I just googled "list of genders" and that popped up

20 seconds of my life.

(My main issue was someone was clearly suggesting it must have been a woman driver, it absolutely must have been, but there was no reporting on the details of the driver, but because a really silly incident occured then oh my god it must have been a woman, what WAS she doing out of the kitchen / out of the bedroom / unleashed in a car and who the hell gave her a driving lisence anyway?. Men drive like dheads too and have also been known to get confuzzled with the controls of a car. There are some right old fuddy duddys on here with really old fashioned / antiquated views on the world)
Couldn't agree more.

It depends, if I sit in a Range Rover and you're next to me I may not see you.

On the motorway with plenty of distance it's the opposite.
Then you're really not paying attention. They may be low compared to normal cars, but they are still high enough that they should be perfectly visible - even next to an SUV. The top of a McLaren roof - which is after all the type of car damaged here - is higher than the bottom of the window in a typical SUV.
Definition of typical SUV lol.

I think I've made my point clear.

I am not here to explain visibility in all possible scenarios.

You will see and hear me.
Really, I have never worried about being driven over by an SUV.

We should all make our own balanced, assessment of relative risks.
Though that seems to be going out the window these days......

I ride 5,000+ miles a year on a motorbike.

Agree on the above but when I blat around in my S1 Elise I do get a touch nervous around enormous SUV’s and the like. I sat next to something SQ7? At the lights recently and I was admiring the ginormous 22” wheels and tyres the top of which felt like they were higher than my eyeline. I generally try to leave a bit of extra room when possible. It certainly focuses the attention.

If you can't see a 720 then there's no chance of seeing a child, shopping trolley, person in a wheelchair, guard rail, bollard, or dwarf.

Some tt in an Audi selects Drive rather than reverse, trashes a nearly new McLaren and a couple of posters think it's the McLaren owners fault for being stupid enough to drive a car like that in an urban environment, and for parking where the other cars do?

At the risk of being blunt - there are some absolute fkwits on this forum sometimes.
I completely agree ... they are unworthy of any response that feeds their provocative idiocy.

Glad I am not the only one, you got my point.

Not drunk, but I can re phrase: I wouldn’t recommend to anyone the use of a supercar in an urban environment, unless you want to take the risk to have your car destroyed like the aboove.

He has a McLaren based posting history. No idea if that is relevant.

You mean no one sober like you and a bunch of others.

I’ve already explained my view and a chap above at least has got my point.

Feel free to carry on w/o me.

Thanks, now I suggest you step up your game and call the police for a proper investigation.

This thread is absolute class! I’ve got my popcorn and I’m settling in to watch the comedy unfold.

The mental leap required to go from ‘poor bloke has pride and joy crashed into in supermarket’, to ‘all supercars are death traps but only when driven in urban environments’, is awe inspiring.
