    Next time I'm impersonating the Dukes of Hazzard, I won't be doing it in a Quashqai. Nul points.

    Luckily, they didn't have injuries. Hopefully, woman learned a lesson from this accident.

    Did you see the height they cleared?

    Probably had a second or two of weightlessness on the decent!
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Modern day cars are effectively lethal weapons - and I say this from my experience as a cyclist.

    In days gone by, most cars would struggle to reach 70 mph and you'd have wind it up some before you even got there.

    These days a blip of the throttle and you're 0-60 in a couple of seconds taking out a couple of cycles in the process..

    It's high time the bhp and top speeds of road vehicles was limited or perhaps some type of governor be fitted to all new vehicles.

    It can't be hard with the technology we have at our fingertips.

    My point is that I see people in high performance cars driving like lunatics every day.

    Going through red lights on roundabouts is the main one. They think just because the light has only just changed to red, there will be enough of a delay on the opposing set of lights for them to get through safely. There isn't and I've lost count of the number of near misses I've seen recently.

    We need more jam sandwiches on our roads; that'll make these beemer drivers think twice before running a red light.

    And your point is, cars and bikes can be just as bad as each other, IMO?

    A lot of bikes in London have no concept of red lights or crossings, I have nearly been hit and shouted at on a number of occasions.

    I've seen far more cyclists take chances at red lights than car drivers. If cyclists are brain-dead enough to think that they'll win in a collision, let them carry on taking those risks.
