Just had a heart stopping moment coming onto a slip road to a dual carriageway.

I usually drive very slowly these days as I like the thought of keeping my car for years, and I was certainly being more carefull than usual given the arctic conditions, however....

half spun it coming onto the sliproad bend, couldn't have been doing much more than 35mph, tried to correct with the throttle which overcorrected and clipped the curb puncturing the tyre.

Could of been alot worse, thankfully the tyre took all the damage, no damage what so ever to the car :whistling: worse thing was changing a tyre in arctic conditions, I think I earned my man badge of honour tonight :)

I think I'll neglect to pay my council tax this month in response to their incompetence in gritting procedures :tsktsk:

EDIT:- just to add it's an auto aswell which didn't help matters :duh:
