    • And a one way street so no worries about oncoming traffic, hardly needs sherlock to suggest they put their foot down on a clear road, but clearly weren’t in control. Hopefully they were properly insured and their insurers make good on the losses of the owners of the other vihicles that were hit promptly.
      If they weren’t insured, put them back in the car and crush it.

  1. Shame it wasn’t the driver who decided to overtake along Newington Rd first thing this morning.

    Driving standards are atrocious!

  2. There was a driver rampaging around Hereson road garage and up Muir road. The car sounded like a DIY sports car, if you understand what I mean 🤨

    I am waiting for the time some wannabe Lewis Hamilton totals into the cars along the small roads off Hereson 🧐

  3. At least the driver had the consideration,to go the correct way along the one-way street.That is excellent driving,by Thanet standards.

  4. I’m not sure Belmont rd could be described as a ‘dangerous road.’ And why wasn’t the driver taken to the QEQM? I thought the A+E dept. has just been upgraded.
