  • What a joke. ADAC or the OAMTC would have had your thingies for doorbells and rung them every morning if you called them out for something as trivial as this. If she was in Germany, this would have been a road trip. For the cost it sends to put one of these into the air, you could have ordered 5 road ambulances, since it's nearly £1000 alone per trip for the fuel. What a waste.
