Nearly had an accident

As they say - the more you do something more chance you have of buggering it up !

Well coming home form work this morning (on nights) I turned the corner and my gloves got stuck on the power button.  I nearly hit the wifes car !!!!!!

No no not botherd about her pride and joy ( Spice red smart roadster)  I was more worried about my C5.  I have to keep it looking good :)

..be careful out there guys  :o

There are so few people willing to go out there and use their c5's we can't afford to have any squished  :P

Seriously though, glad no-one is injured. 8)

Has anyone been hurt using a C5 on the road ? I don't recall ever seeing a report anywhere.

I must say I have been impressed by the attidude of local drivers, they give me plenty of room when they overtake.

I use mine to go to work on a couple of times a week, which is about one and a half miles, the cycle paths help (about half of the journey) , but never been close to crashing apart from tipping onto its side, but i was messing about in the snow in the car park at work. its great to see some people's faces when they drive by, even after using mine for a year now, people still look at you with a big smile.
