Doc, I'm real glad to hear that you only lost your car and only came away bruised if at all.

My first thought was how a pair of polarized sunglasses would have saved you all this drama.
Please invest in a pair. I wish all my patients took this simple step to protect themselves.

Quoting Tugger (Reply 26):
Actually, Polaroid sunglasses are great, just need a bit of shaking and waving (or stick them under your arm for a few minutes) to get them to work.....

No they don't. I think you are referring to photochromic lenses, which change in sunlight.

Quoting UAL777 (Reply 28):
Actually polarized lenses can make dashboard instrumentation hard to read. They also tend to "see through" water. Most guys (myself included) don't fly with em.

While that is partially true, lets face it, your eyes belong on the road not on distractions on the dashboard. But as has been said, most car gauges are not LCDs or digital outlays, so its a non-issue.

And respectfully speaking, we're not talking about flying here. But you are wrong about one thing.....polarization IS used in many cockpits, as window shades....

Polarized sunglasses are THE MOST effective way to reduce glare. In aviation, its benefits ARE indeed realized but in a way that its not a sunglass so the digital outlays can been seen.

Glad to hear you are okay. If there is frame damage to that car, you need to fight your insurance company so they total it. Why? Call the dealer you are ordering your 2010 Prius (BTW jealous!) and ask what they would trade your rebuilt title Prius for. The depreciation hit is tremendous.

It's an intersection I don't usually go through, the other side is down a hill, and so I didn't see a signal at all. I figured they had a stop sign. There was also a green light ahead at the next light, which was only 100 or so feet further on up the road, so the situation is very visually confusing.

Am I the only one considering the fact that the Doc's want of a new Prius might be related to the fact that the car withstood a significant impact and seems to have sacrificed itself so that he and his passengers came out relatively unscathed? Granted there are many safe cars on the road, but to have personally experienced what would happen in an impact has a definite impact on your thoughts. When I had a similar experience in my wife's Tribute (although I was the one with the green light, and she hit me doing 50mph) we had the same thoughts..."Off to the Mazda dealer to get another one". Of course ours was newer (10 weeks old) so we fell on the flip side of that 75% issue..... $15k + 2 months rental isn't enough to total a $25k car  Sad

Of course the new 2010 Prius shoots a whole in my arguement since it is technically not the same car as he had, but the thought process could still be there.

I'm sorry but I find the arrogance in this thread quite unbelievable.

A friend of mine was killed in a road accident last month, after a guy went through a red light and my friend drove straight into the side of him (no time at all to react and stop).

It was only 30 mph but that was enough to kill him.

Instead of gloating about how your insurance is paying out for a new car, you should be thanking the Lord that you didn't kill anyone. It could have been a lot worse.

That's all I have to say. Sorry if I offended anyone.

Here in Germany you'll find priority road-, stop- and give way signs also on light controlled intersections. They are there as a back-up in case of the traffic light failing.
The order of priority of obediance is like this:
1) A police officer on the intersection directing the traffic
2) The traffic light
3) The priority road-, stop- and give way signs at the intersection.

E.g. if, due to some reason (e.g. an accident) a cop stands on the intersection and directs the traffic, then you'll do what he wants you to do and ignore the traffic light, else you'll obey the traffic light. If the traffic light goes inop and there is no cop, you'll obey the traffic signs.

Yes, I should think what you said of the general priority is universal. However, for the stop-sign I'd understand it to mean to "stop always", so it would be overriding even the green light. Had we such a combination here, a major confusion I think would arise.

I welcome any pictorial evidence of such a combination where you live.

Since I now live in a very rural area, I'll be hard pressed to find ANY traffic light intersection in the closer region (within 10 km).
But in big cities, like Berlin or Cologne they are common.

Very interesting. Nonetheless, in the States (and this is clearly stated in the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (aka MUTCD) which is a USDOT publication) there are to be NO visable STOP signs erected at a properly functioning signalized intersection.

However, I have seen some signalized intersections that have folding STOP signs mounted (these signs are folded in half (concealing the STOP message) when the signals are on) but those are few and far between. Typically, if the signals are turned off or out due to a power failure or accident, temporary STOP signs mounted on barricades are placed.

Although in Pennsylvania, it is assumed that any intersection with a non-functioning signal becomes an automatic ALL-WAY STOP; temporary signs (for more long-term/frequent scenarios) are still erected because that may not necessarily be the case in other states. This is especially true for the Metropolitan Philadelphia area because neighboring New Jersey and Delaware are in close proximity.

I'm surprised, because if you got a ticket, your insurance would default automatically and you wouldn't be getting a new car.

Be grateful that you ARE getting a new car.

State Farm. And I have State Farm for a real good reason. My insurance says that if I were to be liable for an accident WITH a ticket earned from the cops, my insurance would cover for the damage to the other person's car but not mine, plus they would not help pay for a new car for me.
