A large bit of rubber came bouncing off a truck today and slammed into my front wing at 70 mph. My wing is now dented and scratched.

I got £1000 less in a tax return this week that im not happy about........

Wonder what the third one will be this week! :rant::rant:

Bummer. Did you get the reg no. of the truck?
No, i was on the slip road for thr Forth Road Bridge and he was going in the other direction, it happened so fsat, i tried to get out the way and made it worse. The dent looks like it will pop out but it's the expense of getting the guy out to do it, 40 or 50 quid anyway.

:(

Hope you get it sorted OK. Was it a bit of tyre? I have seen trucks shedding bits of tyre in the past.

I think it was one of the rubber blocks that screw onto the back of truck to protect the thing when reversing onto loading bays!

quite lucky the damage is small and limited then. those things are or can be quite big, at speed, it could've been worse

Had a similar one with me some years ago, if you do take the details they deny it anyway. :cry:
