last week i was in a car accident.

i drive (in the UK) a bmw Z4...its a tiny but fast little car....and on my way down the M6....glad to be driving and not articulated lorry of about 17 tonnes....from europe...decided he wanted to come into the lane i was currently overtaking him in.

his truck was left hand drive (uk vehicles are RHD) so my little car was in his blind spot....and he hit me.....luckily...he realised before my car was pushed under his wheels for him to totally mow me down!!!

Damage wasnt too bad to the car and he's admitted fault....but oh my it was 100% terrifying....and i am very lucky to be here right now.

my point is.......i feel much safer driving a car.......than sitting in a plane

but ive never come closer to catastrophe than this day!!!!

see my point???

I certainly do see your point.

We think that we've got control when we're driving  but this shows that sometimes we don't.
