Ignorance strikes again!
“Bruce, this is what happened to me yesterday on 680 when everyone slammed on their brakes because some idiot lost a bag of stuff off his truck in the fast lane. 4 cars involved no one hurt thank god. That’s my car in top. Notice also the easy-up that I had in the back of my car that slid up between the seats from the impact. It should have been tied down!” –Friend of the author who wishes to remain anonymous
Thankfully nobody was hurt but accidents like this prove that it can happen to anyone.
