Audi driver stripped of car for ‘wantonly courteous driving’
A glazier from Colchester has had his 2012 Audi A4 repossessed by the Company. Nick Bain (52) was told that his ownership was ‘revoked’ by the company after failing to adhere to ‘basic guidelines regarding aggressive and discourteous driving.’
In a statement Audi stated that they take their reputation very seriously and although they could not discuss the case in detail they agreed that action had been taken against owners for offences such as leaving adequate stopping distance, flashing people out on slip roads and using near side lanes on dual carriageways.
Defending their right to revoke Audi ownership, a spokesman explained ‘It’s all there in our handbook: ‘Eats, Shoots Off and Carves Up.’ Mr Bain knew the score when he signed the contract: if you can see the registration of the car in front you’re not close enough. If he loves other drivers so much he may as well go the whole hog and hitch hike.’
Mr Bain was unavailable for comment, as, according to his wife, he was stuck behind a tractor and trailer in his new Clio.
