Never seen that ad. I dont get to watch TV anymore lol. But yes, sounds similar. I wasn't standing right next to my car though. I was watching at a distance.
When my car was just 3 weeks old, I was in the ACT doing some shopping. I saw this old guy getting out of his beaten up Kia Rio and happily slammed his door into my door. Big chip out of the paint that now started rusting 2 year later.
I got his numberplate, make and model and age of the car.
I asked him if he thought it was ok to bash his door into my car. His reply was:" Well girly, I couldn't get out of me car. So I had no choice. Besides that's what ya get with a new car. Ya can't stop people from damaging yer car. Its gonna happen, look at my car!"
Yes his car was covered in 100's of little (rusting) dents and scratches. But just because his car is ready for the wreckers, doesn't means he has the right to turn my NEW car into a rustbucket like his
I took his details to the AFP and they made up a report. 2 years later I still haven't heard back from it. So I learned that the cops wont do anything about it, so sometimes you need to take matters into your own hands. Hence me replying with a little scratch on that huge 4WD.
We told her she would have to pay for it, and she responded that she didn't have insurance. That's not really our problem, so we just took a photo of her licence plate and the damage and took it to the police station. The police looked her up, rang her mobile and hey presto! she pays for the damage!
AFP is a bit slack I guess. I wasn't living in the ACT at the time. Just visiting. I wonder if the police up here would've been different.
If you're going STRAIGHT through a roundabout, dont indicate right then left....I dont care if it is the law, its f**ked up and doesnt help anybody!
Oh is that the one where you Indicate as you enter then indicate as you leave the roundabout. I thought that was just a nsw thing. Not the law!
I think it became the law a few years ago but I could be wrong. Either way, its stupid and not helpful at all. I understand indicating out of the roundabout but not when you enter it.
Even though we are all waiting to turn let's fly up the inside and push in!!!
