Re: Seven Confirmed Dead in M5 Accident in Somerset

There's a bit of a disagreement as to whether it was bad fog or if it was smoke drifting over from a bonfire and firework display nearby. They need someone to blame, understandably

Re: Seven Confirmed Dead in M5 Accident in Somerset

The police are now saying that fog wasn't a factor in the cause of the crash and that the cause was smoke from a fireworks display at a nearby rugby club, police have launched a criminal investigation probing safety measures taken by the club, this is being reported by numerous periodicals that don't let the truth get in the way of a good yarn so please don't take it as the Gods honest truth.

Even if it was thick smoke, theres always some driver error. Ive seen it happen before with farmers fires. As soon as drivers hit the smoke they slam on their brakes and ofcourse get smashed into from behind. They tell you to move to the slow lane and slow down to 40 or less.

Also in the big crash that happened 6 or so years ago, when people hit the fog, some of them actually stopped their cars and ran to the hard shoulder. Leaving their cars in the middle of the motorway.

So yeah..fog/thick smoke/ driver error and tail gating caused this.

Wrong.

Driver error is doing an "oopsie sorry heres my details".

Leaving your car in the middle of a live motorway or braking hard on a motorway as soon as you hit foggy conditions is plain retardation.

I know for a fact that these people died because 1 or 2 people fucked up in a big way and the trucks around them had to go all out in order to stop.

Now there was something like 4 big trucks in the middle of that? I guess stupidity knows no bounds.
