Thursday on ITV's Car Crash Britain has now been pushed out to August apparently due to the London Bridge bombing...

In the actual collision footage there was a lot of yellow on Funkie's Tmax. But in the reconstruction scene (@16:51) of Funky 'heading to work' his scoot had changed colour to black and red with some "Asian" writing that some may misinterpret. :|

Well... between the incident which caused £300 worth of damage (Paid for by the old lady) I rewrapped the scoot in matt black.

We were both paid for our interview time and I gave her, although legally did not have to, half the money that I received for the footage which more than paid for the loss caused by the damage. I think this is in part why she is glad it was me that hit her.

Old look in avatar used in incident

New look below, although I have gone off it... so it will under go another change.

Oh and the asian writing is Japanese Kanji for 'Mountain Leaf' or Yamaha, the yellow version had the same text but with an upside down Yamaha tuning fork logo behind it.

Kin Ell Funky, you don't need to justify yourself to us bud, we know beyond any doubt that you are one of the good guys

Well done on the glancing blow swerve bud, many would have 'frozen' & had a 'full-on' hit

I haven't actually seen what they put on yet as I don't have a TV so don't pay the license fee and therefore can't watch iPlayer, I'll be watching it at my parents at the weekend.

So I am curious, a co-worker said on the show I was doing 35mph... I am 100% sure I said 30 mph to them and it can be seen on my dash, can any one please confirm what speed they said I was doing? (Its a 40mph road)

Ere yer go bud, I did a screen grab, hopefully you can see your speedo here (I don't know how to zoom in, sorry) what can clearly be seen is that her view of you is completely obscured by the position of her umbrella ...
