Typical idiots going too fast and not paying attention!!

I bet the driver was ****ting himself after he hit it.....I mean, a car like yours isn't going to be driven by mild mannered 5 stone paperclip salesman?

I had not thought about the perception of who might be driving a type of car. He might have been relieved as I'm only 5'6" and 10.5 stone.... and I'm quite polite if people are to me.

He said he was a lorry driver, although at the time was driving a small Hyundai. He was obviously going way to fast as I saw he wasn't going to be able to stop when I first started braking and looked in my rear view mirror. I let off the brakes and went as close to the car in front as I could so I am relieved it didn't cause me to hit the car in front.

He was incredibly apologetic and completely agreed he was at fault - in fact when I got home he had already told his insurance it was his fault and they agreed to sort it all.

I'm just hoping the car is back in time for wedding though.... They are saying Wed/Thu at the moment.

It's easy to stereotype the type of driver who owns such and such a car I know but when you see big premium cars, especially Black ones, most people assume they are not the most friendly of people.....infact the old E38 7 series BMW's, (In Black) got quite a reputation as being owned by drug dealers at the time

It's good to know he fully admitted liability etc and it is being sorted out.

A few years back a 7.5t flatbed driver waved my dad out of a junction, and then the traffic came to a stop and the flatbed driver hit the back of my dad's car.....thankfully he admitted full liability, and said he wasn't looking where he was going and hadn't seen the traffic stop in front of him!!

The damage was just the bumper, but on the face of it the bumper was just scuffed but needed re-spraying....but when it went in for repair it was actually cracked from behind and needed replacing, after this was found, the flatbed driver changed his story and said he didn't cause that much damage and that my dad had done that since....absolute scumbag!

My Dad did get it all paid for eventually by the blokes insurance!
