So yesterday I had to drive my sister around for some errands, and it began to snow. The roads got insanely slick, and with my old tires (working on replacing them) there was... well, pretty much zero chance of me braking quickly.
Turns out, braking gradually was also out of the question, and pumping my brakes did me no good. I learned this as I was approaching the back of a jeep half a block ahead of me coming up to a stop sign.
Luckily, I was able to veer over to the side somewhat. I hit the curb, which slowed me down and stopped me, but not before I came up right next to the jeep, maybe an inch from hitting their bumper. My side mirror, however, DID hit them, and broke right off - it's now hanging by a cord, being that it was one of those "power" adjusting mirrors.
Nobody was hurt. There was literally no damage to the jeep, and no other damage to my car. I just feel like an idiot
Oh, and the replacement mirror I just ordered is all of $20, so it's not even an expensive fix
