Acorns are good for this. I’ve had a SUD or two because I’ve hit an acorn on a corner. The offending Acorn tends to get fired into the undergrowth as well, so it’s like being wiped out by a Ninja.

Thanks, that’s a possibility I guess. Excuse my ignorance but what is a “SUD” ?

Better than the SUCC I had with an Audi TT last year, at a set of traffic lights.

Sudden Unexpected Catastrophic Collision.

The Audi TT with its aluminium bonnet took it quite badly :lol:

SUCC? Searching only turns up a naughty act.
