She is quite correct, those gloves don't match the rest of her outfit!

looks like it is the trucks fault but how many times have you seen dodgy and not up to standard lights on trailors ,not the first time a worn plug has been pushed in the socket and the indicators then work the wrong way round ,even the buzzer will work,driver indicates left but the trailor lights flash right. i did that once had some one check the lights working before we set off ,yes all working the reply ,stopped outside my house my house after a 70mile journey and a car pulls up and says do you know that when you indicate left the trailors showing right ,eeeerrrrr no ,

I'm surprised at that-the only time I managed to push a worn plug into the socket it blew a lighting fuse on the car.

1st Outing!

The 585 was on its 1st trip to the Austrian lakes (from memory) and had not been spashed yet.
The truck driver fell asleep ond ran into the back of the queue of traffic entering a tunnel, It seems the couple of caravans and cars did most of the stopping work and the 585 was the final handbrake!
The boat in under insurance review at the moment but the owner had asked for another one!
Better luck next time !

I've been watching the outcome of this one with interest - in fairness, it does sound like right story - wrong location! There is no excuse for falling asleep at the wheel of one of those things .
