  1. Ok, I guess my thinking was if they were loading the cars to close to carry more, are they not putting profit before safety?Obvious I have a duty of care but surely so do they when deciding how far apart to park the cars?Akin I suppose to a football ground, if they let too many people in to a small space, They'd be liable for injuries as a result.
  2. I might phone him tonight and see how what he thinks/ plans to do.Thanks for your time.
  3. I have just foudn this on the AA website,As soon as your car is involved in an accident you need to take the following steps to ensure you do not break the law. If, as a driver, you are involved in a road-traffic accident and one or more of the following occurs: •a person, other than yourself, is injured •damage is caused to another vehicle or to someone else's property•an animal has been killed or injured, except in your own vehicle or trailer (an 'animal' is defined as 'any horse, cattle, ass, mule, sheep, pig, goat or dog')As I currently believe no damage was done, I believe there as been no accident. But I'm not 100% on thishere is the aa link http://www.theaa.com/motoring_advice/legal-advice/at-the-accident.html
  4. Indeed, he took my phone number and name, possibly registration. He did say he doubted anything would come of it. Having offered to call him to give him my details that evening he said no need he'd call me if anything arose....I have his number so could call him....
  5. Ok, just to clarify they don't have my insurance details.And was recorded as no visable damage.
  6. hello, I was recently involved in an incident. Hopefully as there was no visable damage I wont have a claim made against me.the other driver said he didn't think it'd go any further and if so he'd phone me.Reading this in my policy document;If you or your car are involved in any type of claim or loss, you must tell us about the incident within 48 hours.Would this 48hrs be from the time of the incident or the time he (shoudl he call) phones me to make the claim?Thanks never had to make a claim or had a claim against me so new to this.
  7. Thank you for your response and time. I think the thing is I feel I wasn't 100% to blame, especially due to the distance I was instructed to park from the other car. Whether thats because it recently happened or my own bias I was unsure so thought I'd ask opinions. Crem, do you believe I'm 100% at fault you can be blunt. I think thats what you are suggesting with your comment about the driver alone being in control of the car. Thanks
  8. Ah ha but you'd normally leave space for that not to happen ;o)
  9. You can pass your driving test if you stall the car.
  10. They simple edge you forward with hand signals, and tell you when to stop. Which I did, I then stalled.
  11. Yes I shall next time one lesson learnt.As for a judge, I would simply say/ argue normally I would leave a greater distance to allow room for such instances.Surely they shoudl also consider this wehn advising people how close to park or settign such distances.Thoughts?
  12. I appreciate what your saying but they have to surely consider safety and property?Maybe they shouldn't put as many cars on....I dunno I've never had a crash and maybe that irratates me.
  13. No visable damage, so hopefully nothing will come from it.My point is if you park somewhere or stop in traffic you allow space for such instances!?Surely they can be neglegent in such instance?They took pictures of our cars once I asked for an employee number.
