    Judging by the damage, the vehicle would seem to have been proceeding well within the speed limit for a residential area, and in control of a skilfull driver witha current valid driver’s license, and insurance.
    Yes, it’s possible that although the driver was not badly injured, that he might benefit from a brain-transplant.

    You cannot beat , the uk, vehicle ,MOT. not saying its 99% perfect, but it gives a guarantee. without a MOT your vehicle becomes illegal. we need vehicle spot checks, random breath testing and seizure of illegal vehicles. number plates should have the date of registration, and a personal key number which identifies that vehicle. Makes you feel that no one really cares, no one is saying anything .
