The No-Fault part of my auto policy covers me in cycling. I have a very high limit on that to protect myself from what could happen - like how a friend of mine was hit by a young driver earlier this year.

Explained what I had seen, and they asked me to stay behind the driver and keep appraising them of the location. Perhaps 5 miles later, a slew of cops descend upon him.

My wife’s ‘09 Mercedes E350 is sporting a nice crack in the windshield. It occurred a little over a year ago, just before it was due for inspection, in fact. I quickly took it in when the crack was extending perhaps 6", starting at the absolute bottom left corner. It passed. Read more
