Hay guys just thought ide get your thoughts on the dreaded Gritters that i had the unfortunate experience to meet with this morning at 5:30 am on the motorway on the way to work... Now i have a pebble dashed windscreen and what was a almost chip free front end is now not soo chip free!! ARGHHHH! anyone els had the same experience ?
You can get a similar situation when they pass going in the opposite direction too, although the other day when one was coming towards me the driver did switch it off until we passed, which I thought was good of him, there wasnt much traffic on the road at the time though.
Best idea is buy a rubbish car for the winter and keep a nice one for the summer.
What with potholes and gritting lorries and the grit laid on roads it's a war against cars out there. I have had to replace a run flat due to a pothole and it damaged the alloy wheel but thankfully only slightly, the tyre fitter balanced it with only a slight counter weight. I had a V8 vantage and cringed every time I took it out due to the state of our roads.
