I'm starting to suspect a conspiracy here.
They're out to get you.

At least the Tango will be skinny enough to miss the crazies.

@Richo yes just the imiev for now till tango.

I wanna get to 160k kms in imiev, which should be in about 5 weeks.

Something to do with 8 year / 160k km warrranty on battery in the US.

Have also unreserved model 3.

Have put a fun reservation for a Bollinger b1 and EOI for LEVC TX.

Taycan needs $2500 EOI deposit; forget that.

Put in EOI for Audi etron, even had a call today from Perth Audi Centre, love the 22kW AC option and off-road capabilities that would kill a model X. Not that I would take it off-road

Maybe she was on the wrong side because she was a bad driver period or incapacitated somehow.

A bit of Googling will help you discover that research around the world shows that female drivers are less accident-prone than male drivers and also have less serious accidents. So Joseph was far more likely to be hit by a male driver so he was doubly unlucky!

crash stats :o
https://www.greenslips.com.au/interesti ... stics.html

Still the stats don't really show that Jane goes out once a day and John is out 6 times a day.
Jane drives 10 under in a new car with fluffy airbags and John is frustrated at Jane driving 10 under causing him to crash his 20 old year car and gets seriously injured.
You know woman does something stupid and man gets seriously injured.

But facts don't lie...

so Jane is cautious, aware that she is driving a lethal weapon, and John is an impatient yobo who just HAS to get to his destination 1 minute earlier - and you take his side?
You were under 25 and male once. I get it.
Young males are di@#$&is on the road - sometimes.

Ya, what he said!

I've done it myself years ago, but we really don't need to be where we're going that minute or 5 early. If we did, we'd leave a minute or 5 earlier so we didn't have to risk life and limb getting there on time!

I watched a young guy scream past me in a 100kph zone.
Looses control, smacks the inside lane barrier, swerves to the outside lane and crash into a tree.
100kph+ into a tree!

He got out of that without a scratch - through the back door mind you.
He didn't want me to call the police because he was drunk.
Like way drunk.
The police attend serious crashes anyway - so he was outta luck.
I was on my way home from an AEVA meeting.

I have seen a young woman do the a similar thing - except she was doing just 100kph - not speeding.
Her car got caught in the sand trap causing her car to roll rather than hitting the tree.
That was poor driving rather stupid driving given she wasn't even drunk.

Luckily they aren't part of the statistics pool.
I bet if Joseph was hit by a male driver it was because of his intent to be going the wrong way.
