"Conditions were perfect for a GPS Drawing like this - driving in the rain with worn tyres, fresh tarmac (more slippery), and of course a blind bend. The GPS receiver sat neatly in its dashboard mount as I approached a small crest in the road revealing a sharp bend a few yards ahead.
I slammed on the breaks initiating a graceful 20mph skid towards the ditch on the outside corner of the turn. The rear end of the car swung out to deposit the car passenger-side-down in the ditch. A protruding branch shattered the rear passenger-side window. The GPS remained neatly in its dashboard mount, it read 0.0mph. I was not injured and the car was a write off." A. Garfitt
