There is this another stupid Uber driver who was in the middle of M4 lane towards T1 T2 T3, just by by corner of M25.

He jumped onto my lane as he clearly aimed for joining M25 but I was too close to him and I hit him. My car left side bonnet and headlight got smashed onto his driver side door and passenger side door.

Maybe some of you might have seen us there around 19:45 today.

There was a lady driver in front of us and a male driver behind us both stopped and came for help, they saw everything and told me to not worry about anything we saw it was the other driver’s fault as they gave me their details for witnessing.

The other driver was aggressive in his approach and he tried to say he was just staying on M4 right hand lane for no reason as he tried to blame me for hitting him. I found that so disrespectful and the lady driver in front of us got annoyed and put him on his place by telling him that you made a mistake and now you trying to blame him (me).


I added few pics here to show how and where it happened for you to understand nd help me who’s fault it was as the other driver wasn’t admitting his fault. A big THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR HELPING

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.

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.

Wonderful you did a great job by finding this google map pic! It made it easier for me now to explain. You see where M4 East is written on the middle lane, he was right on the “4” sign on the middle lane when he decided to jump into the right lane and try to jump over to M25.

Thats where exactly we collided and the unfortunate thing happened.

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
Thank you for your reply! I went to my solicitor and indeed I was told it’s not my fault because he was the one who changed lane towards right that’s enough for liability

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.
No offence your Uber rating doesn’t mean FA to anyone or anything

Rule of the rd when u see Addlee you show respect and drive slowly and let the driver do what he has to do
I used to go mad when I see add lee trying to jump used to stick to the car ahead and never give way nothing will change it will just spoils his day and that's the bit I like

Try remember the car does not belong to the Addlee driver and it will take the time it takes the recovery to drop the Addlee car to Hayes for that driver to be back on Rd , where as if ur car gets damage ul be off the rd for a bit and even if u get compo u will still make a loss .
