Nose to tail prangs - most common prang type, AAMI

    As Cheffie was famous for saying, a small nose to tail between two cars ends up with one of them inflating a surprise party balloon and the drivers have a bit of a disruption to their day as they exchange details.

    Swap one of those vehicles for a motorcycle and it could be a serious life disruption for the rider.

    If drivers fail to manage whole cars/vehicles clearly in their forward view, then let this knowledge remove any doubt about one of the key reasons that filtering makes riding safer.




    Ride safe.

  2. with the increase in distraction inside the cabin I'm rather surprised that this percentage hasn't gone up. Unless of course AAMI are only insuring us middle aged luddites and the plugged in generation are with other insurers or are uninsured
