In the interest of anonymity, please don't name, shame or show registration numbers, if you include pictures. Without going into too much detail, I was in a crash the other week. After attempting to avoid a driver who opted to do a u-turn (without indication or warning) on a major A road, I struck their vehicle, left the road and crashed head first into a tree at ~50mph. Once on the grass, ABS is completely useless obviously! The car was declared Cat B total loss and must never reappear on the roads. I was extremely lucky and if it hadn't been a big heavy and nearly new German car, the outcome may have been a bit different. I'm now back on the road though and quite pragmatic about it all. No point worrying about what may have become! The one thing that has changed: I'm much more wary of other road users intentions now.
