6:15 am, main road through the village (30mph, dead straight for 3/4 mile) and my transit van, parked in a row of other cars, was hit by a Polish Immigrant in a Vauxhall Omega.
HE stopped 50 metres down the road, but only because his front nearside wheel had been pushed back to the door pillar at 45 degrees.
Police arrive, breathalyse him and he fails.
When they took a second sample at the nick WHEN AN INTERPRETER ARRIVED 2 HOURS LATER he was just under the limit.
This guy was driving on his Polish licence, and had NO INSURANCE. When I spoke to the copper that nicked him, he told me he could only be charged for the insurance offence and would probably get a £100 fine, plus 6 penalty points IF HE EVER APPLIES FOR A BRITISH LICENCE !!
My van was off the road (no work for me) for a week, cost £150 excess on the insurance policy, and wiped out 3 years no claims - on my Van, my Laguna and my Chrysler.
