So ‘another’ wonderful driver, stricken by a sudden ‘illness’. A lot of it about on the Island it would seem.

WHAT? Yet another brilliant driver, whose car has ‘suddenly’ malfunctioned, or, the driver struck with a instantaneous affliction.

Couldn’t possibly be ‘bad’ driving or drugs or alcohol.

Any driver found guilty of dangerous driving and putting people’s lives at risk should face a lifetime ban, because they have no respect for life.

Unbelievable the number of these so called drivers are not safe to be on the roads.
If caught & there is no doubt of guilt (driving dangerously they should be banned for life.
At this time no real deterrent in force.

It’s so annoying when you think you’ve purchased a Batmobil and your flying jets don’t kick in.

Assume no insurance then or that would have come up on a Police search.
