    Now all he has to wait for is some person to randomly call up "I understand you have been in a car accident that is not your fault........"

    Always creates a bit of a 'moment' when you realise how quick these things happen and how different it could have been, glad alles ist gut.

    Perhaps now is the opportunity to change that pocket rocket for a Chelsea tractor.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Car which was on the left decided to suddenly turn right into that road that you can see below, that hit me in the side and forced off road,thankfully nobody was on the pavement AND my braking was quick - the speed at which I hit the wall was very low, but airbag got deployed. Don't know if the car is going to be a write off or not
    Clarity please - the damage to the Merc is on your nearside, were you travelling in opposite direction when the vehicle turned - in which case I would expect damage to your offside; or were you overtaking the vehicle when it turned right which would explain the nearside damage
    How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think

    As has been said, main thing is everyone walked away. In such cases the old adage 'make a virtue of necessity' comes to mind. Time to head to Autotrader.

    Glad you're OK aTw, shame about the car, but now you have an excuse to upgrade

    Have a ground squirrel to take your mind off things:
