I went out to the car yesterday arvo to get the small socket set I left in it from the day before, & found the back side window completely shattered. The only thing holding it together is the tinting.
The council blokes who housing commission get to mow our front yards were here a couple of hours earlier, & I know exactly how this happened. The stupid idiot who does the whipper snippering has showered the side of the car with the small (up to 5mm dia.) quartz stones that are all through the dirt in our front yards. All the little stones that flew & hit the car are laying on the concrete next to it. Anyone with half a brain cell would operate the machine so any debris would fly AWAY from the residents vehicle, but not this moron. I phoned housing & was told to write a letter to them so they can contact the council for compensation.

Lets hope they replace the glass, give your car a full detail/buff and if the scratches dont come out the whole area gets a respray. Let us know how it goes.

Make sure you take some good pix of the stones and stuff you were talking about. I'd be ringing the council directly too. Oooooh some heads would be rolling big time if that happened to me. :ranting:

Good luck with it mate :thumbsup:

Yeah davey, I took good photos of the stones on the ground next to the car etc.

Got a quote to send in to housing for the window this morning from Corowa Windscreens.
Housing are going to sort out the council for me so I get compensated for the damage. :thumbsup:

Total cost including GST to replace the window & tint comes to $412.28.

Oh that's intellegent. Dig up the whole front yard metres deep to get rid of the stones. I live in a gold bearing area and the quartz stones are all the way through the ground like I said.

Why should I when he can whipper snipper the other way, away from the car.
