Actually it is worth knowing where your fuel cut off reset switch is. 10 years ago I was driving down the A1(M) between St Evenage and Welwyn GC and out of nowhere (well, more than likely from between the wheels of a lorry) a brick came flying at me and hit under my car. Took a chunk out of the splitter and you could see bounce marks all the way under the car (narrowly missing the brake lines). I immediately lost all power.
Car wouldn't start and I had no breakdown cover. I was about to arrange an expensive recovery when a little alarm bell rang in the inner recesses of my brain... Fuel cut off switch...
