The staunchion was close to her car and making sure she did not hit other cars on the forecourt area, drove carefully out and ,not having the offending staunchion there when she drove in , have it suddenly appear on the way out!
On this day, my Daughter has approached the Manager of the dealership and it transpires that the newly purchased vehicle should have been driven off the forecourt by a staff member , a common ruling by the majority of car dealerships apparently,and one not conveyed to my Daughter. This ruling was not observed by the staff,they were obviously quite happy to ignore it. The damage to her newly aquired vehicle will be paid for as they accept full responsibility. You quote in your reply to my problem ''come what may,she was driving and it was for her to avoid hazards,there is no way round it '' unquote.!
