Too many accidents lately these drivers need a retest before they injure someone.

Seems the drink and drug purge needs to be full time on this Island infested with such selfish beings. Many growing and dealing from cheap Beemers.

Maybe not in this case, by my car had managed to ‘stick’ on the road for the last decade with issues.

Why don’t you stand to the side of the accidents wagging your fingers.


more police patrols needed to check cars many driving under the influence of drugs and drink,but the canabis users seem to get ‘let off’ they are just as much a hazard as a drink driver
