Nope.

Odile asked in the support thread some time ago for blobs and the corresponding text to be removed, the answer was that it's impossible (for the mods).

Re: Crashed the car and of top I get a fine?? Please help

I have posted once or twice in defense of people on this site when I have perceived its going to far.

But there also has to be a fair balance the other way.

We are now 7 pages in and after an overall view tackled in many different ways that there could be something to learn here he doesnt give a fudge.

I guess money can always be had but common sense you have or you don't.

LOL. 260k? That's just my base salary. You mistake avarice for contempt.

Assume you mean monthly.

Still barely a living wage.

The accident wasn't with me but with my wife, she was driving at 23h in a deserted highway to pick me up at the hospital where I was recovering from surgery.
You don't get released from a swiss hospital in the middle of the night after surgery, unless you demanded so. But no one in their right mind would do this in the middle of the night. I don't believe that part even for a single second.

When you hear that your spouse has crashed the car worth almost $200k and got fine on the top of that, then, oh Lord give me strength, you disconnect the drip and run to save the whole situation.

Hi dear friends of the forum,

Last Monday I crashed my car because the highway had like a very thin layer of ice. De car started rotating, crashed and now it's fully damaged and it's a scap.

I have heard that the canton/police will give me not only a fine but also that I will lose my driving license for a month. Is this true?

I mean I almost died, have no car anymore and now I must pay because the road had ice?? I was wasn't speeding, wasn't drunk, and a 186k car with all its technology couldn't do anything to stop because the road had ice and now I even have to pay for it??!! Come on seriously?!

Please help me with your experience and advice.

Thank you

If you drive a 186K car, you can afford the piddling fine. Stop moaning about a very small amount of money, pay the fine like everyone else has to, and move on with life. If you cant handle a 186K car on a little ice, i would suggest you invest in a cheaper car you can handle on ice, considering it snows a lot in this country.

Perhaps you would, perhaps not, after all she wasn't hurt. However that's not the situation at hand anyway.

Re: Crashed the car and of top I get a fine?? Please help

Again, your post reminds me very much of a past partner (with limited driving skills - and I wasn't a passenger at that time) driving a high powered car in CH, who I would never agree to drive with as a passenger again.

The driver survived, the driver of the car (my ex-partner at that time) in its incoming overtaking / badly driving path on the Hirzel didn't (young). The other 4 young passengers didn't do too well either.

The oncoming driver survived emotionally, being used to death as a well-known pathologist.

Unfortunately, in Texas recently my nephew additionally had a heart attack at the wheel (apparently) and killed a family in the on-going traffic.

This thread quite frankly makes me feel sick.
