Maybe I Need an SUV.

In twenty years of driving, I haven't had a single traffic accident.

In the past week and a half, I've been in TWO. Both times, the other driver smacked my car from behind while I was stopped at a traffic light.

My brake lights are working! I don't sit in the intersection! I'm a good driver! So what is going on?

The best I can figure, people have now become so accustomed to seeing SUV-style rear lights way up off the road, they no longer notice brake lights on cars that sit closer to the ground.

Last night, when I got hit the second time, the driver backed up and drove away. Hit and run. Gah.
