Is this the only comment you know how to write? I suppose you were present at all these accidents and know exactly who was at fault.

No doubt he’s a top advanced driver, who has never made an error of judgement behind the wheel of a car in his life.

The idiots who give you thumbs down obviously think the outrageous accident count and reckless driving is acceptable.

Your comment is a stuck record, you give your opinion time after time regardless of the cause of the incident.
It is not funny and about time you realised it’s not appreciated.

Move on and grow up. Off you go bye bye.

It’s still should not happen if you drive according to the high way code every day there’s accidents caused by bad driving it’s got to stop use your mirrors and indicate where your going helps. it’s not rocket science is it and give a shi- about other people

There is plenty of bad driving on the Island, there is no doubt of that, however one comment does NOT cover the whole story. A little bit of intelligent thought and understanding would have a bigger impact than a simple one line comment that is used to cover all eventualities.

How the bloody hell can an accident occur here, the movement of vehicles is controlled by traffic lights!
Just imagine what the island’s roads will be like if P Feather, 904 homes get the go ahead by the Planners! We think it’s bad now, so many more vehicles on our roads, it will be the point of no return. Carnage and constant traffic jams, increased pollution from exhausts when the world agreed pollution had carbon emissions must be reduced.

On that premise, should we stop tourism? Or tourists with cars? Over 750,000 visitors, a lot in vehicles, spent over £95 million here in 2019. Your argument, whilst laudable, is somewhat parochial.
