    It's just as the title says. The woman was taking her test, it was pissing it down like it does here in Jolly Ol' England, she splashed someone and kept going.

    Apparently it counts as an accident :rolleyes:

    BUT:
    Without due care would be running them over!

    That sounds pretty stupid. I recon splashing pedestrians is funny.

    Oh you gotta be kidding me. She failed for that! Man that is harsh..

    So does it count as a hit and run? 1 count of drive by splashing. :lol:

    I'm not sure if it still applies to British law but I'm fairly certain divers who purposefully soaked pedestrians by driving through puddles could be find in addition of £100.

    How can they prove that? You can have a situation where the driver intended to do it, but when the cop pulls him over all he has to say is "It was an accident."

    Actually that's a law here too. If you maliciously go through water just to splash a pedestrian you can get fined from the cops. The person just needs to get the license number of the vehicle and call it in, time of day, where, etc.

    hehe this made me laugh!

    I can't believe someone would be failed for this! I could understand a law against it if it was done on purpose (although very hard to prove), but to fail someone in a driving test for it! That's a bit extreme, the instructor must've been having a bad day!

    Most instructors are right grumpy twats, they really hate their job.

    What's an L-Driver? Licensed? Lousy? Lazy? Liceinfected?

    And I can't tell you how many times I would have failed that for that exact reason. Spraying pedestrians is both fun and hilarious.
