Car Insurance claims from around the world

Courtesy Top Gear Magazine.

In Tipperary one driver made claims on Dec 20 for a record eight years in a row. Explanations included, 'a duck', 'miscounted corners', 'another duck', 'a young lady who without braking I was attempting to photograph (see enclosed)'.

'Being told my mother-in-law would be staying another night caused me to brake violently.'
'I pulled away from the side of the road, glanced at my mother-in-law and headed over the embankment.'
One man claimed half a biro, which he'd used to take notes after an accident. The payout? A meagre 18p.

A Dusseldorf man said 10 prostitutes set upon his car with fists and stilettos but could not say why.

Australia (the best ones):
'A Koala bear had entered the car and taken the brake off.'
'A bogong moth plague swooped down on the Mitsy (Mitsubishi) so I was doing figure of eights'.
'A pygmy possum in the glovebox caused my wife to scream and the noise gave me a stroke.'
'We gave a fairy penguin a lift and it became aggressive.'
'I was driving along when I saw two kangaroos copulating in the road, causing me to crash. I then evacuated through the sunroof.'
