Don't be too smug or complacent about your transportation security just because it doesn't involve a horse. Plenty of other transportation issues can crop up in the time it takes to find a cab service on your iPhone. Your limo driver could show up drunk in a pink Winnebago, rather than the classy stretch limo you ordered. Even worse, he might not show up at all, leaving you to hitch a ride to your lavish reception in Grandma's clunker. In case you think these scenarios are off-the-wall and unlikely, consider the plight of poor Danielle Hobbs of Bristow, Va.
"The trolley we hired to carry the wedding party to the reception hit my car," laments Danielle. The bride and her bridesmaids were getting ready to walk down the aisle when they saw the crash. "It knocked the mirror clean off the car!" Danielle said.
It's not ideal if your ride is late or falls through altogether, but you're surrounded by plenty of people with working vehicles, so it's not the end of the world. If you're unlucky enough to be a party to a transportation accident of some sort, be thankful that no one's hurt, exchange insurance information, and get on with your night like nothing happened.
