    Default Darwin's aim is a bit out...

    Seems some high speed action on the N1 on Sunday night ended with a rolly polly. Armco barrier breached and not really effective for a crash of such speed and violence.

    Footage here
    Mercedes W123 300D, runs on Mother Natures Goodness.
    Powered by the Sun, the Rain and the Earth.
    Have now covered 270 000Km on veg oil.
    Oh, and an Isuzu 280DT, 40 000Km on Bio Diesel
    Rand for Rand gets 33Km/L

    Just can not feel sorry for idiots like this...
    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.

    That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    The biggest problem I have with this is that these idiots are putting me and my family at risk when I am on the roads.

    He is lucky he didn't kill anyone in the process... Imagine losing both your legs and then a few charges of manslaughter in the mix as well... No sympathy
    If Force is not the solution, not enough of it was applied....

    Saw the video...there were a lot of other road-users on the N1. The behavior of both the drivers (car and bike) were beyond stupid. Fortunately no innocent person was harmed by their reckless driving and as the saying goes...as jy soek vir k##' dan kry jy k##'. This is probably another case of a parent who provided his kid with a weapon that he was not trained to use properly.

    This is always interesting (in bold): "The driver of a BMW, who lost control of his vehicle and crashed on the N1 in Century City in an apparent "street race", is in a critical condition."

    Armco is not designed for such speed, nothing is.

    Looks like the idiot undertook someone in the slow lane then lost control swerving back to the fast lane.

    Pure stupidity driving those speeds on a busy highway
