    Based on the damage to the van, I'm not impressed by the crumple zones, compared to the damage a much lighter car will sustain in a proportionally equal accident. I think they lean heavily on seat belt tensioners to limit peak G forces. I'd rather let the vehicle absorb the damage. But that's just me.

    The Smart Car has a similar problem. Very, very rigid to prevent intrusion, with limited crumple zones. It relies on seat belt tensioners too.

    I suppose I'm just a fan of minivans over full size vans if you're not towing heavy trailers. Especially when gas prices are back over $3.

    Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in
    mud.
    After a while you realize that while you are getting
    dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

    It is not exactly cheating, I prefer to consider it
    creative problem solving.

    They told me I only had 5 hours after the accident to get piss tested. If it was after hours they said I had to go to the emergency room to do it.

    ya and i know how much they cost to replace i got into an accident on dec. 22/08 and i had no where to go on ice everything i did would keep the van going forwand, and on top of it it the van is a sprinter. Also did just under $30,000 (cad) worth of damage!, the insurance company just should have written the bloody van off like i said in the first place! took 15 weeks for it to be repaired!

    Switch me into another van now I am in a Chevy Express 2500 back at full duty performing all sorts of jobs , just got the accident report back wensday reason why she was stopped was there was a construction barrel that either fell off a truck or something how it got there is a question all I know is she was stopped dead in the road when I was merging into traffic I was more than likely forced to move one more lane over causing me to be directly in her path she was trying to merge out of here lane I didn't she her till it was to late kaboom. I have already spoken to the JCI insurance rep. they will handle any and all litigation including there side and mine she said if I get any letters from anybody to foward them to her direct.

    How many times have you heard this phrase so far? "What could you have done to prevent this accident?"

    Taken a sick day or vacation day is the only way I could have prevented this from happening.

    Ability is what you are capable of doing...
    Motivation determines what you do...
    Attitude determines how well you do it.

    Call a lawyer who works out of the town where you will be going to court. He will get it reduced and you will end up spending a little more now to save thousands in insurance premiums over the next 4 years.

    I know, it sucks, but it's Jersey............that's just the way things work here.

    Glad you're OK, hope the boss don't jam u up too bad over the truck.
