In the freezing fog this morning, I was not surprised that the ESP system flickered into life a couple of times on the way in, especially when it happened in places I'd expect to ice up. But the last mile or so to work, the ride became very lumpy if I tried to go much above 30, and when I parked…

Rear passenger-side tyre flat.

At least the Mercedes garage could fit me in, so it was just a case to trying to get through to National Breakdown (who were having a computer systems malfunction) and waiting for the two to turn up.

A nuisance, but if it's no more than every other year, it's more than made up for by the rest of the generally economic running that I get out of the Smart.
