So I'm writing this thread to give you all confidence in a very safe car.
I was driving this morning in very poor conditions. Long story short. The car saved my life. Car does not look to good :-(.
Will give a full account later.
The guy that was at fault was only 21 & very inexperienced. The other driver stopped & gave him a load of verbal. He was driving a brand new Mitsubishi Shogun. TBH the Golf held up pretty well. The police had said if the car never had the numerous airbags, I may not be here.
Not a great start to 2015.
Right, here we go....
My wife said to me not to go to work today due to 3"of snow.
Main roads were clear although they were very slippy. I was following a Smart car down a country lane. Due to the conditions, we were not travelling at more than 40 mph.
We were on a straight road, when a car skidded out of a side road into are road of travel. The Smart car swerved around him & nearly hit a car head on coming in the other direction.
I decided to swerve left down the side road, which resulted in my car sliding side ways into his car. Drivers window smashed then car slid into a ditch and landed on the drivers side.
All air bags deployed. Apart from a broken rib & bruising, I live to see another day.
