Heres a good one for you guys..
On my way to work this morning approx 7-30am, pulling up to long sweeping roundabout, To my horror coming from my nearside is a gritter lorry.. no lights flashing, probably hitting 40mph'ish, only sidelights on.. It was dark enough for me to use dipped beam so god knows why he didnt have his on.
The roads are dead, I reverse back 15-20 yards to avoid the spread, to my horror I see him swinging further over to my side, as if hes intending to get my car. To be honest I'd class it as dangerous driving.
Well he suceeded, covered my car, Ive just had it cleaned and the whole nearside, bonnet, roof, windows are covered, windscreen is chipped to hell.
How do I stand over this... Can I submit a claim?
My car looks terrible you can see the chips from a good 15ft away.
Ive registered a call with the local council, the matter needs to be discussed with a supervisor from the Highways department on monday.
Before anyone starts about only doing it for our own good I appreciate that, but Its the way he swept right over and across me thats got me narked, plus no flashing lights or dipped lights on, cue my driving without due care and attention concern.
Thanks for reading, help or advice would be great!
