They say, beware the ides of March... While I was driving down the interstate today (15 March 2017), a semi-truck tire bounced over the median wall into oncoming traffic. I had slowed down to about 60 mph and swerved slightly in reacting to that scene. The tire was bouncing high at about 30 mph and bounced onto my car nonetheless. When the tire hit my car, it missed the windshield by one inch. The only damage appears to be a little damage to some paint. (I was able to clean up most of the black tire streaks; minor chipping of paint found as well.) Not worth making a claim with insurance. Passenger airbag was turned off already, so it didn't go off. Driver airbag did not go off. I am doing okay. I know I need to get some new tires, but this was not the right way to get them...
