I had my R parked on my condo's side of the street last night, went out this morning, one way street so i didnt need to go around to the other side to get in.<p>Unlocked, sat down, turned on the radio.<p>OPened up my special-k breakfast bar.<p>As i turned to reach into the back seat to grab my water bottle, i saw a Chevy Tahoe barrelling down the street about 40 mph too fast, with a minneapolis squad car behind it.<p>The tahoe clipped my side view mirror by about half and inch <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>If he had swerved any more than he did, id probably be a "wreck" thread right now since i wasnt belted yet, nor fully started.<p>Smacked the mirror backwards, but luckily it didnt take it off, or break the glass or the motor.<p>Ive never come closer to wetting myself... Yowza. Best part of the whole thing was that I called the non-emergency police line to report what had happened, and they asked me if there was damage to my vehicle, i said not really, and they pretty much said "Screw off". <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Oh well, at least im not lunch meat....

Re: Close Call with the R (AbsolutZer0)

Glad you are safe! Cool story! It is amazing how just a few inches could mean life or death (or serious injury) for someone... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

I had a similar deal....high speed chase on the highway....i was in the right lane (3 lane highway) and a dude comes flying by me passing on the shoulder. Rocks kicked up and cracked my windshield. Then 3 or4 cops flew by me on the left.<p>i called the police and they took my info and gave me a police number. But basically said...get in line. this dude was a wanted fellon, tearing up 20 miles of interstate, and my windshield was low on the list of things. they basically said forget about it.

Law states that collateral damage due to police chases are to be compensated by the city.<p>My mirror cap is scuffed up on the edge <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

A few years back I lived across the street from a school that had a baseball diamond on the corner by my house. An adult slowpitch league was playing a scheduled game there and a foul ball landed right in the center of the hood on my Pathfinder (and I was parked in my driveway!) leaving a noticeable dent. Of course, I didn't notice this until said teams had left, so I called the City. They cut me a cheque and I got it fixed. No hassles. The guy at the City that I dealt with said the City would collect from the ball team or they wouldn't be playing ball anywhere in the City again. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

yeah in this case what ive been told by my pops who also happens to be an attorney, is that when charges get placed on the dude, and he gets hit sentence etc etc etc he gets fined and he has to recoup damages due to his reckless behavior. So the city pays me, and then the city goes after the dude for the costs.<p>I'll take the "full exterior detail"<p>haha
