Hi I've recently started delivering for a local farm - driving their sprinter-style van.
It's a good ten years old, done 160 on the clock and, as far as I can tell, has been driven through country lanes all its life without windscreen damage.
However my record isn't so good - with three chips in under two months! They're only small but seem to be occurring with alarming regularity!
One happened when a passing lorry kicked up a stone, one happened as I was alone on a country lane and driving pretty conservatively, and the latest occurred when the car in front appeared to kick up a rogue pebble
Of course I am aware that driving too fast and too close to drivers in front can make you prone to this irritating phenomenon... but in my own judgement I can't say I'm guilty of these bad habits as a general rule .... or at least I don't think I was being reckless or tailgating when the chips occurred.
It's getting a bit embarrassing though! Any tips to avoid these or am I just cursed? lol
