Have any of you idiots considered driving safely and/or properly? Do you have a licence? maybe you need more lessons? The amount of accidents lately is terrible and you cant blame weather conditions just your disgraceful behaviour on the road

They were obviously looking, just not in the right place!

As long as no one is seriously hurt who cares, you're only a few minutes late for work. Life goes on...

Wonder how many of the three vehicles had to be ripped asunder by the ol' hydraulic "jaws of life" this time out?

At the risk of a self-induced dose of the collywobbles I must confess to somewhat agreeing with Buhudeeka’s sentiments - well at least within the context of her latest pronouncement regarding local driving standards.

Having last Sunday ventured away from the sheltered cloisters of Planet Zog in order to visit ‘The Old Home Town’ , I found that within only just twenty minutes of entering the urban area I had lost count of the number of completely selfish arrogant morons I encountered driving in a reckless manner - presumably for no reason one other than pandering to their own self-opinionated infantile ego.

Just what can it be that inspires the half-baked semi-pubescent motorised youth of Country Bumpkin Land to take on the mantle of a Mid Essex version of the Dukes of Hazard?

Maybe there’s something in the water? I can think of no other logical explanation.

There is an old Freudian and Jung saying OMPITA or what one would call a momentary subconscious thought. There is no proof, that those of us in the masses, are the norm of the human make up and psyche, on the contrary those with alternate mental health contraindications could be the natural methodology and state, of how the human should be". There is also another theory by some esotericists that at night when the body is asleep is the natural way or form of human life where the brain controls the flow of human evolution during its REM and nocturnal pattern movement, during the day when energy is expended is the natural state of the body.
Now enough of the science lesson and back to the nitty gritty. Monday morning straight after the school holidays junction 26 side road T Junction black spot to sainsburys off the A12, and guess what 2 people carriers bang smack wallop when into the back of the other and hey presto two women. (Oh well holiday deposits all paid for, whiplash injury applications in process via lawyers 4 u):
If this carries on it will get to the point where the grey suits will do something about it.
But of course the DSA now only dish out licence passes to who they see fit as their own ie. Pretty little rich daddies girls or spotty faced white only teenagers, with British names or anglo saxon ethnicity. And by the way Colchester is keeping up its record as one of the worst Test Centres in the country. Along with the hospital and the council I see we are keeping up the good old pecker up.

One of my vans was involved in this and it was caused because of someone wanting to undertake the vehicle in front of them. They didn't look in there mirror and went into the side of our vehicle then into the back of the car they were trying to undertake. Fortunately all injuries were minor. This would not have happened if someone had not been so impatient and had used there mirrors.
