Eco bent AGAIN !!!

My poor truck got nailed again yesterday. Almost 4 months to the day when it got nailed in the rear end at a Tim Hortons drive through. This lady drove right out of a coffee lodge parking lot without stopping right into my passenger side doors. I swerved to the left and it was only a glancing blow. If not I would have likely gone right over the front of her Honda accord. She wasn't even looking our way when she drove out. It probably scared the living crap out of her when she saw the side of F150 smack in front of her. Anyways she got charged and a fellow F150 driver gave a statement to back me up. Off to the body shop again. Almost 3/4 of my truck is going to be bodyshop paint now. Bummer. At least nobody got hurt. I think I'll paint her bright orange and stay away from all coffee shops lol !!!

Sucks about he hit, if it were me I would love to turn back the clock and go right over her Honda and be proud to say you helped take another import off the road

I took out her left front headlight and quarter panel. When I went to the body shop the lady had already been there. The estimate guy said it was kind of ironic because I was in 4 months ago and so was this same lady 1 day apart. Kinda sucks I've owned this truck 8 months today and its been tagged 2x. I think when I hit the 12 month mark I won't take her anywheres for a few days especially near a coffee shop.

I know it's not exactly the same, but when I got my new Ranger it took the idiot that parks next to me at work 2 whole days to put a dent in the passenger door in the exact same spot as the truck I traded.

I've been doing a lot of driving lately, and I'm seeing too many people that should not be driving! Really makes me wonder what it takes to get a licence anymore...
