The driver behind me had droped a cigarette in his lap and didn't notice me until it was way too late. All I heard was a squeek before he hit me.

The second one was going through a construction zone during rush hour, I was in the right lane because the left would get backed up due to people making illegal left turns. A large van was in front of me wit about 2 car lengths between us. A lady in a full sized truck decided that was enough room to get in. She was wrong, and with construction equipment on my right the only thing I could do was try to stop. She clipped my front fender.
