What is it with these fields, hedges, lamp posts and other inanimate objects jumping out in front of cars! How dare they! Please erect signs, beware of, Hedge and Field, and leave the mashed up metal where it lies as a warning to other car drivers. I shall be driving very carefully later, just in case.
