Hope they are ok.

Sad to say it, but this is very common on the isle.

Would be good to know whether these accidents occur from manuals or automatic cars. My guess is the latter.

Agreed, make everyone drive manual and only up to 2nd gear.

Totally disagree David. I f their old school with a licence to to drive both a manual and automatic sometimes the individual goes back to manual mode pushing the gear stick forward into reverse thinking they are putting it in first gear then acceleorating forward, have dealt with many that have done this in the past. Thankfully nobody was walking by at the time as yes that could have ended in a tragedy similar to that at Yaverland many years ago for those that remember.

Superb driving!! Excellent space saving parallel parking. Not a bush squashed, for sale sign and lamppost intact. And even managed not to upset island rds with the drop kerb problem by using another car as a leapfrog. It’s amazing what a miscalculation can achieve ….

To be fair a lot of drivers on the I.O.W don’t know their left from their right.
I think it is lucky that a lot of I.OW drivers don’t go on the mainland there would be carnage.

Retest every 10 years. Currently no one is responsible for stopping you driving when you are no longer able to. Don’t have to be old to have your ability to drive safe from illness.

Imagine if this had happened outside a school when the children were leaving.
They should be jailed for dangerous driving as a lesson to other careless bad drivers.
