So, on my commute home a flat back builders wagon passes too close and hits me from behind / side (hope district rear light and fibre flare on rucksac – all pretty bright!): wing mirror hit my shoulder and something hit my ankle. At this point the driver must have seen me and swerved right, but then had to quickly swerve left (possibly to correct path and avoid oncoming traffic), this manover meant that a 5l diesel / petrol tank and a bit of sand / rubble etc. fell of the back of his van into the road.
I stopped, a little shook up! and builder’s wagon drove off without waiting to see if I was ok, pick up their diesel tank etc. So I took a little time to gather myself, picked up the diesel tank and called the police (didn’t get the registration, but did get the company name).
The Police are coming around to take a statement in the morning, so we will see how that goes, but with no real damage and no witness I am not expecting much.
However! - The company is a local builder, they have a twitter page, I have never really bothered with twitter – however this may the opportunity to start!
Any advice / ideas on what to post on their site? If nothing else, it will be good therapy for me (so a bit of banter at their expense would be just fine!).
