It counts as driver's fault because of lack of bouncy boy insurance, as you
suggest, Max. But if they up the insurace rate next year, I'll be swapping
companies. We slowed, the roo was stationary, waited till the car drew level
and he simply jumped suicidally in front of the still moving car. Nothing we
could have done.
