    This is why people have to pay attention to their surroundings and what is going on. Drivers are idiots. I cant tell you the amount of times I have almost been hit by someone in a car when I am mowing. Its like we have to do the thinking for us as well as the other person. Always be on the defensive.

    Wow. Guess he'll probably pay more attention no while mowing that close to the hood.

    I worry about that myself sometimes.
    But I usually worry about becoming part of an accident due to a wreck in busy areas.

    Sucks about his mower.
    I like his tires though....

    For Sale: Hustler Z, needs a little work (mostly cosmetic). Tire in good shape. Make offer or will trade for clean pair of drawers.

    Unlucky but real lucky at the same time.
    When I initially saw the headline I was thinking the guy was gonna end up dead. Good to see he just needs a change of underwear.
    I hope the guy gets his mower paid for by someone other than his insurance. By the looks of the old beater that hit him, his Z was worth more than the car.
