The Modern Day Traffic Accident…

No longer a case of ‘Exchange insurance details, call the AA if needed, shake hands & part as friends’:
Chris Newman, 26, who was sitting in a restaurant opposite, told the Standard: “We heard a loud bang and I looked up to see the car sliding across the street with its wheels missing. It was a big crash and a big impact.
“The driver was out in the street saying ‘did you see what he did?’ I don’t know what he was talking about but it seemed like it might have been the motorcyclist who made him swerve.
“The Audi was completely written off and parts of the car were strewn all over the four lanes of the junction.
“One of the girls in the back of the car had cuts on her face and some bruising and she was visibly shaken up. She was white as a sheet.”
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “Police were called at around 8.20pm last night to a collision involving two cars and a motorcycle in Sydenham Road near the junction with Newland Park Road.
“Fights broke out in the aftermath of the collision, involving around 25 people. Four males were arrested.”
They can’t all have been passengers in the cars involved! Whatever happened to this country..?

Ah the PONAs strike again eh?

Fender benders around these parts with someone of a darker hue is met with about 200 of the fuckers who appear from nowhere surrounding you.

I could of course be totally wrong here, and it might well be bowler hatted, pin stripe suited, briefcase and umbrella toting chaps from the city after a bit of a hard day, letting off a bit of steam...

Nothing happened to the country.

Whats changed is the type of people who now are allowed to live in this country.

'Whatever happened to this country..?'

Prior to radiator plod, there was the single handicap of Institutional corruption.

Your posts would make Goebbels blush Melvin.
May I also point out that they are not funny either.

Nothing has happened to this country where a chance of a punch up is in the offing. Fifty years ago these would be rare events, but not unheard of. Nowadays they're still not really commonplace, it just goes to show that we have always loved a good old ruckus. We haven't been completely feminised.

Deport the buggers, even if they were born here.

It sounds as if they don't make cars like they used to, or the drivers were going a tad too fast.

But then if those of no appearance were involved all bets are off.

Re, deport the buggers. The Danes and the Norwegians are doing just that, in spades, if you'll pardon the pun. See The Local Denmark/Norway for more details.

"Ah the PONAs strike again eh? "

Yup, that was my first thought too.

"We imported this sort of behaviour"

Indeed.

"It sounds as if they don't make cars like they used to, or the drivers were going a tad too fast."

It doesn't seem to take much these days to leave cars a write-off, but I suppose that;'s down to the insurance companies, more so than manufactures...

"The Danes and the Norwegians are doing just that, in spades, if you'll pardon the pun."

It took them long enough to wake up, though...
