A few days after I wrote that post about the rental van reversing along the pavement the same van was involved in an accident with another road user while parking for a pick-up. Fortunately no-one was hurt, just someones’ alloy-wheeled Opel was scratched and the police were called to check out the insurance claim. It took almost an hour.

Don’t two policemen have better things to do than be the arbiter of an insurance claim between two drivers?
