    The accident happened about 3am. Those with the ankle bracelet ... have to be home a lot sooner than that ...



    Maybe they were just trying to beat the traffic lights ... obvious fail ...

    I know of three separate FATAL accidents that involved friends of mine while on a ride ... all of which they would not have seen the vehicle that killed them until the last second. One of which I was 100 meters behind him. At 130 km/hr. ALL the (now) deceased said the same thing.

    I wish you good luck in the future in that regard ...

    So ... if you (or anybody) is involved in an accident ... they will be one of the lowest common denominators ... right ... ??

    That will be the major flaw in your plan/statement. Because ... the "When and Where" is not your choice to make. And you wouldn't know what a substandard driver looks like. And when you find out ... it might be to late to do anything.

    People die on good roads in perfect driving conditions. Feeling safe enough to increase their speed (Just like you do).

    I hope you're feeling lucky ...

    Then explain why a few on here laughed at the journalist ... that made the comment that the crash highlighted the "Speed kills" ... ??



    Apparently it was just a hoon getting it wrong.

    Hitting a traffic light? In a Hilux?

    After what Top Gear put their Hilux through, I'm really quite impresseed how these fucktards managed to ahieve this level of vehicular destruction from a fucking traffic light.


    Nice work Mr Darwin!
