Luckiest man alive
Well it starts out.........
I get pulled over by the police for a tail light out whilst I was cruising round town 'looking for something to play with'!
Now, normally, I would just go home at this point thinking my time is done for this evening and i shouldnt be out anyway with a defecvtive bulb. (which, to be fair, no one should be driving knowingly with a defective bulb either)
"Best to get it replaced at the soonest possible time I can" as i said to the police, who incidently had nothing to say other than "please get your light fixed"
(i.e the next morning when the car part stores are open I will be replacing the bulb).
Anyway, to cut a long story short............
I decided that town wasnt 'working' tonight as it normally does so I headed out of town to a place called Saltash
when I arrived there I had another police (not polite) welcome, again about my tail light!!!
(At least the police are 'policing' for a change i guess!!)
To which I told them that I had already been 'notified' of the situation and I was intending to resolve the issue as soon as i could.........
HERE IT STARTS..........
So Im here in a new county, driving along in the dark, all the time thinking "I like this outta town shit!" nothing to bother me at all, even though its dark I can get my right hammer down!!
Fair enough, but when i come accros a f**king tractor blocking my route I Immediately attempt to find a way around him......................
Well I pulled out as i couldnt see any lights from other cars approaching...........
MUCH TO MY DISMAY.....
There was a (Dick head) BMW comming round the corner!!
Now maybe i miss judged my situation (no lights visable that i could see) but I had no choice but to mount the very steep verge to avoid a collision!! (I went to the right whilst the BMW tucked into my left VERY narrowly avoiding the tractors arse end wheel)
'From what i saw in my mirror' anyway!!
Ok, I do accept I should have been a little more Weary of this situation but this car came out of no where, no lights reflecting off the hadges or a haze appearing from the main beams that you would normally see!
Now I have a scraped bumper (nothing too serious) but I feel so lucky to have avoided tis accident, It was VERY close
