Those hedges on the A31 are very dangerous and should be banned!
Seriously, how the hell can you crash into a hedge on that piece of road?
Modern driving standards are being eroded by so many driver aids in cars, anti lock this, anti that, anti the other. Does no one know how to drive any more?
We can all assume what happened, but at the end of the day it's not the road or the car, but the person sat in the right hand seat with their feet on the controls. Most cars have 3 pedals and the important one is in the middle. It's called a brake!!!!! Use it. Take your phones out of your hand, put them away, and concentrate on what is going on at the end of your car bonnet.
There, rant over, glad no one was hurt
