Agree... one day my dad had a really bad accident, it was 2003 or so and he was driving his brand-new V70...
he's approaching this one intersection and sees a Fiat full of Italians ahead, which doesn't seem to know where to go. So my dad slows down a bit to about 70 km, and this Fiat driver looks like he can't decide whether to pass before the volvo or after... the second my dad is almost at him, the driver suddenly floors it.
Well, my dad ripped off the whole front.
Luckily noone was injured, b/c he hit the breaks early enough. being a former rally driver, he's got good reflexes.
Anyways, the Fiat (a 2002 model) was totaled, the Volvo barely scratched. The airbags did go off, though.
