25. The DC Beltway: The worst of the worst traffic circles in the DC area.
Edited on Fri Dec-19-08 10:09 AM by PeterU
Glad you're okay.

My tiny 1994 Dodge Shadow protected me without a scratch when it was sandwiched between an oversized pickup truck and the car in front of it after the oversized pickup truck rear-ended it at 60mph on I-95 and pushed it into the car in front of me.

You'd be surpised how durable some of these smaller cars are in accidents.
