Went to Rotterdam by car during my summer vacation, out of Germany. I hated driving the ridiculous speed limit in the Netherlands, but on the other hand, it was kinda relaxing to just swim around in traffic at a hundred, instead of constantly being stressed out by delivery vans riding your rear bumper at 180 all the time. But a permanent speed limit of a hundred would probably break me or land me in prison or poverty
Yea its annoying the speedlimit, but once u get used towards it its not that bad really. And about speeding, with the prices of the fines u will soon start to fall in line or indeed go bankrupt. The fines are no joke.
Holy cow, that's crazy! As in the definition of "insane". Really curious as to his intentions, and, it's a miracle neither you or any other rule-following drivers were seriously hurt.
It remains to be seen if it's a miracle the Human Torpedo is ok. You'll need to update us if/when the courts make a verdict on him!
Yea i will keep it updated.
A small update right now, the trailer had such a high impact from energy from the fan, the entire metal that is supposed to support the trainer which are big beams is bend. So that's a lot of force. How the front hasn't snapped off nobody knows.
Jesus dude i hope you are okay.
Can't the insurance pay the damage to your car since it is fully his fault?
My family died 8 months ago, but everything is still very much mixed in with heritages. I have a sister ( last family member alive) that executing ww3 with me at this point as my dad told he had more then he actually had, and she's mad at me for not mentioning it ( even while i had no clue ) so she tries basically to cull my side of the Heritage with all kinds of bullshit lawsuits etc etc. so everything is a pain in the ass to deal with already.
The fan is basically still signed on my dad's company because i can't write the fan over without my sister permission which she doesn't want to do. She doesn't want to sell it off either, she wants to keep it, but can't because it has rich people tax on it called bpm that has to be paid which the fan is not worth anymore as its a import from Germany when it was originally bought. So its basically in a stale mate on that front. This also results in every insurance being pushed managed through my dad company, even while i do the work with my own company and use it for that completely i can't insure it because i do not own it through that. So i am not sure at this point if the insurance that is basically sueing that company where the guy is from, but also the guy itself which gets dealt with will end up in my pocket or if it goes straight towards the Heritage account which means most of my money falls away towards my sister or goes straight into debt.
Basically the guy, deleted my company entirely with his shit.
For anybody in the know for fans, that thing costs a fucking fortune. A new one in the same state is about 70k here and that's without tax, that thing has practically everything in it i need, 190pk engine which means i can actually tow stuff forwards and up hills which i often require, as the load in the car was about ( 2000kg for the car itself + 1000kg it can load + 2500kg it can pull, as the trailer weights ~1000kg itself, i transport often about 1500-2000kg on it. Which is doable.
On top of it, it needs to have 5 chairs with 3 detachable, so i can transport people, and it has to have height to transport engines for trucks, but also shredder gear, and the length for metal pipes that i transport for trucks also. It needs to have full sized doors in the back that open sideways for forklifts, and it needs dark glass on the side and back for transport with people. It need costume made chairs as i transport sometimes directors from one place to another, and they want to see but not be seen. It needs detachable connectors at the bottom so i can place a wood protection plate on it and doesn't tear the bottom side of the car apart when people load and unload 500-1k weight in the fan + a lot of connectors to bolt stuff down on. It need to not have a second wall behind the driver seat because of lenght of stuff i transport but also because of people transport.
I can tell you this, u find absolute dick shit on the web, the 1-2 u find costs a massive amount of money, think about 550.000km on the clock, 12 years old, and energy level 4 ( 6 is needed for city's so can't go in city's ), still go for 33-40k and u can bet u will have to replace some parts after 550k on the counter pretty soon.
The trailer is destroyed, while the equipment didn't move much like 5 cm, it tore the plate up at the bottom as it digged into it and made it crack visible so can't support the 2100 weight limit anymore. The structural damage is also severe. Repair costs is 4k minimum, cost of a new one is 5kk. So in short pointless to replace.
On top of it, company is down the drain now. I spend months to get new clients to get my company rolling, i was going up 10% every month, so things where looking good. Next month i probably had everything under my name as things are finalized at this point, and i had multiple company's giving me more and more work along the line. I all had to can them now, because i can't serve them so all that work is gg overnight.
I asked a guy at a company that buys fans all day long, that i worked for at some point to check if he could find something for me and he basically said 30k+ second handed minimum, so no dice as i need my cash at this point to keep my house.
In short loyally fucked most likely. Which kinda triggered me to no end when that clown came forwards and said sorry, like drop 100k in my bank account and i accept your shitty as sorry statement and i will forget about u just tried to delete me a few minutes ago from this planet.
So yea, kinda winning the shit lottery.
Heftig hopelijk gaat alles goed
Yea had some metal in my arm, didn't realize until i showered, hurts like hell. They removed it, fixed now.
Ribs hurt a bit to be expected, and lots a nail on my toe lol. That little nail is a real pain in the ass i can tell you that.
Minor neck pain but that's about it.
Glad you're ok but I've never heard ghostrider in this context. What does it mean?
Ghost rider is basically, a guy that drives against the traffic, so he drives in the wrong direction on the road. This is extremely dangerous and deadly.
Now the thing is, if he guy was english i could understand it, as i often saw a English person take the wrong side of the road more then once but in general they don't take the highways the wrong directions, its just in a village or just outside of it. This guy was full blown dutch so there is no excuse really.
