I seen a black lamp post as it bounced off the bonnet of my car, I had to swerve a few times before I hit it!! lol.
I thought the lamp post looked a bit out of place, so I couldn’t avoid giving it a little kink to match!! lol

on a serious note though without knowing the circumstances I hope the driver was legal, and ok, but I am guessing as he/she didn’t do a runner then they must have been legally driving.
