ok, im after a few bits of advice here..
i was on my way to a a small gathering at a friends house on friday night (completely sober), on the way i decided to stop at the local bank and get some cash. I drove into the car park which i park in most weekdays and regularly on weeknights. I drove the car around the usual corner and up towards the space that i normally park in (the one closes to the entrance) when suddenly i hit a chain. Now this chain isn't normally here as i annoyingly discovered, it was a very low chain in an area that was very poorly lit, there was a small round blue arrow sign on it but i obviously didn't see that. the chain come up onto the bonnet an across the windscreen...
the damage caused is as follows
- a few scratches to the front bumper and head lights,
- a few nice deep scratches on the bonnet, and it looks as though the bonnet is almost twisted slightly as there is more coverage over the drivers side light
- a badly scratched windscreen, which is across the whole windscreen.
- and a big dent in the right driverside pillar.
once i had pulled away from the chain to inspect the damage, another car did exactly the same as i had and drove straight into the chain!
Im in two minds about this one as really i should have seen the round circle, but it was however relatively low and the chain was very small. If i hadn't seen the other driver do exactly the same i probably wouldn't bother writing to the council but seeing as they did, i'm tempted to now as i'm slightly annoyed.!
also, i was wondering if you guys knew how to get scratches out of windscreens or will i need a replacement? i'm assuming i will!
i have taken pics of the chain in both the dark, and illuminated with my lights, and in both pictures its very hard to spot!
