After a brilliant Friday when I got good news about my DLA I came down to earth with a crash on Saturday.
We were hit by an uninsured driver who either jumped a red light or who took a gamble on amber. Our lovely car has been written off - just 2 weeks after we had it serviced and MOTd and a week after I paid for a year’s new road tax (disn’t know I had got DLA then).
The impact pushed us into a car parked at the side of the road and that probably wrote that car off too.
To add insult to injury, the (deleted word x 1000) who hit us had - relatively - little damage to his car.
Because he wasn’t insured it is likely that our insurers will take the easy was out and treat it as a fault claim against us (at least with regards to the car we were pushed into) which is s****y but, even if they didn’t our insurance will be going through the roof at renewal time next month.
And it’s all the fault of a little (deleted word x 1million) who thought it was OK to drive his dad’s car without permission
The only good thing is that neither my husband (who was driving) or myself were hurt. I’ve been trying to keep a brave a face on it for Dai’s sake (he’s in bits) but I could have been a widow today. But I’m not.
Thank for letting me rant guys.
(Oh and we are supposed to be moving from London to Cardiff in the next two weeks and we have no car. Don’t think that they let disability scooters on the M4
