Thread Name: BS: and now - layby rage
Subject: RE: BS: and now - layby rage
Nothing much is going on now I'm back home, I'm doing a lot of sleeping and hobbling around. Just below my left knee is still painful to touch - classic bumper level injury but I was moving away, up onto the grass verge or it could have been a lot worse, particularly if I'd been trapped between the car and the edge of the verge which was over a foot height of soil.

The torch is only a light plastic, the front light for my bicycle, so it would not have done any damage to the car. I was far more concerned for the SPB (that is me) and the hired van with an excess of over eleven hundred pounds on the insurance.

As far as I know there isn't another pull in like that one anywhere close by, and the next layby on the road is far smaller and directly on the road, so the lights of every vehicle passing shine onto those parked there, so hopefully he either had to go on driving for a long way or have the inconvenience of somewhere unsuitable for his purposes.
I'm not really bothered, to be honest, just glad that he left so promptly and I could get to sleep.
