    Now that was a bit too scary for my good taste. :eek: If the truck had just swerved right two yards it would have ended up the front lawn of MY house and rammed head-on into the trees on the west end of our property.

    Looks like you had a lucky escape. Are the police sure that 'santa' wasn't driving? He could just be standing very still until everything blows over... I think you need to keep an eye on him.

    An update--the insurance claims adjuster came out and they now estimate the repair cost at US$50,000. :( That's because the crash caused quite a bit of structural damage to the house.

    The exact thing happened to a coworker. Strange.

    I stopped having a car due to nutty batheads round the area.

    A friend of mine (who I haven't talked to in years :() lives on a busy road that lots of people speed on (there's a slight downhill, so it's inadvertent most of the time). They have some large rocks (nearly boulders) a few feet back from the curb to make sure no one gets to their house (which is set back pretty far). The rocks have been pushed nearly 50 feet on a few occasions.
