    I never said it was your fault.

    It's what we see happening 10x a day, people working on a driving job when they shouldn't even be allowed to be driving.

    One of the first things my driving instructor said to me was, "you will make mistakes, miss your turn, the best way to stay safe is to keep your speed and take the next exit". - this guy, if things happened as you described, had no clue where to go, changed lanes and slowed down to think about it.

    I tried to explain as I could and added photos for a reason to understand if my my description doesn’t make sense however some people just ignore those photos and focuses to educate me about why I should give a way to someone who decides last second to cross me over to try and join M25


    I have been with Uber over 1.5 years now and my rating is 4.98 I drive as safe and as aware as it should be but things happen on the road we can’t control.

    If it was my mistake I would have accepted but the irony is this driver was so disrespectful and he was trying to leave the scene as soon as he can not asking if anyone was injured or not. His passenger booked another Uber and left without interaction. My passengers along with 2 other witnesses stood till the end.

    Again I never said it was your fault, but you are trying very hard to justify your experience and Uber rating, you do realize that your rating means nothing.

    Accidents happen and it's part of being on the road working.

    Most riders do not care for anyone else, that's why they left too, but that driver that accepted the motorway pickup, what does it say about him, safety wise..

    Hello mate. When I'm not working I let anyone in but when working its different. Us cabbies do let each other out.. Part of cabbie etiquette. When you've got a punter in and you've already let two cabs in matey in the back isn't gonna be too happy letting everyone else in. Also when you've had hours of prius' realising they are in the wrong lane wanting to turn left, it gets a bit tedious.

    A real bug bare of mine is when I'm going from park lane to Edgware Rd. Almost every single time a pH (not always pH but mostly) to my right will realise he needs to get in my lane to turn left for bays water Rd. I just cannot understand why anyone following a satnav would be in the 3rd lane!

    Hire and reward insurance does not cover us to pick up from motorways

    Listen, there is NO M4 after T5 slip.

    T5 slip is taking you on to M25 with 6 lanes.

    Driving down M25 3 lanes on the left are IN DIRECTION of M4 creating M25 slip to M4west and M4east.

    So all he could have done is undercut you from your left side.

    270A4789-4AC6-4ADF-A700-DF1B4D3AA6F3.jpeg

    M4 WEST and M4 EAST in not name of motorway.

    These are just directional markings on M25 telling where to go.


    You misunderstood degree thing.
    I mastered LHR as it was my home for 5-6 yrs doing just transfers.

    Mate no disrespect, but you are confused there is no such thing as coming from T5 and you are on m4 no you are not on m4, you are in m25 slip road with m4.

    If you gave such explanations to your insurance I’m sure not only will it complicate things but it will end in a draw 50-50 since you don’t have a camera to prove what had actually happened .


    The best thing for you to say will be m25 slip road with m4 east driver decides to rejoin m25 from the left hand lane while I’m on the right hand lane and cut right infront of me while doing 65mph and gave me no chance to brake. End of the story.

    Sorry to hear about your accident, first thing is relevant of who's fault no one was injured and being on motorway that's a saving grace. Second wasn't your fault so at least that's something you don't have to worry about and furthermore you have witnesses

    Hi, accidents are obviously not nice but it happens, we live in london where no one wants to give some one away or even let them pass a very difficult junction, most importantly think ahead and always observe the car in front and what's happening beside you. Like others say most people make last judgement when they dnt understand what's happening on the map. I have notice this specially on the A406 going onto M11, you notice the GPS confuse some people and you notice a sudden turn in.

    I think white prius at fault. Insurance claims dislike frontal impact. Whoever has frontal impact regardless of actions of second driver will always go against him. White prius should have been on full alert of the actions of stupid drivers ahead of him.

    Sorry mate 70% own fault. I hope I am wrong

    Good thing your not the assessor.

    Those road markings are not advisory and there for a purpose, you cross and crash pay the price.

    Black prius at fault basic SMM
