Changing Stories

I've been involved in a handful of accidents since turning 16. The first was less than two months after getting my license. I learned a few important lessons. First, the police in Michigan don't give two squats about accidents that occur in parking lots. In their minds, a parking lot is a license to drive like a mad man.

The second is that the really nice guy who just tore off your bumper will totally change his tune when he calls the insurance company. Suddenly you will be a crazy, reckless driver who owes him.

I've repeated this event about three times. All three times a police report showing I wasn't more than 50% at fault saved my tail.

There was also a lesson learned about a man rushing to have a lunch time affair being willing to accept any blame in order to get the heck outta there, but I'm not sure how often that'll be useful.
