    At least the C was awarded 5 stars in the NCAP ratings, so if it happens, there are few better places to be.

    Actually, this is the sight that always worries me -

    It's completely unfair, as she is a much safer driver than I am - I'm far more likely to be the one who stuffs it badly.

    It's just that she takes it to places it shouldn't go, where bad things happen - like supermarket car parks.
    Then she quite unreasonably parks it in a convenient space with cars on either side, whereas I park in splendid isolation miles away from the store, because I of course can tell which cars have bad drivers even when they're empty.
    She just doesn't understand.   <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>

    Guy,

    I'm totally on your side...They just don't understand when you park in the far corner of the carpark why your doing it....
    Just because you then need a bus ride to the super market door, they see that as a problem.....

    But can anyone explain why, when I park in the furthest corner of an empty car park, some always comes and parks sooooooooo close that it is difficult to get in/out of the car?!!
