Holy microwave oven batman.....

Not a great thread but here we go.....

Leaving work this evening tired and wrecked. I approaching a roundabout......it's raining and dark. Just about to enter when a Citroen enters it from the right at high speed in "stealth mode" .... ( ie lights off ). I'm hard on anchors, and it was a close one. Citroen does one lap of roundabout then leaves. ?? Very strange


At least I still have my front right wing. I must be getting old. If we hit it would gave been one of those cringey insurance forms " other car came from nowhere "

I know it would have been my fault totally but no lights on a black car at massive speeds? It would make you wake up a bit......

....... Phew.

So that's the story please feel free to criticise...

It's easy to criticise, but i think it's happened to everyone at one time or another.

Main thing is your ok, your cars ok, and you'll learn from the experience.

@Damien: no worries man. I know the story. Late night on the keyboard. I had a toddler hanging off me last night drilling new teeth. Roll on a good night sleep......
