    That's awful! We had a pedestrian hit and seriously injured in the CBD a few days ago by an old bloke in a car. I think the elderly are the scariest drivers!

    Glad to hear you're OK, and I hope you can get the scooter fixed OK. If the frame's bent, the old idiot could be up for lots of $$$s.

    oh Josh! That's awful! Steve@Ace usually sends people to Motorcycle Panel & Paint in Osborne Park.

    SO glad you're ok! We prefer you to be shaken & not broken.

    Re: just got hit by car

    Hey Josh, Been there, done that. It sucks! Have you got insurance? Much damage? Did you go over to the side, or just take the impact from the rear?

    Did he just "not see you"?

    Glad you are ok.

    Glad to read you are unscathed joshzingzing. Even if Vespa is not. I fear those right hand turns.

    Its time to identify those nannies. Yes bring in the S plate. And submit these offenders to driving tests. Make that apply to all those so called senior citizens. My 12 year old son thinks the S plate is a great idea too.  Then it will be beware that illuminated RED S plate slowly approaching us from behind or dawdling aimlessly in front of us.

    You are not the first on this forum to be victim of our aging population. Lets manage it better. Get them off the road if they cannot prove they are capable of being there and those that are, S them.

    Re: just got hit by car

     im not sure what  to do

    ill have to get a list of parts and prices

    mudguard ,rear light assembly ,indicators, legshield trim ,engine side panel ,kickstart lever, brake lever

    the back of the frame will need some panel beating also the legshield will too

    and the new mudguard and side cowl will need painting

     

    guess ill work out what to do during the week

     

    yes i have insurance the bloke said he'd pay for everything though

     

    he hit the accelerator instead of the brake right behind me,, i gave him an earfull when i stood up..i  thought he was trying to kill me

    dont get struck by a truck

    Just read your last sentence joshzingzing. Report this accident to the Police if you have not already. Get this aged incompetent off the road before he does more than cause an innocent like you serious grief with your scooter.
