      I’m sure it was the cars fault. Won’t happen again. Not with that car. That should teash the car.

    • Family Man says:

      I’m sure you’ll be able to get it pretty cheaply right about now.

    He won’t be banned from driving unless he’s found to be under the influence…!! No mention that he was breathalyzed. So he’ll probably claim on his insurance and start looking for a new ride..!!

    What’s the red stuff on the car? Hope its prickly pear juice, and not blood! Seriously though, driver had to be speeding and/or drinking! Looks like at least a fine for “due care”!

    When is Government going to do something about all these dangerous embankments? They, along with walls, are causing way too many accidents like this. If all walls and embankments were removed, this type of accident would cease immediately.

    But I don’t expect Government will do anything about it as usual.

    • trees says:

      If they got rid of the walls and embankments and just put 40ft sheer drops then gradually but surely driving standards would improve.

      Basically drivers would drive within their ability to avoid certain death, those who don’t would just eliminate themselves from the gene pool and increase the average driving standard.

    • Necromonger says:

      It’s not embankments or walls causing accidents… It’s reckless and distracted drivers that cause accidents. Not to mention impaired driving..!!

      When will you start to encourage people to take responsibility for their actions..?? Stop insisting that the Government do something, when you should be insisting that drivers be more responsible behind the wheel or at the handlebars…

      Nuff Said.

    Headline should be “Car is driven over embankment.”
