Default I crashed my car

I pressed on the brake and my foot slipped and hit the gas. Without further ado...

Basically there is some front damage to the bumper and hood now. Plus I scraped up the bottom. I have crappy PIP insurance so how much will this cost out of my pocket, a grand? 2 grand?

Hahaha that picture is awesome. You stepped on the brake and your foot hit the gas? How does that physically happen?

New bumper on a car like that, plus paint work to the hood... 3-4 grand probably. Bumpers are damn expensive these days.

At least it was into a wall and not into some convenience store where the video would be played on the 4 o'clock news.

Lulz...

ATOT this is why you do not drop insurance down to just PIP/state minimums. Because when the Casiotech bug bites you and you crash your car, you will be happy because you'll have it fixed for only your deductible....

Wow, i don't think you should be allowed to drive if you are that incompetent. Don't you feel like you are placing peoples lives in danger?
