in the eyes of both the law and insurance.

Yeah, it's not his fault for being 16. It's his fault because of what he did. Did you read the story?

Yakult is right, it's always the car that goes into the back of somone's fault.

Right. This is what i meant:

No one was letting me over after I had let several in, had my blinker on, etc. I was getting a little frustrated but I wasn't trying to force it because I still had plenty of distance before I needed to switch.

So I rear ended the girl in front of me. She was driving an '09 Carolla and I drive an '03 Buick Century.

...That's why it's his fault.

It is not always your fault if you rear end someone. What if you're driving down the road, and someone turns right on a red into your lane right in front of you?
#22
You should watch and see what the cars in front of you are doing. They just don't stop on the highway out of the blue, how'd you miss the huge ass line of traffic building up in front of you?

Ah well, can't be as bad as my mate who went out driving with his dad (learner see) and ended up flipping has car, rolling it twice, blacking out and having to kick the window through to get out...

Lost his phone too!

This could be a good way to break the ice....after you slam into the back of her, get out of your car...walk up to her and ask her if she want to go grab a drink....
