The mx5 was slowing for the junction, Renault behind didn’t see it braking and indicating, and shunted the mx5 into a hedge. Both drivers ok. Minor injuries.

Hi Lee, yes, I believe the police officers have contact details for you that they need to pass on to him.
Not sure how to get your details via here without it being made public.

Official term for reporting it is careless driving, the officer using that term was obviously not a traffic cop.

It is a difficult junction. I use it every day, coming out of Coleman’s onto Whitehouse Road is awful, one has to pull right out to see either way and the hedges could do with a trim. At this junction, it’s not always down to bad driving.

If a vehicle collides with the rear of another that is careless driving no ifs or buts.

May not be relevant to this occasion but I agree, the whole hedge needs to be removed at that corner. It just isn’t possible to see what is coming from the left when exiting Colman’s Lane. That would be a very positive, inexpensive measure to improve road safety.
