for some people it can be a very harrowing adventure.
Take, for example, the adventure that befell American racing car
legend Slick Mills. Slick had only one minor accident in his 25
year racing career. However, while he was in Montreal on
holiday, He got into a serious wreck that nearly ruined him
However, he was able to escape financial ruin because he took
out a short term motor insurance policy (he
thought carinsurancefor1day.co.uk was too expensive) prior to his departure in
his hometown of Lenends, Utah. This policy allowed him to pay
for the damage that was the result of a bizarre incident that to
this day leaves him dumbfounded.
It happened while Slick was driving about on holiday along
Montreal's Avenue Du Parc one September morning. Slick was
driving his auto back to his hotel when a cat suddenly darted
out on to the street to avoid people who were throwing rocks at
The cat was running so fast across the street that Slick Mills
had little time to react. Thankfully, Slick's training as a race
car driver allowed him to turn his vehicle quickly away from the

cat that he ended up crashing his auto into a light pole.

report the incident. It came in handy because it allowed his

was able to use Slick's short-term causality and property damage
cover to pay for the light pole and the vehicle in a jiffy.

vehicle to the scrapyard. This helped him avoid serious
financial ruin because it turned a large liability into a small
expense that was easily payable.
As a result, He still had the time and resources to
enjoy his holiday in style.
Slick returned to his home in Lenends ten days after the
accident after a fun holiday exploring Montreal. He took the cat
home with him and named him Timmy.
The duo now spends their days puttering round Lenends in a blue
Mitsubishi saloon. Maybe you will see them someday if you drive
