    What's a bloody windscreen calibration? Is it like striped paint?

    Drivin home & watchin dickheads trying to die - I was back a bit behind 3 cars , the 3rd car ( at the back ) pulled out on a sweeping corner that Iíve overtaken on before as you can see for about a km except on this occasion I could see there was 2 cars coming about 400mts away , I backed off further as I knew it wouldnít end well , everyone braked & dived into the gravel to make room room this cockheads , then stupid squeezed in between the 2 cars he was trying to overtake . Dickheads who obviously canít drive their own finger up their own arse nor judge distances or know their & their vehicles capabilities putting other peopleís lives in danger make me wild , this similar situation happened twice on the way home , I was just glad to get home alive .

    Two things that happen on the same day a about 6 weeks ago.

    1. Earlier this year I dropped off my bumper from my clubsport to be repaired to a bloke that I've met a few times from a Facebook group. He previously painted the rear spoiler and was happy with that. Long story short I changed my mind as I'm now getting the whole car painted. Due to the restrictions we've had down here it took a while before I could get to him. Finally arranged a time to get back to him to pick up my genuine VX fog lights with brackets, got the bar before lockdown. I finally made it there and he handed over these what you see in the picture, 2 mismatched lights 1 oval 1 round, one cracked and one has no plug and insists that these were the lights that came out of my bar. why would I wait so long and go back over 100 km round trip to go get these broken spares that he has lying around.

    These lights are obsolete I managed to buy them two years ago. Now he is the only one that knows what happened to them, sold them on or has a spare set.

    Whatever the case karma will fix him.



    2. This is a a summary of what I sent to Parks Victoria and Knox City council.

    I originally reported this accident to Knox city council and was told a day later that it was Parks Victoria responsibility. Turns out that it's not, just council trying to shift blame.

    This is what I sent to council.

    I pulled into the gravel carpark just past the roundabout at Wantirna Reserve on Mountain Highway Wantirna, to park to make a phone call, on the way in I noticed a pothole just past the entrance of the carpark. On the way out, I avoided the pothole, but by doing so my front right wheel just clipped and fell into the culvert end, where the culvert runs underneath the road. This was hard to see as it was in a ditch and not easily noticeable, there are no markings or signage. This has damaged the front and underside of my car on the right side near the wheel. I have made an insurance claim for the damage and will be seeking the full amount of my excess.

    I have attached photos of what happen. You can see that in one of the photos there are timber bollards that have been knocked down, that shows me that this or something similar has happen recently.

    Can the pothole be filled and some markings installed, maybe a white pole with a reflector on it on both sides so this doesn't happen to anyone else? This was suggested by one of your staff from council.

    Regards.


    I did get a reply, not from council, but their lawyers Echelon. They sent me a Request for compensation form. All pretty straight forward until you get to page 3 THE ROAD MANAGEMENT ACT 2004. Basically it says that if my request is for damage from a roadway I need to pay the first $1460.00 regardless of liability.

    WHAT A LOAD OF

    How can this be right.

    We pay council to maintain things through our rates and I damage my car in their reserve and I'm left paying the bill.

    I'm going to follow this through with my insurance as I have provided them the details to the other party involved (council). I'm not going to hold my breath tho.

    That was a shit day...

    There was a bit of damage underneath to the radiator support and I had to explain to the wife what I did you here car too.

    Yep, it's easy to spot the folks from the big smoke, they're all clean and shiny, their cars, their kids, themselves. Nothing wrong with that, just saying they're easy to spot. We followed some home this arvo. They braked for the emus over in the right hand side miles away, they braked for the crow on the road and turned last minute down a road to somewhere.

    They're a PITA really when you just wanna get somewhere, slowing down to look at the kangaroos or shit, or there's a bump in the road, but I do the same thing when I'm away, so I'm no better I guess.
