Well just popped out for a mid-evening munch from the takeaway, and some bafoons come speeding up behind me, and one realises I'm there, brakes and spins into the back of the car at about 30ish by the time he's done. He then claims it's my fault as I was driving 'too far on the f'ing left'. Well damn, I've never been accused before of wrongly driving on the left hand side of the road before. 

 

Luckily, I wasn't in my own car or it may now be in a thousand pieces, I was in a trusty old Land Rover but it paid the price with a now destroyed rear step, and has broken a reflector. It isn't all bad news though, the takeaway was safe and eaten as I waited for the police, the Land Rover is fine and the Corsa that hit me is somewhat bent into something remotely resembling a squashed bug. Better news - it was a 63 plate, so that's one !Removed! removed that he's still going to probably end up paying off for the next few years. His mate in the Golf sped off - pretty stereotypical pair if honest.

 

What helped is being at traffic lights, as well as hitting me he hit a post and some railing which took some impact out of it, and being a thundering beast the Land Rover just sort of sat there. Though I'm sure my back may disagree come morning...

All the other Drivers fault to be sure.
He was obviously hooning it and stuffed up.
Brand new Corsa too? Good effort.

:lol:  That bit made me laugh out loud.

 

Glad you're ok. The Corsa must have been pretty smashed up for the police to have come?

 

If you had a rear dash cam, this would have been good evidence against their hooning, you possibly could have had him charged with careless driving.

Again, I like many appreciate that you have managed to save the world by removing one more blasted eyesore! As for the claim that you were driving on the left... what is there to say really! I expect the police immediately through the blame where it deservedly resides.

 

As for the golf, did you get any details? Clear the morons were trying to have a "who can go quicker" and clearly suffered! its a good job it was the landrover, but then again, I expect that if you want to laim for the repairs, it may well be written off. In fact, if it did that much damage, its possible it might have affected the subframe...

 

Do you have any photo's of the corsa's demise? if you do - please for the love of this forum - share them!

It was outside a Co-op so it's all be caught on camera, and the idiot in the Golf came back to have a nose, and was also pulled to one side and is now probably having a few other words too :P

 

There's literally no damage, it's an oldish Discovery with the metal bumpers, and the back's been reinforced after the boot was found to be rotted to hell and replaced. 

 

Unfortunately my phone is out of commission, but there were photo's taken by people passing, probably laughing at the Corsa :P

He did have a full tracksuit on a-la-Primark...

It was his mum's... or so the insurance says, and I'm pretty sure the police are charging him for driving without insurance because it'd been lowered, was indeed the 'limited edition', had HID's at 8000K, typical Halford's touches and stickers too; and as such I don't think you can say it's his mum's car...

Sounds like he'll get done for insurance fraud too.

If it's his car and it's insured by his mum with him as additional driver and he actually owns it he'll get filleted.
