Unfortunately my Vespa is out of action for a few weeks, as am I.
On my way home from work last Friday a car pulled out on me from a side street. I saw it luckily at the last minute and slammed the breaks on, the scooter went over, i was thrown to the floor, and the scooter went skidding into the car. I was a split second from hitting it full on at roughly 25mph.
The road in the opposite direction was queuing, and he said someone flashed him to tell him it was ok to pull out. Cheers for that.
Quick trip to A&E in the ambulance, luckily no breaks, but im in agony with my left arm/shoulder.
Scooter gets picked up tommorrow for repair, hopefuly it's mainly just paintwork and a new bumper thats needed.
Thankfuly the police attended and took statements, and he was very apologetic and sorry aparantly so hopefuly there will be no problem with the insurance...
Has anyone got any advice?
