    Reminds me of my old driving instructor, who had anger-management issues. He would sometimes lean across me while I was driving, just to bang his hand on the wheel to hoot at someone who had angered...

    Cheers Smudger, my former life in law might have been showing there. Don't practise any more though!

    I should have made it clearer - despite my rather long-winded advice, OP will - as others have...

    Wow - I was going to say "contact the police" until I read to the bottom and saw they weren't interested.

    The non-fault driver may be unfairly/fraudulently penalised due to the at-fault driver...

    A cheque from the insurer or for personal injury?

    If personal injury, then OK, but if regarding car insurance payout, very odd.

    I find this kind of situation annoying because regardless of whether a light is green or red, and regardless of whether another driver has done something wrong, some people will just drive and crash...

    Slightly off topic and reactive, but a response to the frequently bounded "just save sensibly" advice from those who think it's black and white.

    You have a comfortable job, as does your spouse....
  7. Believing/assuming you had cover is not a defence...

    Believing/assuming you had cover is not a defence in these cases and will never be accepted on its own as a reason for leniency.

    Of course it's your right to challenge it in court, and a small...

    People don't come on here to be admonished for their mistakes, which, regardless of criticism, cannot be undone as they are in the past. And this person did not try to excuse his/her error in any...

    Sorry to hear of your situation. In the long term, if you can afford to be in overdraft for a short time or borrow a bit of money somehow, it would be less costly than accepting the 3 points instead...

    I was also a bit surprised by the response, seeing as in the OP's description, the other guy is clearly 100% to blame regardless of whether the OP stopped.

    Santa, I meant some kind of 3-year check...

    The guy who hit you sounds like one of those who sail through the 3-year check with the doctor filling in the form without really bothering to test him, despite being a danger to road users. Makes me...

    Santa: "He will say that he was reversing slowly and carefully and you were too impatient to wait. Without evidence, the insurance Co's will say 50/50."

    I've been in that exact situation several...

    It should be clear from the scratches as to who hit whom. I.e. if you have a scratch on the side of your car and his is on the back, he can't very easily say that your car hovered sideways into his.

    I'm surprised that US licence holders have to take a UK test if coming here to live, when, as Smudger already pointed out, some of the daily driving in eastern Europe is atrocious whereas US/Canada...

    The article says that they "will be introduced next year". Nothing more precise than that.

    I have lived in three other countries: France, Luxembourg and Belgium. In all three, the car is insured, not the driver. The prices I paid were comparable to prices in the UK. They do have a...

    Insurers are allowed to make sweeping and often unfair stereotypes with regard to age, location and occupation that no other industry would ever be allowed to do.

    I agree with Smudger but it will be 100% the van driver's fault as the car driver had right of way, regardless of how stupid they were not to just stop and wait.

    I have been in an almost identical...

    You mentioned it briefly, and I would follow up on this - try doing a test outside of London. Surrey, Essex, etc., wherever is easier to get to.

    London has by far the lowest pass rates in the UK,...
