hi folks,
why don't twin-wheeled vehicles have to be fitted with gaurds behind the rear wheels?.

just had a twin-wheeled tranny-van hurl a slightly larger than fist-sized cobble at me and the missus,it smashed w/screen-but luckily didn't come through!. scared the carp out of the pair of us,by the time i'd calmed said missus down,and taped screen up, said tranny had vanished off face of the earth.
luckily, it was my friends car (D-reg carlton)we were using,and he was quite chuffed, he got a new screen and i paid him the £50 quid that his insurance would cost.
meanwhile, we had to trudge around town for an extra 41/2 hours while it was being fixed, (apparently it had to be glued?-in)and i got soaked,while missus was buying new dress.(said it was best cure for trauma!)

I've had the same thing happen from a twin wheeled truck, though in my case it just smashed a headlamp.

I have however had the windscreen of a previous car hit by a large bolt, whilst driving on the M4 with no other traffic around in any direction. It didn't break the glass, though did leave distinct 'helical thread' chips in it!

Checked the news that night for aircraft crashes, but none had happened!
