Well that was a complete waste of time

My Mercedes-Benz was written off on 29 July 2004 by a Bantam bakkie (that's a light delivery vehicle or "pick-up" for non-South Africans), that failed to check the main road for traffic whilst crossing the intersection from a stop street. I was not even travelling 50km per hour. I'm fine, although whiplash is taking a slight toll on my flexibility. I'm getting tired of the lawlessness on the roads - see my comments about this here and here.
