    How many RTA's have you seen today?!

    I'm sick of seeing road accidents lately... what's going on?!

    This seems to be the worst winter i've ever seen for crashes. Maybe i'm covering a wider driving area this year but it's scary nonetheless.

    I nearly crashed myself the other night when the huge van in front of me, blocking my view ahead decided to slam its brakes on last minute at the lights... I think it was down to my tyres that I didn't crash though thank G-d!

    My mum's BF went to london from here (manchester) at the weekend and he lost count of the number of accidents he saw.

    Am I the only person thinking this?

    Not seen any actual RTAs but we had a girl trying her best on Saturday. Dunno what her problem was but she tried to overtake me and my mate in the SRi T twice on a dual carriageway 30 mph zone, as we were slowing to queuing traffic, each time oblivious to the queuing traffic in the outside lane. Cue panicked braking and swerving back in behind us :roll:

    There was one on the Lea Valley Road from Ponder's End to Chingford yesterday. To make it worse, rubber neckers going the other way smashed into each other too, which totally blocked the road.

    No offence taken. Bloody women drivers.

    I haven't seen any accidents myself yet *touches wood* but there have been a few bunches of flowers popping up at numerous places which is a great shame.

    I saw one and I was almost in it on the M1. I stopped, car behind stopped, car behind that stopped. But alas the lorry behind didnt. It smashed all the other cars together and fortunately the car behind me stopped about an inch from my bumper. All I kept thinking was if he hits my car im going to hit him. After all the tyre smoke cleared I drove away. I could have been modelling a newly designed rear bumper. lucky....yes very

    I was nearly in another crash tonight... was turning right at a crossroad junction, car opposite me was turning to its right. Next I here beeeeeeeeeeeeeep and a car in the lane to the left of me nearly went straight into the car opposite me at about 40MPH! Would almost certainly have spun into me if they would have collided!

    It's gonna get worse now... roads are getting icier by the day
