Mustang saved my life yesterday!!!

I was entering a hwy off the ramp going 75. BTW the speed limit was 75, and this lil white car refused to get in the other lane to let me on. So, i popped 3rd and was going to go around him but he just decides to get into the same lane as me, causing me to swerve off the highway and into the grass.

I braked and began fishtailing, so i punched the grass to straighten her back up. Still going 70 over potholes. Then i hit the pole reflectors which i prayed wasnt metal as i was about to hit. In the distance i saw a big grassy ditch. Before i knew i was airborne over it, landing safely on the other side. I was finally able to get back on the emergency side of the road. The whole time noone even stopped to see if i was okay. Even the guy who ran me off the road. I got out and checked my car out, and not a single scratch. Just white paint that rubbed right off with my hand. Apparantly the reflector was a soft rubber. I was astonished at how well the traction control and stability control worked. It pretty much saved my life. The whole time i was sideways i was afraid i was going to flip...

That's what happened to me but instead of grass, there was a Jersey barrier. I'm glad, somebody caught a break.

Amen, I almost hit a truck with my dads bmw, the idiot probably thought I was trying to race him. As I was switching lanes, he floored it, and he was like 5 ft from the car in front of him, and I had to turn off the road.

Something like that happened to me!! It was raining , jus tarted and the grime on the road was slick!! Of course road construction so mad the road muddy!! A car cut me off to turn I swerved to miss the car and my stang started fishtailing about 6 times back and forth, thought I was going to spin out , but I ga e it a little gas and it straighten out!! I don't know how I keep from hitting the car next to me!! But everything ended ok!!

Agh!! I hate people like that it happens to me all the time. I'm like NO you can stay here!

But glad your okay, and the Mustang just got a little dirt on her. They are surprisingly safe and durable. It's built Ford tough.
