    Can you do a decent repair with a touch-up stick?

    Rather a curbed alloy then something serious, there are some drivers out there that have no care about other road users.
    Important thing was you got away safely and no one was injured.

    You may want to have you tracking checked out too, alignment could have been thrown out or something may have bent.

    Well after my accident I have got my dashboard camera firmly in place in my windscreen.
    Iv'e had a couple of near misses recently but if anything had come of them then the camera never lies.

    You think its bad here, I have just got back from Sicily and I am sure that they are all mad. Nobody uses indicators, it appears that you
    must be on the phone to drive and zebra crossings are for parking on of course. :Wink: Also a duel carriage way is designed so that you
    can drive with one wheel in each lane so you can follow the dotted line just in case you get lost. :Rant:

    I did about 1000km over there and it felt like a stock car race everyday. Never been to a place that has got so many dented cars, old
    and new. :shock:

    St Lucia is 26miles long.
    With pedestrians having right of way they are not afraid to walk out in front of cars.

    Another 'curtisy' thing the drivers do is slam the brakes on and hit the hazards to let people cross.

    Complete craziness for the car behind

    I have fond memories of a hire car Vauxhall Nova in Malta...now those drivers and roads are just insane for such a small island.

    Think Italy but faster and with fewer rules. By the end of the week I'd worked out it was kill or be killed!

    :jock:
