Wow this new Isle of Wight Stunt Driving School is getting really popular in recent months!
Hope no one was seriously hurt though.

I find it strange that so many accidents in the last few months.
A high percentage I believe is drivers abilities or lack of them.

Could most of the accidents be because recent road surfacing doesn’t take the tarmac to the proper edge of the road leaving a nice big trough to drive into. The worse one I’ve seen is by the steam railway just past the entrance going out of Havenstreet. Vehicles coming round that bend push you towards the trough… Very little room if they’re a biggun

That is quite possible, On some roads they have filled the troughs with gravel, perhaps as a result of complaints. Another strong possibility is that too many people are fiddling with their phones.
