ok so i'm freaking having the greatest day of my life on my way home (home home) from school for the weekend. I'm behind this semi, not too close..just enough to stay in his draft to save a little gas. Well what do you know. The semi throws up atleast a 2-3 ft piece of tire and it smacks my front lip :wzbigcry:. I already knew it was gonna be bad. I got home and finally looked at it. thick scuffs on the passenger side and it broke both bumper fender mounts. You know...where the bumper attaches to the fender. :dontgetit:

This completely ruined my day. So what do i do? Completely gut the interior of the car, do some rewiring that i have been needing to do then drink a beer because i'm done with finals.

i've got the car about 75% gutted as of now. Tomorrow the dash will come out, maybe even the fenders to do some wire tucking. And the cool thing about it all is that if i have to drive anywhere, all i gotta do is throw the driver set in there and go. :turn:

ok, thats my rant for the day.

Shit, be lucky that it only took out part of your bumper. My dad was driving on the highway behind a logging truck and a tire on the trucks trailer blew, and flew overtop of my dads jeep liberty. I would be scared to think what would happen if part of a tire hit the windshield.

u should have got the licience plate number and called the company he works for, they would have reimbursed u,

a friend of myne was driving behind a dump truck cause it was a one lane road and a little rock flew off the truck and hit the windshild and cracked it... he called the company and they paid for a new windshield

Heh I know a customer that had a whole semi-truck wheel+tire fly through his windshield after it worked it's way off the semi truck. Just think on the bright side, it could have been worse.

I'm not sure if that would work or not, they would want you to prove that it happened. Last winter a gravel truck sprayed gravel all over the side of my buddy's, dad's truck, and scratched and chipped the paint all to hell. They went to claim it and they said with no proof they wouldn't reimburse them to repair the chips.

Lucky...My buddy got slapped with a chunk of tire off a semi three days ago.. it ripped the front lip off and broke all the clips and bolt for the front bumper..
thank goodness it wasn't worse.

BAD LUCK i had the same thing happen to me with a truck but it chipped my windshield, stepped on the gas, drove beside the guy...he pulls over at shell get the information....right!!!!! The company went ahead and posted brand new stickers behind truck like on the weekend before my insurance could even get in contact with their people.....the stickers stated objects might fly off blah blah
I was like SCREWED no pictures nothing! so i was like the truck is like 10years old but the sticker looks fresh howz that possible???My claims agent just told me no pictures they would have a had time proving so I had to eat the costs!:wzbigcry: .

dont....

buy a bb gun and a blank for-sale style sign.

find where the trucks are parked at night.

tag many of the trucks windshields, headlights, etc. with your bb gun.

write on the sign - no responsible for broken windshields and shit just like you.

and stick it in the ground.

dont leave fingerprints or tire tracks.

payback city,

get me a drink box, biotch !!!!

Road hazard. Been thru it with my dad before (he drives a semi). The guy in the semi can't help that you were not a safe distance from his tire.

then find a truck with illegal mud flaps (the invisible ones) that should work. And maybe the rules aren't the same here... I know my friend's brother got two new windshields that way.
