    Default Had a Chat with the neighbours this morning...

    Seems she misjudged where the road ends and the drive starts.





    Didn't quite make the turn from here.



    View from our house





    Damage




    She was very upset and has apparently just past her test. Damage is not too bad.

    I has literally just started the engine having spent 5 minutes clearing ice from the windows when I heard the crunch.

    Ahhh man....

    Another picture for Vectrauma.com

    Sorry to see this Steve.... What does 'stevel' stand for... I'm only curious as my surname is starts with 'L' !! and I use stevel@ as my email addresses.

    EDIT: Looking at the pics, I bet she started moving the car and then fed the wheel '10 to 2' style through her hands, which wouldnt have given her enough time to get on full lock for the corner... then just panicked and forgot to slow the car... classic 'new driver' mistake..

    Was it a case of she could not see out of the window. due to the ice.
    Or was she putting on her makeup.

    lol. To be fair her boyfriend spent longer than me clearing the windscreen. I think Spoons got it spot on. Too much learner driver 10 to 2 technique.

    L is my surname. Tell you at the next meet what is stands for.

    I think your root cause analysis is spot on. Another 10 seconds and I would have gone.

    You just parked your car in the wrong place, you should be aware of **** drivers and park/make allowances accordingly

    Like I said before....Women and machinery don't mix.......reproduced without kind permission of the Titanic films script writers.

    Isn't it funny how they all seem to go for a yuck coloured Peugeot traffic jam maker.
