Thumbs down Pajero vs Bollard

Bollard won. Didn't see it hidden behind the A-piller

Ouch. I also hit a bollard but luckily it just smashed the rear passenger side rear tail light. $150 and good as new. Reckon yours might be a little more!

Ouch!

Easy enough to do.

I got real lucky with a company Commodore many years ago. Busy talking to my girlfriend, jumped in and started backing when I remembered there was a bollard back there somewhere. Jumped on the brakes and climbed out for a look.

The bollard was near the driver side rear wheel, and I couldn't see daylight between the bollard and the panel. I carefully drove forward, and couldn't see a mark on the panel.

I've marked my share of panels since then but never against a bollard.

Wife had all her friends in the car in an underground car park. Misjudged the concrete pillar and took out the nearside passenger door. Panicked, reversed back, took out the offside. It happens.
That was awhile ago now.

Bollards, underground car parks, posts, letter boxes, garage doors - I love 'em. Keep me in business.


The biggest mistake a lot of people make is when getting out of the situation. Instead of doing what they did, in reverse, they turn the wheel and make it worse, or, as noted above, panic.


All fixable though.


Interesting to see just how useless those alloy steps are in this kind of situation.

Was thinking the same thing. If one canít at the present time afford some sliders eg the Bushskinz ones, is there any advantage in taking the steps off when touring / off roaring? Or even greater risk to the sills undercarriage without them?
