Why was this speed Demon allowed to still have a Drivers license?
Soros, Gascon and Texas independence. Its a long story of right wing and left wing loopholes aligning in the Swiss cheese.

Did the driver think that it was a drive thru?

14 injured when car crashes into pub.

So much for a quiet Friday night drink.

I have driven this exit / ramp and can tell you that if you are going too fast you might loose control & end up like this man...
Driver critically hurt when car falls off Fort Worth highway bridge at Texas 183 and 360
The driver, who was the only person in the car, was involved in an accident that caused the vehicle to strike a guardrail with sufficient force to vault over the guardrail and fall about 50 feet to the ground below, police said in a news release.

Over the years have heard some really dumb ideas & policies in the transport industry.
However the latest government idea leaves me speechless.
Cyclists to have number plates, insurance with one minister saying they should have speed limiters.

They're going to need a lot more police-people...

For the new Ludicrous Speed electric bicycles, and "motor assisted" bicycles, carelessly raced along shared pedestrian areas, where those things then silently go speeding up behind an unprotected unsuspecting pedestrian...

A 20mph hard speed limiter is very much needed!!...


Stay safe folks!

2 planes try to land together, but sadly it didn't come off well. :-(

A passenger bus collided with emergency teams handling an earlier road accident in southern Turkey, leaving at least 16 people dead and nearly two dozen injured, officials say.


Turkey has a poor record of road safety. Some 5,362 people were killed in traffic accidents last year, according to the government.

Did she think that she was on her gopher?

A woman drove her SUV 60 yards through the second floor of a Boston-area mall.

But you have to wonder how a vehicle could get access so easily. Isn't there bollards there to stop that sort of thing from happening?

Cheers.

The BBC report on that accident says there was a second one hours later that also killed 16 people.

Apparently it had been removed following a previous accident.
