In my email messages, I received the following question and answer post. I had been thinking about this scenario recently particularly about putting the transmission in neutral and a foot hard on the brake pedal and pushing back into the seat as the default option. https://www.quora.com/What-should-you-do-if-you-are-about-to-be-rear-ended-by-a-car-approaching-at-high-speed-while-stopped-behind-another-car-Should-you-jam-down-on-the-brakes-as-hard-as-you-can-Hold-brakes-lightly-Release-brakes Interesting comments because I usually stop with enough gap so I can see the car in front's rear tyres on the road surface so I can possibly go around if they break down etc. Fortunately, I have only had one incident where I started to move into the oncoming lane; still got impacted but not too bad and no damage to me.
HI, my car was rear ended a few days ago. the rear bumper is smashed and the body is damaged as well near the spare tyre area . I am saving up for a body shop repair but i think if i can get the bumper off and use a mallet on it to straighten it up it would not look so bad. does anyone have a guide on how to remove the rear bumper. thanks
