Default Woman crushes neighbour's car

Not content with killing and injuring people and knocking down walls,
motorists can crush cars, which clearly demonstrates how very much
more dangerous cars are than bicycles.

"So very, very hard to explain away.

After all, the woman driver of this 18,000 Mercedes was only trying
to perform a three-point turn.

But as she found out to her - and her neighbours' - cost there's
getting it wrong and getting it very wrong.

So instead of putting her foot gently down on the brake she somehow
slammed it on the accelerator and drove up on top of the 10,000
Chrysler Neon parked in a drive in Ashtead, Surrey..."

No, not really. The driver made a mistake. Simple as that.

After all, the woman driver of this 18,000 Mercedes was only trying
to perform a three-point turn.


But as she found out to her - and her neighbours' - cost there's
getting it wrong and getting it very wrong.

BWAHAHA since when has a mid-90s Neon been worth 10,000??? It's worth 500
max!!

parked in a drive in Ashtead, Surrey..."

What's your point Duhgtard? A woman made a mistake, no harm done, and the
owner of that ****ty neon will get a far better motor with the insurance
payout.

Anyone who makes that sort of mistake probably should not be driving.

To accelerate that hard suggests that she really rammed her foot down - even
if she was intending to hit the brake, why was she braking so hard?

The worst mistake I've made was to forget that my car was still in gear when
I arrived at the end of a journey and let the clutch up - the car lurched a
foot or so before I got the pedal down again. I blame SWMBO (*) who
distracted me from my normal routine of clutch-down, gear lever into neutral
and waggle it to prove it, clutch up, engine off.

BWAHAHA since when has a mid-90s Neon been worth 10,000??? It's worth
500 max!!

Apart from writing off a perfectly good car.

and the owner of that ****ty neon will get a far better motor with the
insurance payout.


I doubt it: the insurance money will probably not be able to replace the car
with one of the same standard, plus he's got the hassle of being without a
car while he is car-hunting.


(*) Thanks, John Mortimer (RIP) for popularising that phrase!

Just proving once again that he can in fact read the Daily Wail on line
edition.

I used to drive a car a lot also. Duhg Bollen.

It didn't happen. The whole thing was fabricated in a movie studio by
Jewish film directors using realistic dummies to gain international
sympathy and thus grab and retain a chunk of Arab territory and
accumulate weapons of mass destruction with help from a complicit US.
Duhg Bollens view of the Holocaust.

Duhg Bollen promised a report on how Vince can reduce his carbon
emissions by moving in November 2007. We're still waiting.

Hi Doug,
I'm surprised you did not pick up on a story in Bournemouth -

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/dorset/7829022.stm

Woman decided to park her car on the road outside her house as It was her
"right" - unfortunately blocking in an ambulance attending a heart attack
victim who subsequently died.
Que motorists defending the indefensible - would have died anyway - blah
blah blah
question use of "right" ? check local paper

And luckily no one was in the way this time to get killed. Still, it
would have just been regarded as an 'accident' wouldn't it and the
vulnerable dead victim naturally blamed for getting in the way of the
car.

There are so many I can't get them all and some are not even reported
by the media, bearing in mind that there are about 9 deaths every day
and 70 serious injuries.
