Well I had an interesting day Thursday I drove the wife son and grandson to Newark to buy the grandson his first car. Follows the sat nav as I have not been that way for years, 2 miles from destination on the A46 at an island told to turn right outside lane road markings turn right only inside lane straight on only. Road clear drove onto island and a large Mercedes van with a tail lift drove into my lane hit my front wing and carried straight on. Chased after it and at the next island shouted to them to stop , the woman driver knew nothing of the accident but all very pleasant and exchanged details. Tried to use app on my phone to contact insurance company no luck, stupid new tech ,I hate it , contact them later.
Next day estimate from Audi £3900, try to contact Insurance Company , locked out of my account , stupid new tech, online communication only, hours later they reset my account and it let me in, stupid new tech, found a telephone number and reported accident gave all details, all done, I just have to send dashcam clip. How do I do that, how does dashcam work, stupid new tech, finally have a copy on my laptop, tried to attach it to email ,too big, stupid new tech. Grandson HELP, 2minutes and he has done it, stupid new tech, its for kids only.
Phoned Insurance today, all ok dashcam proves it was her fault, without dashcam clip I would have no chance of proving it was her fault, isn't this new tech a marvellous thing we should have more of this.
Things have changed since my last insurance claim, 49 years ago, all I had to do then is complete one claim form and draw a diagram. I hope it is 49 years before the next one.
