Driving to fast again and not reading the road comes to mind here.

Typical of the Island ‘drivers’ nowadays White Top. In ‘my day’ we would hammer them until they saw sense.

So the car had a mind of its own then, just decided to crash into a tree and no one was actually driving it..

Or was it one of those driverless cars we keep hearing about…

So what your saying is that with all the vehicles that passed that same spot, including myself, and avoided an RTC after reading the road and its conditions you had to be the one to take evasive action to avoid it and end up in the trees,thankfully nothong was travelling in the opposite direction at the time as the outcome could have been a lot worse.

Keyboard warriors no, this obviously hits home to you.
Dealing with these idiots day in day out you are an accident waiting to happen, slow down, read the road and drive as to the way you were taught when passing your test will hopefully save your life as well as other road users.

Was it a diesel? There is one driving about in Ryde late evening / night. Looks like it’s doing drug deliveries. Seen at more than one property that stink of weed. Accelerates hard because driver wants to here the turbo go woosh.
