  1. Another unnecessary oversized car, thankfully no pedestrians were hurt. About time these cars were banned.

    • It’s quite terrifying, really. If you were walking along there, you wouldn’t have stood a chance.

    • Nothing to do with oversized cars. Buses go up and down that hill all the time.

      Unless it was a medical episode, this would have been down to very poor driving. My guess is approaching the middle bend too quickly. Could have happened to any sized car.

  2. I think it’s time that all Thanet sea fronts were pedestrianised. We missed being involved in the crash in Ramsgate seafront by minutes last week, the bottleneck at the end of Broadstairs is a nightmare, and Margate seafront could have traffic diverted.

    • Without doubt, I totally concur Broadstairs should be pedestrianised, would be nice to have outside seating for all the restaurants/bars instead of 4×4’s squeezing past each other and parking on double yellows or the pavement to buy a bag of chips or a burger as they know they won’t get a ticket – when was the last time we see a beat bobby or traffic warden in town to move them on?

      • Whilst making more parts of Broadstairs one way and with larger areas for walking and tables would be lovely it can’t realistically be done without a thorough review of parking plans and enforcement. In addition to enable traffic to flow of changes at Carlton Avenue would need to be made.

  3. How does somebody manage to create all this carnage around that part of the road?Drugs,alcohol or/and on mobile?

  4. Unlikely & very rare, but unfortunately it happens, but a possibility.
    So let’s not judge until we know the facts
