I'm not greatly impressed with John Lewis. I bought this laptop from there and they recorded the extended warranty as a freezer and made some comment about food storage. When there was a problem with the hard disk within the warranty they wanted to take it away for a month or more. I complained and the service engineer tried to open the hard disk bay with a penknife. He took it away for a few days, tried to fit a disk half the original size and was upset when I wouldn't accept it. When it did come back, the computer had been scratched. Also, when I phoned JL they told me to phone HP instead. HP told me to b****r off. So back to JL. So, "I feel your pain!" (with JL insurance, not with the crash).Avoid John Lewis insurance, they are just brokers. JL even gave me the wrong number to phone in their documentation, worse, a number for the wrong insurance firm.
Surprised you were allowed to photograph it. I wasn't allowed to photograph mine when it was in a secure yard - next time I'll have a dash cam when I go to unload a car from such a place. The yard our car ended up at was a privately owned one, but many vehicles there were under police impound from accidents.Toyota auris hybrid ts. It is in the police pound so the Focus may be fine.
No, she didn't have damage to her sternum, just the ankle and stomach. I couldn't believe how many airbags there were in the car, I think we counted seven of them as there were ones in both fron foot wells as well as the dash and steering wheel.Amazing story. Did your wife get this fractured sternum we both got? Very painful when you cough!
Yes, the crash systems do a good job at protecting passengers by sacrificing the car, in our case the front foot of it.
haha, amazing how the possibility of it happening to them makes them get a move on.I learnt to drive at 25, and 45 years later this is my first accident, though cars I have had have been damaged before when I was not in them. One time, I had agreed to trade in a car and someone smashed into its rear in a very small supermarket carpark. Another time, a 3 month old car parked in a cul de sac had its side smashed in by someone reversing into it at night. It was the days of local bobbies, and I happened to have parked exactly where one of those usually parked his car. I still can't believe how quickly he found the culprit.
I'm mystified why there are no longer signs at the approach to motorways declaring the restrictions. Hell, there are motorway approaches around here that don't even advise the change of speed limit.
You are supposed to know the national speed limit and restrictions on the various roads and for your type of vehicle. You are expected to recognise when the spacing of lamp posts means that the speed limit is 30 mph in a built up area. Why waste money putting signs up and maintaining them?
"Supposed to know" may be the intention, but many don't (or have forgotten, or think they might get away with it... which they probably will with the current state of policing).Money was no object when they were imposing those ridiculous 20mph zones everywhere round here. There are probably more 20 signs than 30 signs now. Then councils are bleating poverty at every opportunity. But we're drifting on to the Driving and Roads thread again...
Well, around Weston Village (Bath) they've been painting cycle logos on the road and dedicating half of it for those buggers where there's hardly room for cars to pass anyway. Since when did cyclists pay towards the provision and upkeep of roads (general taxation notwithstanding)?There was a report from Bath last week that the introduction of 20 zones had put the accident rate up, but the council hadn't got the money to remove all these damned signs etc. Funny how they found the money to waste in the first place to introduce them.
