What is it with idiots on this road .... does no one know how to drive on the M3 ???

Every week without fail you can guarantee there will be a couple of accidents somewhere btw j14 & j12 causing tailbacks all the way down the M27.

Time to reduce the speed limit or take the driving licences of these numpty's that don't know their stopping distances!!

Even when the vehicles had been removed to the hard shoulder, there were queues back to Rownhams and beyond, all caused by rubberneckers looking for gore,

How is it not possible that in this day and age something simple like screens cant be erected quickly near a crash? It would help protect the rescue service and if the view to the passing rubber necker is obscured they'll soon realise there's nothing to see and drive at normal speeds at least that way ensuring only 1 set of hold ups.

One can but dream...

Screens will never be a reality in this scenario. Too much risk involved.

It is ridiculous though. Twice last week there were crashes in this area, another this week. Countless before and who knows how many to come.

At peak times the roads are at capacity yet so many absolute numptys cannot drive well, using some common sense.

All of these incidents will have been caused by either;

People driving too close to the car infront.

People changing lanes without looking properly or indicating.

People making stupid manouvers around the slip roads.

Why on earth can't people adjust their speed to allow traffic to join the motorway rather than either slamming on the brakes or changing lanes, both of which are factors that add to the congestion.

Idiots idiots idiots.
