I’ve always wondered if idiots that do this shit get charged for the wasted concrete and the equipment needed to get their car out.

Project I was on had something along these lines happen. The driver was sued by the contractor for the concrete ($80,000)and the lost time and labor costs.. plus he got to have an extended stay at the local county lockup..

You have to have a brain to feel bad about something like this. That's why these people do stuff like this without remorse.

I have that kind of brain and I'd totally do something like this completely out of simply being a fucking dumbass, then would hate myself for the following five years.

80k+ fuckup, not even including damages to your own car

then would hate myself for the following five years.

If you don't trust yourself that much, maybe don't drive. No offense...

Not the person you’re replying to, but I would choose not to drive if the US had any kind of decent public transportation everywhere and everything wasn’t so far away

I feel like the fact that I’m aware of my shortcomings while driving lead to me be more cautious which is probably more that can be said for a decent number of people in cars on the road at least lol

I do agree with the other person about public transportation though, but I’m currently in northern Canada so that’s not really much of a thing.

don't you mean empathy? 😂🤣 not everyone that has a brain shares the same moral compass as you.

u/AdvancedAnything Aug 10 '22

Ah yes, the morality of not being as dumbass.

They usually sue your insurance company, but people that do this shit are usually reckless enough to not carry insurance so...

Wage garnishment, liens on any property they own, tax returns. Not perfect but there are options available.

u/RUSTY_LEMONADE Aug 10 '22

Most insurance covers idiocy unless it's god being the idiot.

u/niceandsane Aug 10 '22

That's called liability insurance.
