Rear ended with a passenger

Back up cam is much better during the day than at night. Really need to make sure it's clean though.

Also I use Apple car play. I use Waze for navigation so it is displayed on the screen which is very nice. Wish the whole Uber and Lyft app could work through it. Someone showed me how to "jail break" the phone so any app will work with car play but it is a little complicated (for me) and could lead to problems which I am not tech savvy enough to fix so I leave that alone.
Cleaned the camera yesterday, still looks awful. Almost like it's out of focus. I may have the dealer take a look.

Very disappointed with the Apps / Downloads being incomplete features with no instructions or documentation. I found a post in a forum that there was a repair notice sent out stating that the feature may never be fully implemented - which begs the question, why is it there?

The system runs on Android, so theoretically it's possible to install Android apps and widgets. But doing so could possibly brick the system.

I'm preparing to move to the city of Richmond, was driving there yesterday evening when I was rear ended at an intersection with a passenger.

My car is likely totalled but fortunately there were no serious injuries. My passenger had some minor neck pain and was transported by EMS as a precaution. I was not at fault and the other driver's insurance company has taken responsibility. But now I have to figure out how to make car payments again - times are tight.

Uber called me a few minutes later, they detected the collision. I was trying to talk with my passenger, police, Fire, and the other driver. Called customer service later and was about to start pulling my hair out, the language barrier is so annoying! Finally completed an online incident report.

I had my car detailed for the very first time ever about an hour before $35 that I really couldn't afford. Earned $17 today before my car was demolished. But I did very well last week here and plan to get back in the saddle.

Keep those dash cameras running and PLEASE insist on your passengers buckling up before you turn a wheel!


So I got rear ended on the freeway by someone 3 weeks ago who dragged me into the vehicle ahead of me , they must have been messing around with their phone and doing 70 mph. I had passengers in the back. No camera, my brand new vehicle only had a few thousand miles on it was totaled and been right off by uber's insurance. Luckily no one was injured but it was a hit and run. Passengers confirmed to uber that it was not my fault.

I only do uber on the weekends as I have a full time job, but its been a nightmare going through the claim process. Lesson learned will be getting a top of the range front and back cam professionally installed if i get a brand new vehicle.

Good luck with your new Civic and be safe out there.

Sorry for going through all these. Did you present the police officers your insurance or the Uber insurance? Very likely your insurance is going to drop you from their protection.

Best wishes to go back to the road.

Why?(!) He wasn't at fault(!) Can I call you Jessie?

Sorry about what happened, Benjamin. Glad you are up and running and no one was hurt. Hopefully the a__hole who caused this was profusely apologetic and making restitution for your misery?

Actually I don't believe I provided either as the other driver was clearly at fault. And no worries about insurance here! I am smart & honest, have rideshare gap insurance on my policy. The collision occurred during Phase III so it would have been under Uber if I needed to make a claim.

I did speak with Uber's insurance provider and followed up with my own agent, all is well.

I was hit by a very nice lady, we didn't talk very much because I was dealing with 911, my pax, Uber, and law enforcement. She was driving a newer CRV, likely also a write off. Just sucked for all of us, that's why they're called accidents. I believe she received at least one citation.

Her husband, on the other hand, was a dick (showed up on scene). He refused the free tow that the city provides (they contract to avoid competition) because he just had to pay for his own - even though the truck was there in minutes and the crew was super nice. Then he walked over to take pictures of my car from all angles, not even acknowledging me when I said "hi."

It's all good. Enjoying my new ride and getting better tips because of it. And everyone has buckled up when asked nicely. :smiles:

Wow, that sucks! You definitely win! Glad to hear that nobody was injured. This is the camera that I am considering upgrading to - Uber Dual Lens Dash Cam Built-in GPS in Car Dashboard Camera Crosstour 1080P Front and 720P Inside with Parking Monitoring, Infrared Night Vision, Sony Sensor, Motion Detection, G-Sensor and WDR https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FY4FNB6/?tag=ubne0c-20

Here's my new ride, including scratches and scuff marks that I discovered. Fine scratches bumper to bumper and a few significant ones, odometer was also at 340 miles (did not notice until after finishing the paperwork). Politely brought this to the dealership's attention, hoping for a stress free resolution. All in all, the car is fantastic!

Those new Civics look nice. They're like a smaller, sportier Accord.

Loving my grey 2017 Titanium Fusion so hopefully I only have to do rideshare for another month or so before I get another job. The vehicle is new and nice enough that I'd rather not do fulltime wear and tear with rideshare on it too much longer. Having another job means safer and easier to pick days to drive it during the winter and less chance of being out with the crazies that want to rear end total it.
