Thumbs down Just when I thought I couldn't hate Holden even more

So yesterday I avoided what could've been a very nasty accident with a VT dunnydore driven by a stupid female!

I was about 2 car lengths away from her as she was going around the roundabout, I have no idea why but she slammed on her brakes half way around which forced me to hit my brakes. I tried avoiding her as I could've smashed into her, which could've been a nasty mess but I managed to just get past her but I ended up wacking the gutter. I saw smoke and the sound of my car smacking into the gutter made my stomach feel so sick, I was imagining that there was alot of damage to the car. I pulled over and got out to check the damage but the car didn't get a scratch on it, thankfully! The damage was to the rim and the tyre, had it checked out straight away. Was about to sell the wheels too for some others I've got in mind, who's gonna buy them now? Someone above obviously doesn't like me

A pic of the damage



I'm just glad I didn't come out of it alot worse.

Sorry about the damage, but if u were 2 car lengths away and going thru around about and had to swerve to miss her, how quick were you going?

Well there was a bit more distance than that, but I wasn't going that fast

Lucky it was just that. Did she stop and get out and apologise? Or pretend it didn't happen like most idiots on the road today. You can probably get that wheel fixed at a tyre and wheel joint.

Sorry to hear of the damage, that's bad luck... might be an excuse to get the wheels polished if they are in good shape.

The rim should repair okay, with no visible scars. What they can do to a rim these days is amazing!

Re: Just when I thought I couldn't hate Holden even more

I did something similar the other day except it was my fault, didnt see the car. I was lucky I didnt get any damage but it is sure easy to do. Hope the wheel can get repaired and all sorted out.
