    Exclamation Next time u put your foot down think.

    Robbed this of another forum but its a really good read and really opens your eyes to what can happen with a split second mistake. Some people may have read it before. its the 5th comment down.


    ...think about the consequences of what happened to a guy called Dan. He's a regular on Pistonheads, username '10 Pence Short'. His story is one that sounds potentially familiar; car enthusiast, member on owner forums (Honda in this case), went out on a meet with some others from the club and took in a favourite piece of road...

    The difference is that on this particular day, he got it wrong.


    I read it and thought it maybe some use to some people who might be in need of a wake up call.

    Its From pistonheads and i hope its not a repost on here.

    Read his thread
