FML - The follow-up

Usually they do use Astras, or they also have some police 4 x 4 they use for the stroud valley area in which I live, also they have a newer batch of focus estates. I was very near my own home, I was not "driving irresponsibly" at all. I was in second gear doing 10 mph down my street which -granted- is a slope and is bendy, but I know the road, i've driven in snow here before. Ive got a mk6 golf which has a clearly visible crack in the lower grate and also paintwork damage on the fron

Ah, the voice of reason. The police officer did something responsible drivers do and still had an accident. In the winter, that happens! You seem to imply you think this lets you off the hook—as if you really weren't an irresponsible driver—which would be an illogical conclusion.

Actually, they're still technically responsible for not parking in a way that would avoid an accident (or at least I was about a month ago when I parked in front of my friend's house that just happened to be on the corner of the cul-de-sak). I'd sit their smiling at them. If they asked what was so funny, I'd say "The new Corvette I'm gonna buy with your money."

The sad fact is though that they will probably manage to get away with not having to pay for anything because they work for the city. They'll be some kind of reason as to why it isn't their fault but somehow it is your fault.

Id get out of my car, walk up to their window and go;"You were saying Officer? I think you owe me some money and a damn good apology." Lol...but that would prolly land me in cuffs :P
