      Car smashed!

      Out for a drive yesterday, crossing a small roundabout and driver pulls out of the roundabout and smashes into the side of us! Their fault totally but I'm without a car cos the passenger window won't go up! Hoping to get a hire car tomorrow! It's just so inconvenient! All parties involved were ok so that's a bonus! Any similar stories?

      I don't want to come accross as an Oz basher (would I do that?) but the aussie drivers are the worst i've ever experienced... including driving the notorious Paris ring road, the race track that is rome, Malaga where parking sensors are bumpers, I even got a tuc tuc to drive me from khao san road Bangkok to the airport via the motoway.. None of this was as bad as the driving in australia.

      Still got a hire car over a week later, courtesy of those that hit us! I hate hire cars I'm always nervous driving them, just in case lol!
