:headscratch: wasn't there another crash in the same place a few weeks ago? Are they spotting you polishing the engine bay of your double decker and crashing out of shock?!

Ouch!
I wonder what speed the driver was going when the lamp post jumped out in front him? That's what happened, officer. Honestly! :whistle:

Guys sadly I see this sort of thing very often nowadays. Andy it was not even a big lamp post. Totally wrecked it though. As Andrew said surely speed played a massive part in this and just as Tom said couple of weeks ago there was a car on its bleedin roof about 10metres from where this Nissan is. Hate working night shifts for the sheer fools that are racing around. Usually it's he BMW guys who are racing each other in and out of traffic and lanes!!!!!! . And the Skyline drivers are very sensible compared to BMW drivers in my area even though they would slaughter a BMW in a race if its like my mates Skyline running on nearly 1000bhp!!!!.

Not saying all BMW drivers are scoundrels but they are Tottenham :lol:

Sad to say Nick but the standard of driving nowadays by many is crap!

I find driving a chore where as I used to enjoy it. Early Sunday morning in the Capri is the only time I really enjoy a drive now!

Basic driving skills and common sense appear to have gone, and no one seems to have a thought for anyone else on the road :roll:

:agree: :agree: :agree: :agree:
I feel exactly the same, no longer enjoy driving day to day.
(Although up here the BMWs seem to have quietened down somewhat, it`s Audis that seem to be the preferred steed of the phallically challenged.)

Nick, we have bus lanes in the city centre which have automatic bollards: bus has a transmitter, bus approaches bollard sinks, bus passes bollard rises. The number of times I `ve seen people try to slipstream a bus - only for the bollard to punch through the bottom of their car, well , it`s a joy to watch, it really is!!

I saw an X3 with the front end destroyed and a front strut ripped out this morning.... In a 20 zone.... It had hit a steel railing separating the road and pavement, if that hadn’t been there it would have be parked in Costa Coffee! I just looked at it and thought ‘how’?!?!

Bleedin Hell. That really is a game of russian roulette and just plain ridiculous and serves them right Steve. Would love to see this though. Must try You Tube :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks mate!! That first one is priceless Steve. Tries to get through with obviously no success then tries to be smart by reversing and waitng for a bus. Brilliant.!!!! Love it!! At this point I presume the driver realised that bus stations are meant for buses only :lol: :lol: :lol:

That Toyota starlet at 0.33 could blatently have squeezed through that starlet-sized gap to their left if they really wanted to run the barriers. wtf wrong with these morons.

That is horrific. I hope the driver was OK after that.
