One of my mates reversed into a fire engine. Apparantly he'd stopped for some fags on way work, got back in the car, started engine and dropped his lighter.
Whilst digging his lighter out from beneath the seat the firemen parked behind and went into the shop. Matey reversed without looking despite him spending a minute or so digging his lighter out. His excuse " wasn't there when I got back into my car "
One of my students bought her first car. On driving home being supervised by her mum it started snowing. She came to a mini roundabout and, because of the snow, the other traffic had gone over the white circle leaving tyre tracks.
Instead of using her common and doing the same because of the weather, she steered around the white circle which, on this roundabout is tight at the best of times and slid off the road and into a lamppost.
That was my fault for teaching her correctly to go round the circle of mini roundabouts when possible.
