Do you think before you post?

Fuck me, there are some short sighted comments on here.

IIRC the road is a twisty one (very) but a well used one, there was mention of a fox, and he says the rear breaks locked up, sending him into a spin, and then a roll, and so on.

Apparently police have taken his word for what has happened, and there is talk of claiming against vaux as there is a possibility of failed rear brakes (locked on & stayed locked).

Now, i'm not saying this is true, but this is what he claims, i am partial to beleiving him though, as i have seen a few animals jumping out along that road.

Also, seats will be funked, they have airbags in them, no?


Sueing Vauxhall? Oh please.

maybe there should be a CC limit on car licences, like there is with bike licences. Like say 1400cc until 20 or summing. That way, the stupid youngsters wont be able to drive anything mega powerfull. Im not saying all 17-20Y.O. cant drive, but thats just how it is.

Poor lad. Enforcing the debate from the other week as to whether you'd swerve for an animal. Certainly not.

45mph....bollocks to that unless there were massive ditches either side !!

Moral of the story. Don't brake or swerve for small animals.

the police are wankers and press charges for nothing. if they havent this time, then perhaps it isnt bullshit?

or do you work for insurance or police crash investigation type people?

Cars crumple like crazy, they're made out of foil these days and an object that weighs in the region of a tonne going at 45 mph has a hell of a lot of energy to dissipate somewhere.
