Never mind BMW drivers, what about van drivers?

It seems that a lot of folk have it in for BMW drivers but nobody has (recently, anyway) had a go at van drivers.

My wifes Grande Punto is booked in next week for over 1100 worth of repairs after a van driver collided with her . Thankfully everyone was ok, just a bit shook up, and the car is driveable. The road they were travelling on has two lanes in each direction. The wife was heading out of Belfast in the inside lane and van boy was coming the opposite way when he decided to do a u-turn. This would have been ok if he had completed his manoeuvre in the outside lane but instead came across into the inside lane only to find my wifes car was already occupying that space. His excuse? "I thought you were further back"

Still, fair play to the company boss as he has agreed to cough up for the repairs.

I'd say he probably owns a P45 now.

I asked the wife what sort of van it was and she said "A big one!"
