How can a driver lose control in a 30mph limit? I manage to control my car and motorbike at any speed limit. What is wrong with people? Does no one know how to drive anymore?

Is it me, or has anyone else noticed that a certain class of car seems to be predominantly driven by a particular calibre of driver?

Hi Here's what MIGHT have happened, based on my experience yesterday morning :

I swim early mornings in Dorchester and at 7.15 yesterday the temperature in my car showed 2 degrees (I de-iced the windscreen but didn't really consider the roads would be bad.

1/2 a mile out of crossways on the I hit a sheet of black ice at roughly 30-40 mph & truth be told there was nothing much I could do about it veering from one side of the road to the the I hit a bank & the car rolled on to its side. Luckily I was uninjured, climbed out the sunroof, dusted myself down and called the police to let them know, I was breathalized (all fine) and asked the two officers to request sanding of the road as I was genuinely worried of others doing the same, as a car had skidded to a halt to try & see if I was ok. The officers were a couple of nice blokes by the way who gave me a lift home, so no complaints there.

The noteworthy point was the officers comment that council would be unlikely to come & grit as they had set routes.

I was lucky, the lady in the story slightly less so. My point though is that accidents do happen involving one vehicle where the person is not at fault .

It's not a perfect world, but hey, lets hear the facts before sanctimoniously patting ourselves on the back & lamenting others.
