FOR GODS SAKE READ THE BLOODY SMALL PRINT ON YOUR INSURANCE POLICY!!!!
To cut a long story short, I though me and my new bargain Astra was insured... when in fact, we wasn't.
Then on the way to work this morning, looked in the rear view mirror to find a police volvo flashing me over. They told me the computer said I wasn't insured and most likely because my cars logbook hasn't come back yet. Luckily, I avoided losing my license because I co-operated, I was still a youth and I had no criminal record. So they just impounded my Astra instead.
£150 to get it back. £20 extra for each day it's sat in the impound.
I tell you what. I dont think I've ever been so choked up before seeing my Astra being towed away. Especially as I've only had it for 3 DAYS!
I'm not looking for sympathy, and yes, I know I was in the wrong I dont need people telling me I deserved it and I know I got off lucky.
I'm just warning everybody else about how bloody cunning these computers are. Trust me, it told me more about my car on that computer screen than I thought I'd ever know about it.
