The little blue car was almost certainly a Granny Mobile with every pedal being the brake… Or the accelerator!

Ok. Get yourself a cheap runaround third party or no insurance then get behind the wheel and drive it like you stole it. Crashes everyday now like this becoming the norm. My damage rating 4 out of 10 plus1 for the sign nobody read 5/10. Sweet more soon please.
