    Doubt it, there are drivers out there that think they are living in a video game, you see it everywhere, even in town centres.
    No possibility on that road to overtake safely, more cameras are needed.

    • There’s plenty of room to overtake but not on that corner, there was water on that stretch but I would bet it was distracted driving looking at phone or similar.

  2. That picture is an absolute disgrace.
    How disrespectful and rude it is to put that on here. Had someone have died and that image is how they found out would be disgusting.
    What an absolute disgrace!

    • That is the reality of what car accidents look like. Perhaps if people see what can happen they may think about driving a little more carefully.
