De-fender bender while dropping kids off at school.

This poor woman scratched my bumper (from the sound I thought she had ripped off the whole rear panel from my Defender).
Thank god for the step bumper.

Seriously. Either she was traveling at a pretty good clip, or really shouldn't be behind the wheel (or both). Either Way, looks like Defender justice was handed out successfully..

So what's the rest of the story? Impatient and trying to pull around you, or?

How fast was she going to take out the entire length of her car?
Or was it a slow rip like the Titanic hitting an iceberg?

Boy those early morning car rider lines for elementary school are cutthroat.
Yeah, she was making a quick sneaking move into a not-yet existent turn lane while I was stopped by traffic (stopped, not stopping).

Toddler in back seat: Check
On phone: Check
Apparently just dropped full coverage from car last week: Check
Fully ignored by 2 police directing traffic within 30 yards of event: Check (I was OK with this)
