In 2007, I was stopped at the end of my street, waiting to turn left into the neighborhood. A teenager behind me was distracted and slammed into the back of my car pushing me into on-coming traffic. I was lucky. The on-coming car had slowed to turn, too. The next vehicle that would have hit me, was a large, landscaping truck.
