Was that you? I sincerely hope not.....

Please have a look at this link as a MH is crashed after being driven at 80mph on the M6......


Hopefully it will show, I do not need to add anything.....


Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

No brake lights!.


Just watching a shifty looking geezer in the library searching intently through the 'S' section of the dictionary, he's stopped now.

I think he's up to something. . .. . . ray......

Stupid idiot

Glad he wasn't killed

But he could have killed other innocent people , but luck was on his side, or theirs

For what??

Where was he going that could possibally need that speed?

Not very clever, apart from driving too fast I would hazard a guess that he accelerated to try and pull himself out of trouble, not a good thing to do over 50mph.Or in that type of vehicle.


Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

If you read the article it says he refused to provide a specimin of blood for the police. Make of that what you will. I made "over the limit" out of it!

The driver had form: perhaps that is his reason for refusing to give a sample?

He's got form now - but not enough of it in my opinion.

This apparently went on for 35 miles with lots of other drivers phoning the police - it wasn't just one stupid, isolated event.

I was going to say, you dont get a three year ban and 12 months in jail just for driving too fast and smashing up your own vehicle. Pished by the sound of it and reported by lots of others.

Maybe he was on his way to a Fruitcakes meet.
