ANYONE looking at today’s pictures and video of a collision on Poole’s Alder Road is likely to recoil in shock.

The footage, released by the police as a warning, shows a motorcyclist going too fast past a line of slow-moving traffic, only to come up against a car emerging from a side road. He spent three weeks in hospital.

Some motorcyclists will point out, quite rightly, that they tend to be more at risk from thoughtless drivers than the other way round.

But this video is a powerful reminder to all road users of the need to travel cautiously and at a sensible speed.
