    Driveway removed, car in a hole - my fault? 4th Mar 17 at 9:23 PM
    Tonight I turned my car in someone's driveway. Their gates were set back from the road about 15ft, and closed. I just turned reversed in front of their gates hoping to turn around.

    But the driveway between the pavement and their gates had been dug out, so the back of my car fell into the hole (my partner then had to come in our 4x4 to pull me out). It was dark, raining and I just didn't notice the ground was 12" lower.

    The homeowner appeared and started angrily saying he had my reg and would come after me for any damage to his half-constructed driveway.

    But, here's the question - should he not have had some warning that the driveway was missing? Cones or signs or a rope or something?

    Interestingly the EXIF data was left on one of the photos he published. Nice phone the photo was taken from. Interesting location that can be obtained from the Lat/Long embedded in the data as well.

    Note to all - clear the metadata when publishing docs / photos etc.

    A bit early for popcorn. This thread hasn't yet reached kraken levels of length or entertainment, but it does share some similarities.
