Another car has flipped in a matter of days. I hope the driver and any passengers are okay but this only proves the island is a magnet for this stuff

Hardly a new fashion, more like an age old tradition.

All these accidents. People need to slow down and/or learn how to drive safely. Whacky Racers comes to mind.

I was coming from Forest road onto the new junction and the driver of a car in the right hand lane decided they wanted to go onto the industrial estate as we’re moving and veered across the road cutting up the left hand lane traffic, then once in the slip road for B&q etc didn’t look right and carried on into the traffic coming down from the junction causing cars to take evasive action, HW plate, could’ve been a hire car but still no excuse for bad driving.

Has the same happen to us yesterday., nearly took front end of our car off straight out from forest road lights next to us and sped off and crossed over both lanes and avoiding cars queue at lights going down duel. Accident chaos waiting that is. Should’ve made the left Lane Cowes and industrial only and right hand or duel to split once past the lights for left and right duel lanes.

The trouble is that these Bad Drivers don’t give a damn what the speed limit is, they just do what they like. I’d like to know when the Highways Police are going to start taking this problem seriously & do something about the ridiculous driving on the Calbourne/Middle road?!!!
