Tonight a dump truck intentionally ran into me in my A4 avant. IT was slow speed but I'm 99% sure the insurance will total it as it has already had frotn end damage (repaired). That's if they don't try to **** me. I'm so friggen pissed off right now- usually I can shrug stupid non-life threatening or life changing things off but I feel like I've been getting porked lately on a few different levels and I'm just really ready to pop.

The thing that pisses me off is that the state cop that took the report says he put that I'm at fault. Are you on crack Occifur?! Wait so let me get this straight; when a vehicle hits another vehicle that's stopped(me), it's their fault. THE SCUMBAG HIT ME ON PURPOSE, THIS I'M 100% SURE OF. He had a passenger and there is absolutely no way in hell that they didn't see me the 2 times he tried to cokc block me from merging. I was already ahead of him. He wanted to play the 'not gonna let you in' game, after I had already got in. Stopped. So just ....crunch..."I'm a dump truck driver, I didn't even see him, it's his fault."

The passenger was actually laughing when I pulled over to the side of the road. I think he was about to just drive off but I had my phone out so he stopped I soooo wish I had the video going before he hit me. It did nearly nothing but a few scratches on the RF side of his bumper and bent it in a little bit. The dump truck was pretty beat up anyway so it blended in. The rear bumper, LR 1/4 and door are toast on my car. It looks like a sardine can that was opened by a great white. It's bent forward so it would seem pretty obvious to anyone that he hit me. I didn't back into the dumb butt. Occifur? Is that drool on your chin or are you inbred?

This is in a construction zone, waiting in line trying to merge. The guy probably thought I was just trying to pass everyone like an A-hol to gain a spot. He was a masshole and they do that down there as a rule, which has the benefit of causing accidents and actually slows traffic down more than just being kind and to merge & let merge like you're suppose to do anyway. But I was trying to get down a side road that no one was going down, not trying to jip everbody. But you have to merge first to get there.

Funny part is I drove tractor trailer OTR for 4 years, so I know it's annoying when people cut you off in traffic. It's stressful, and I've wanted to just smash into them before too. But...

1.) You don't do that because it's scummy, against the law, and could be considered aggrivated assault. You relax and be nice and then feel better 2 minutes later when they wave :thanks: about not being a dickface and realize that you didn't 'lose' anything by a car or 2 or 3 gettign in front of you and maybe gained some good karma if you believe in that.

2.)I didn't cut him off, it was a merge. It's not like he was moving then I just drove up and tried to jump in front of him and he had no time to react. We were STOPPED. I was in front of him. I had already merged in front of him after he tried twice to block me out. So saying he didn't know I was there is a lie. I was at least 2 car lengths ahead of him when I stopped. Then he pulled up REALLY close to me becasue that's what you do when you're a cool guy dump truck fucker. This is going less than 5mph btw. So everyone is stopped for at least 1/2 a minute or more. Then he just starts to go and smashes into me. The passenger was laughing too. I SOOOOOO WISH I had my camera recording so bad, thy'd probably b in jail right now. The other reason I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that he did it on purpose is when he hit me he kept going, making it worse. He could have stopped after he tagged my rear bumper, but instead he kept going. If he hadn't done it on purpose he would have hit the brake as soon as the crunch, but he kept going until the bumper was at my front door, then stopped. If we were going any faster I can see that being legit, but we were completely stopped,just as we started to move again he just pulled up and ran into me.

As I said I've driven a tractor trailer and even though it's big, you can still tell when you hit something. Even something small. When u back a 53' trailer into a dock and touch the rubber stops, you feel it. That's like a 1/4 of a mph , 60+ feet behind you, and you know it.

So if I end up murdering the guy then you'll know why I don't post my stupid shit on here anymore. Or maybe I'll just get a dump truck and drive around running into people, saying that I didn't see them - so it's not my fault. Wait that would never work...right?

He thought you were pulling a 'douche move'. 20 years ago i got my license no one ever got in front of a truck and did a brake smash,now i see it every day. I drive all heavy trucks,dump,roll off,anything and years ago i did the same thing to a brand new BMW,i wouldnt let him in so he intentionally smashed into me. Mr Douche moneybags gets out of the bimmer and says,'oh lets just exchange info and be on our way,ITS CLEAR THAT YOU REARENDED ME.' I told him i aint giving him shit and to call the cops,cop comes and decides HE is at fault. Cop saved my ass. :woowoo: :woowoo: :woowoo: :woowoo: :woowoo:

Here in Toronto the rules have changed. Total disregard for heavy trucks and pedestrians. Everyone hammers the gas to the speed limit and smashes the brakes at a red light. I dont get it,you see a red light ahead so why hammer???? Is it a race to get to the red light fastest???? The worst problem up here by far is the douches that literally sweep 3 lanes to ride the closing lane/merging lane so they can just get 8 cars ahead of everybody. Yes your commute will shorten by 54 seconds but you just managed to create a shit load of traffic as you made everybody else smash their brakes behind you. This is the generation of entitlement,there is no mercy,no class and no respect for your common man. Its all about being selfish and if you are not as selfish as your peers,you will fall behind. The only hope for me is to move to the country,folks out there know how to drive and respect 80000lbs of steel rolling towards them. I hate this city,but cant afford to move.

Now that I've cooled off a bite, I'll say this; he may not have intentionally hit me, but theres no way he didn't see me. He either thought he had room or hit me on purpose. What I was taught is if u *think* u have enuff room , then u dont. U get out & look.

On a similar note,the people i do business with(in the automotive industry),are getting fucked left,right and center. New rules,no more credit,and whoever comes through the door gets butt raped,period.
No mercy,bamboozle every customer and squeeze as much outta them as possible. For 4 years now ive been trying to run my business with honesty,thinking i will win over customers and become successful. Im getting nowhere fast! Everyone is cheating and stealing,and low balling to get work.
In,1998 when our family closed down our business,we charged $350 to refinish a panel,with quality PPG paint. Now in 2013 im still charging $350 a panel and people look at me funny when i tell them $350. We've even got some shops charging $175 a panel :dur: Ill go on welfare before ill touch anything for $175.

Yeah I hear you man, I think that's what he thought I was doing too. But still, that doesn;t give anyone the right to just hit someone anyway, no matter how much you want to.

Also he hit me, after we both(and th rest of the line) had stopped for 20-30 seconds. I didn't cut him off like that a****** did to you. I was already in front of him we were both stopped. When traffic started to move again, he pulled up a little faster & hit me. Even if I had time I couldn't have movd because there was no where for me to go. I was ~1 ft from th rail.

And another thing, this was in a construction zone where the north bound and south bound lanes take turns. Only one lane moving at a time approx 1/4 mile, so he had the entire other lane he could have gone in because oncoming traffic was a long way away- STOPPED. He could have moved but decided to be a shithead. I think what the cop thought is that he was already moving and I just zipped up past him on the right and cut him off. He was playing the merge block gam no doubt. I still may kill him.

If he really didn't see me he would have stopped after he initially bumped into me. Maybe he really did think he had enough room, but again he continued on after the initial impact so I think he just said F it, I'm a teach this b**** a lesson. We were both stopped, before he hit me. Again, He had a passenger, and I had already been beside him so it's bullshit that he said he didnt see me, unless he was playing Ricky Bobby lol.

If he had been moving and I jumped in front of him and cut him off I would be man enough to admit that I was at fault.

edited; because I initially did this off my phone with many typos and wrong words used, etc. still have some lol but better.

I dunno, we'll see. Maybe I'll get a check for more than I put into it....kind of doubtful. Even still I'll have to transfer the parts on to another car which will take time.

Also funny, the tuff guy wudnt even get out of the truck, just wanted to wait for the cop to mediate. I'm not a huge guy but he was either scared or knew he was wrong.

Only one lane moving at a time approx 1/4 mile, so he had the entire other lane he could have gone in a little because oncoming traffic was a long way away- STOPPED by the traffic safety. He could have moved but decided to be a shithead. I think what the cop thought is that he was already moving and I just zipped up past him on the right and cut him off.

The cop said he talked to 2 witnesses but still found me to be at fault. Mr.Tuffguy McDumptruck was playing the merge block game no doubt. I still may kill hiim and/or torture him.

Yes yes! When i get bored and pissed i play the merge block game too! Also saw before a year back what you were describing on your earlier post. There was a guy with a loooooong nosed Pete,tractor trailer combination,he came to a full stop,left about 20 feet in front of him,a dumb broad snuck in between the truck and a car in front of the truck. So buddy pops the clutch and starts pushing her down the road with his big monster Pete chrome bumper,she does a brake tap and crunch!!!! Im assuming this is what happened????? You entered that space where he 'supposedly' didnt see you? So the cop assumed you pulled a dirty douche move and stuck it on you? And you are here to say that you didnt sneak in front of the truck?????

Insurance =1 (but really 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000...oh shit, lets just say infinity.)

Josh =0

Anybody need some A4 parts?

Gieco said that I'm NOT fault because even though you're not suppose to travel in the break down lane, we were both stopped and he then struck a stopped vehicle.

Insurance said $3064 after my $500 deductable which they will persue the other insurance for(no guarantee tho). Buy back is $700 which seems steep. I thought it wood be like $200-$300. Either way it's worth more than $700 in parts so I'm going to buy it back and part it.

So I get $2300, & my car back to part, but I can't legally drive it after I mail in the title. I was looking for another avant and found a lot of sedans for $2000-$5000 but I ahven't found an avant for less than $4300. I know it's an older car, etc, but I don't feel like that's a fair deal. I would have been happy with $4000 after deductable with a $300 buy back. But being happy and getting a fair deal is too much to ask.

I'm looking for another avant 1.8TQ manual or auto so I can put the K04 pc16, brakes, suspension, and othr goodies on or an S4 and just sell off the other non-compatible 1.8t parts.

No man- that's not what happened. There's no 'sneaking' about it. He wasn't in a long nose truck either. It was a smallish single axle ford, one of the squat ones. I know it's hard to see what's directly in front of you in anything that's high up but when you have a passenger (unless they're asleep)there's no excuse. The passenger saw me, I was beside him & he looked right at me the 1st & 2nd time time I was next to him. As traffic moved I had moved up next to the car that was in front of him but she wouldn't let me in either. So if he didn't see me then he didn't see the car in front of him either.

He had about 2 car lengths between him and me before he pulled up close to me then stopped. I had already been stopped in front of him with the rest of the line of traffic. I couldn't get square in the lane because the car(line) in front of hadn't pulled up yet. There's was more than enough room for him not only to see me, but to wait and let me into the lane. He just didn't want to let me in and either thought he had room(maybe his passenger told him he did) or he just was being a d-bag and did it on purpose. He had a passenger and there's no way in hell he didn't see me, period.

Dump truck passenger: "Hey, there's a car pulling up on your right side. Oh and look the road narrows"

Dump truck driver:"I aint lettin him in, being kind is a sign of weekness"

Passenger: "Oh, here he comes again, now he's next to the car in front of us that we can both see because neither of us are blind."

Driver; "Ok, but I'm still not letting him in, because then I might lose nothing at all and still arrive at my destination at the exact same time. I can't do that. Just can't let it happen. I'm a man damnit. A grown ass man and being good driver, it's just not allowed. I think I should hit him and then actually cause an hour delay."

Passenger: "Oh look he's now turning in behind the car in front of us, and there's 2 car lengths between him and us and we are all stopped."

Driver: "Ya but I think I should pull up really close to him for no reason at all other than to intimidate, and even though he is now in front of me I'ma still not letting him in. Even though it's already happened. AS I said before I'm a MAN and real men don't show humility"

Passenger: "Ya I would totally lose respect for you if you let him in, even though he's alrady there and we both see him there."

Driver: "Ok I'll just go on ahead and hit him then. You don't mind sitting here with me for another hour or so right? I mean you didn't want to get home did you?"

Passenger: "Oh wait...no he just disappeared and vanished. Maybe I imagined it and there wasn't really a car there, and we're seeing things. Maybe it's because my eyes are shut. Oh well let's just go, I have cold beers waiting for me at home."

10 minutes later...

State Trooper: "What happened?"

Driver: "I didn't see him. He just appeared out of thin air and forced me to hit him. I had no other choices but to hit him. It's his fault, right?"

Trooper: "Yup."

~FIN~

Hot damn mutha trucka!Hot damn law enforcement gubermint patsies! :D doood,i really dont know what to say,all i can say its getting worse out there as time goes by. im starting sound like an old fart,always talking about the good ole days and how they were better. Just got home now and on my way im in my A4, driving on a two lane road and ive got a Porsche shitcan boxster boxing me in with chickeny china to right of me. I crawl up his ass,boxster downshifts to make me rear end him(brake lights didnt go off). WTF are peoples problems? Dunno \,if i was the wrong person,hed be getting hurt. I just want to go home and im assuming your ego makes you feel superior for whatever reason,so you decide to piss people off because you can???? :( Lot of folks need an attitude adjustment i reckon. Just this weekend there were a handful of shootings and stabbings in toronto,these folks always think its never gonna be them. Me,i know,so i mind my business.

As for all them mutha truckas,ima gonna tell you what i tell my family,steer clear,stay away from all commercial vehicles and heavy trucks. dont ride in front beside or behind them. They are all making time,texting,GPSing,talking away on phones,some bought their licenses,many are not even Canadian citizens(so they dont care if they kill you as they will just be deported) and 100% i know they run overweight and brakes are out of adjustment. You learned your lessen,seriously stay away. Im scared and atleast ive got 14 tons protecting me. Had a cabbie rear end me two weeks ago and im not sure if hes alive to tell you the god honest truth. Me,i didnt even feel the impact! :eek: :eek: :eek:

LOL ya I met a guy that was from Bosnia(friend of a friend)... somehow he was driving a big rig without ANY license, let alone CDL. He could speak english ok but ya - kinda scary. Scales? How had he been here for 12 years and driving for 8 of that without any lisence?!

And I agree 1 million % stay away leave them room just stay the F*** away! You never know what they're doing, what drugs they're on or if they are even awake! Once I saw parked at a truck stop sleeping and a Schneider truck pulls up next to me blaring music loud enough to wake me up. So I got up and looked out the window and he was POUNDING the shit out of a 5th!! HOLY crap WTF...

But I still and have always let people in and try not to be a dick, only exception is when you just can't move over(car on your left that the car on your right can't see -they only see you, not moving over to let them in)or just can't slow down enough to let them in. Those exceptions are easy excuses to play the 'not gonna let you in' game too tho lol. That's another thing, unless you've driven one you(Most) don't really grasp how difficult it is to slow down/stop one.
