  1. Drew and Carl, words fail, you fail to realise that death by dangerous driving may well have nothing to do with speeding but there are a wealth of other reasons and none of them make good reading.
    all drivers at the end of the day are responsible for operating a machine safely the end result here is sadly another victim, and family suffering at the hands of a driver arrested for the above offence, so it matters not one jot, speculating yourself as evidence has to be gathered to find out the full reason. But that road sadly has past history of speeding, mobile phone use etc. etc. the list is endless and equally harrowing

  2. I agree this is awful for the late man’s family and friends but how do you know that the vehicle was speeding. The article doesn’t say anything about speed and you can be fatally injured at 10mph.

  3. Once again, someone blames speed, without actually knowing the facts. An awful incident for all involved, and there families.

  4. How awful for the late man’s family and friends, that road is 30mph all the way, just why given excess cars on the road would someone feel it doesn’t apply to them, what a ghastly thing to happen in our own community
