when the plods turned up the driver of the car came out with the classic .......so sorry officer but i didnt see him coming !! (w****r) even though i had a set of twin halogen head lights on at the time
To me the old saying 'I didn't see him coming' should carry a prison sentence or better still a stab in the eyes with a screwdriver should be allowed
I don't know if it was a dusky afternoon and he was driving a silver car or I was just 8 months pregnant, but i just DIDN'T SEE HIM I just remember a bump, I stopped and there was no one there, I didn't know what to do then a voice said "are you OK love" I looked out and it was the man I'd hit
I was so embarrassed, I wrote him off
it's still a blur to me but he was soo wonderful and understanding, it can happen that you just don't see them. I've been back ended twice by people that hadn't seen me stop, even though it wasn't a sudden stop by any means and they have both accepted liability without question, so I didn't see him sometimes is valid.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
