    RIP Astra

    So much for selling the astra... I must have hurt her feelings
    Driving to Uni 9pm on a Friday night
    Smart Car on the oncoming side decides to go into my lane to park on the footpath (its got parking for those who live there and he did)
    doesnt wait for me to go past and makes a go for it... i brake but then knowing its not going to stop in time, i pick up and swerve around him
    it worked kinda... hit his smart car (but not head on as it woul dhave been) but the impact and swerve together made me mount the footpath
    i smashed into a parked car where he wanted to park behind.
    that car's boot opened and the astra being the tank it is, pushed the punto into a lampost pretty much slicing it

    no fatalities, just me with a sore neck, back and leg
    police came, they said the astra and the punto is a right off but even if its the other guys fault, my insurance would pay for the punto as i hit it :s
    luckily its only an s-reg so 800 quid at most id think

    now the fun battles begin on the blaming game
    pretty sure it will come down on him though so do hope/pray or whatever it is you guys do.... for me

    i might stick up the pics of the astra soon, real shame, only 24000 on the clock and its a 53 plate
    fronts pretty much gone, im just amazed i came out of it alive!

    What is it with idiots tonight!?

    I was heading towards marple and came to these lights just changing to amber (asin amber then red) but i was going to fast to stop, downhill and at 40. When this **** in a frontera (sp?) cuts across from his side of the road to turn at the junction on his right (crossing my path) I slam on the breaks, wehels lock and the car skids down the hill, missing his rear bumper by a yard at the most the idiot.

    I'm sure the smart cars insurance may cover the damage to the punto as well. Of course your gonna have to fight it but if you were caused to swerve to avoid a head on then the action was caused by the smart car. A bit strangled but hopefully it may go down that line.

    Glad to hear your ok. Get the neck and back looked at by your doctor. The insurance company should send u to see their doctor but it holds more weight if you see yours as well.

    Hope u get your car sorted soon.
    Its a jam thing

    May sound strange, but with regards to the insurance, it might have been better if you actually hit the smart car, then you could prove, without a doubt, that you hit him cos he was in the wrong, and that caused your car to spin off

    And with regards to feeling better, it might have been better if you punched the smart car driver in the face (Several times possibly!? )

    As every1 else has said, teh car can be replaced, the main thing is your ok
