Full disclosure here, I can't see how it wasn't my mistake so it seems right to own up to it. Luckily, no harm done to anything other than my own property and for that I'm equal parts lucky, grateful, and sorry.
It happens. A mate from my canoeing days had to collect a roof rack carrying 4 kayaks from the middle lane of a motorway after it came flying off. It was a Paddy Hobkirks rack which everyone else knew was totally unsafe.
They had a rep for flying off car roofs among canoeists so most avoided them and halfords own brand racks which were made by paddy hobkirks back then.
