Shunted on the way home .....
« on: 08 February 2018, 12:49:22 »

 ..... last night while in my Fortwo Smart by a Land Rover Sport. Though I've yet to get under & have a proper look, my Smart seems unscathed. His MOT ran out 2 Jan 2018, do I give hi me the benefit of the doubt?

What doubt? Did he hit you or not?  If he did, he is responsible. >:(

If he has insurance then yes, his vehicle will not be covered but, the third party will be.....it wont be good for him though as he's looking at the policy being cancelled and a black mark on his record.

Nope, report it to your insurance company......as you are contractually obliged to.

My neighbour is a copper. I asked him about it & he says that plod generally give people about 6 weeks grace for no MOT.  :-\

Been under the car this afternoon & with exception of a clip holding a panel in place at the side of the centre Brabus exhaust being dislodged, all is really as it should be. I suppose it says something of Smart in the fact that 850kg stood up to 2 tonne plus of LR

The trouble with being an up standing member of the community & doing things as we should is that insurers tend to bite hoth parties on the bum come renewal time

I watched an episode of Fifth Gear where they smashed a smart into a solid concrete block at 30mph, 50 and 70. Even after the 70mph collision the protective cage was intact. They said it made no difference to the driver, however, because coming down from 70 to 0 is most definitely not good for the human body. Your brain would hit your skull and your internal organs would hit your rib cage.
Nice.

Yep, even if there's no claim. Bastards.
