    I know it's wrong but as the phone was handy the picture had to be taken.
    The sharp eyed will see why!

    I'm guessing that says "keep your distance" on the bootlid. Perhaps it was added after someone had failed to, in the hope of preventing further incidents...

    The number plates also looks like it's trying to repeat what the driver said when he felt the impact.

    I also think it looks like the car was reversed into something.

    I spy with my little eye a second rear view mirror. Methinks driving instructor has taken his signs off very quickly and they are on their way "home"

    ^ Well spottted

    Looks like a learner car, stickers, extra mirror, type of car....

    I wonder if the learner has just done it.

    When I first looked at the picture I will admit I read the number plate as something that rhymes with booked.

    but I have been on the vino this fine evening :)

    A learner will have braked sharply and an inattentive driver had rammed the back end, happens a lot to driving school cars, hence the keep your distance sticker.

    It's odd because along this line of 'apt signs', I've seen more than once a 'Child on board' or some such similar signs on some cars.

    So, in some small way they are hoping other people will drive more carefully around them...

    Then I notice they are smoking in the car with the child.

    So rather the child have a potentially quick death from a crash, they would rather a slow and painful gradual death via cancer or heart disease.

    How thoughtful.

    I'm intrigued by the ones that say "Little princess on board", or similar. Why on earth would the royal family wish to attract attention to themselves in this way, and what on earth are doing conveying their heirs presumptive in such ropey econoboxes? :dk:

    I can see two.

    Which reminds me. Today I saw a car with two Satnav proudly in the middle of the screen.

    I thought perhaps a Transit van had hit it.

    Almost as hilarious as "Driver on board". The owner of a car with that in the rear window must be a hoot at parties...
