It's an accident waiting to happen. They speed down that road at over thirty miles per hour some of them. Reckless boy racers in souped up cars. My elderly wife and I have sometimes had to pull over for fear of having our Honda Jazz written off. They would get the birch if I had my way. National service and the birch for good measure is what I would do - never did me any harm. And the language when pass you - blinking this and chuffing that- it's shocking. But they'll probably get let off with slapped wrists and a free holiday on the international space station with a thousand pounds spending money and a canoe and some ski's. It's a disgrace. Bread, water and hard labour for them - never did me any harm.

So it's you that i am sat behind at 25 mph in the outside lane, forcing other drivers to undertake you, Crompton Way is a 40 mph road.
You need to take refresher driving lessons, when was the last time you checked what has changed in the highway code. If your having to pull over because you're scared of what other drivers are doing it's time to take the bus. Also you know nothing about the accident apart from what this article has told you, "an accident waiting to happen" can be applied to all roads

Tell you what is an accident waiting to happen, and it is not on just Crompton Way but every road where there are speed camera's.

If a road is 40mph you can do 40 through the camera and not slam brakes on to go down to 25 - same with St Peters Way it is a 50mph road so why slam brakes on down to 40mph or less through the camera's???

A speed camera is not there for you to slam brakes on and drive between 5 and 15 under the limit - you can drive through the cameras at the limit of the road!!! Slamming your brakes on means that drivers behind have to slam brakes on and that could cause a pile-up if you get a couple of drivers with slower responses!!!

No its people like him that would be quick enough to make a compo claim after giving someone a 'brake test'. People who drive too slow on the roads and constantly have their foot attached to the brakes are an accident waiting to happen!

I agree with you. The law is a complete arse, put the thugs in the army for 10 years. When they go to prison it's like a holiday. the morons should be banned for life, it's other people that get injured or killed, The laws need to be changed and quick.

Whoever you are who wrote the nasty comment to Marco999. You sound like a right big head, if people choose to drive below the speed limit, that is up to them, far better driving too slow and getting there than speeding and possibly causing deaths, so get real and stop being so nasty.

On your driving test you get a fail point for driving to slow, it's called not making progress, If we all drove at 5 miles an hour with a guy walking in front of the car waving a red there would be no deaths on the road. Better still why don't we get rid of all forms of transport that has the potential to kill and walk everywhere.

I live on the estate in between the fire & police station, not hall i'th wood the other estate. I heard the skid and then heard the big crash from my bedroom, which isn't next to the road either, it was so loud! There was a red car and a silver car, the red car had been pushed sideways by the looks of it. So I think the red car had been pulling out of my estate and the silver car had crashed into it, pushing it sideways. One of them ran the red light although not sure which one. Just glad there was no fatalities!

So many inconsiderate people driving on the roads not least those who believe that because they are driving within the speed limit they can do anything they want.

If you're going to get behind the wheel of any vehicle you must be aware of all other vehicles on the road and drive accordingly. If you're not prepared to do this then hand back your licence.

Also, what you are doing is dangerous and illegal. The insurance companies don't automatically say it's the driver who run into the back of you. If it's proved that you slammed your breaks on for no other reason but to teach someone a lesson, then you're probably going to be done for fraud. So good luck with your dangerous driving, hope I catch some of it on my cameras.

It's an accident waiting to happen. They speed down that road at over thirty miles per hour some of them. Reckless boy racers in souped up cars. My elderly wife and I have sometimes had to pull over for fear of having our Honda Jazz written off. They would get the birch if I had my way. National service and the birch for good measure is what I would do - never did me any harm. And the language when pass you - blinking this and chuffing that- it's shocking. But they'll probably get let off with slapped wrists and a free holiday on the international space station with a thousand pounds spending money and a canoe and some ski's. It's a disgrace. Bread, water and hard labour for them - never did me any harm.
The accident has happened!

Tailgating is also illegal, it is people tailgating that cause crashes not people driving at or below the speed limit.
I generally drive at the speed limit and still enjoy a convoy of traffic behind me, all tailgating each other.
For the record I have never been involved in a crash or caused a crash in my 25yrs+ of happy motoring, people need to chill out and slow down, if you need to be somewhere then set off earlier, don't try to bully safe drivers off the road.

Got CCTV recording in my car, not that I would need it don't drive close enough to losers like you, just overtake you when it's safe to do so. I know your next move is to speed up to try and prevent me, as you haven't quite grown up yet.
I am not the one getting angry over a bit of text, I dread to think what you are like behind the wheel of a car, you seem to assume that I would speed up to stop you overtaking, that is pure prosumption on your part and a very good indicator that you suffer from road rage, as for growing up, I lost the urge to race around about 2 weeks after passing my test, may I suggest that you book yourself in for some anger management :)

It's people like you who incite road rage!!
No its people like him that would be quick enough to make a compo claim after giving someone a 'brake test'. People who drive too slow on the roads and constantly have their foot attached to the brakes are an accident waiting to happen!
Keep a safe stopping distance away from the car in front would be my advice, driving 5ft behind a car will not get you there any faster than driving 25ft behind, although with the latter you have more chance of actually getting there.

I agree with you. The law is a complete arse, put the thugs in the army for 10 years. When they go to prison it's like a holiday. the morons should be banned for life, it's other people that get injured or killed, The laws need to be changed and quick.
Quite right, put them in the Army so their shenanigans can get real soldiers killed! That'll teach them, won't it?
