Soccer mom in an SUV. Doubtful. She says her ABS was clicking like crazy, but she still couldn't stop.

Hit felt pretty hard, but there's really not a mark on the car. I'm impressed.

What are you talking about...The damage was crazy. Cracked the whole rear bumper, smashed the trunk in, the lights. Man now it's all gonna have to replaced, but since you're replacing it, you might as well upgrade too. wink wink..nudge nudge. You know what I'm saying.

Jk man. Seriously though, that blows. It's these damn people that think just because they have ABS they can magically stop on a dime, and that the laws of physics don't apply to them. When in reality ABS makes stopping distances in snow much longer.

If you guys swapped info, I would go take the car to the shop and get it checked over for any possible hidden damage, make sure there are no surprises.

Driving with ABS in the snow is tricky. The idea is that you can steer around while trying to stop.

The first time I used ABS in the snow, I stopped in the middle of an intersection!

Jamil, get the car checked out anyway. The car can't be too clean in the shit we've been getting and there might be a few surprises hidden behind the bumper.
