    Default A great day so far

    Well started off well until coming home and a woman decided that I had seen her not indicate and decide she wanted my lane. Luckily I braked hard and she only scraped down my wing. Nothing too bad I suspose Then the car would not move as the brakes had locked on (apparantly this is what they do in an accident or heavy breaking to prevent the car from rolling?) So here I was in the middle of Norwich with 2 police cars behind me trying to move a car that flatly refused to be moved. Finally she moves and we drive home...hooray!

    Get home wash the car and the bl**dy letters fall off the chrome strip typical when I want to take them off they won,t move and when I want them on they fall off!

    And its only 2pm.............the day continues.........

    Hope it gets better as the day goes on. Must admit I have never heard of what happened to your brakes though. You learn something every day.

    I did not know it could do it but the garage I called said most modern cars do this to prevent it rolling after a collision. I,m not 100% sure if this is true or not but the calipers had defo stuck on and I could not move the car for at least 15mins then she moved as if nothing had happened.Weird.

    Vectra,s seem like magnets to other cars they just have to hit them roundabout last week, lane change this week and thats me driving with lights on and both times I got "Didn,t see you" What are you deaf as well and can,t hear the horn?
