Hold my breath Going across that junction. The speed that some drivers come over that hill from the Apse Heath side beggars believe. In fact that road from Morrisons through to Arreton has a fair number of Crashes a few being fatal. Slow down guys is better to be a bit late than not get there at all

Just swung by to see if another Island car was on its roof tonight. Just a routine collision then, another one. Well goodnight all.

Well at least nobody is seriously hurt. Certainly not the ideal way to start the weekend.

If you have nothing sensible to say, why not say nothing and give us all a break?

As much as I dislike traffic lights, especially the fiascos that are St. Mary’s and Downend, this junction desperately needs traffic sensored lights. Until then there will continue to be accidents, some of them potentially could be fatal.

Don’t blame the road blame the drivers. All junctions are supposed to be used with caution.
