I'm intrigued as to what the people carrier was, apparently its vital information now.

It'll probably be another article later in the day "Renault involved in a crash"

The Echo wants people to start commenting to the tune of "serves driver right for having an expensive car!" and a flame war to ensue, thus pushing their page impression rate up.

They are. A woman nearly crashed into me this morning by pulling into my lane without indication or looking. I had to swerve. This was on a dual carriage way by Ower in Romsey. Our cars were parallel at the time as approaching the roundabout (so low speed fortunately, and I was able to evade).
People need to look more, and not be in such a hurry all the time. It's not a race, and it's better to arrive late and in one piece than to become a smashed up smear on the road and a bunch of flowers in a layby.

The irony is that they wouldn't arrive late anyway. All the rushing about people do really doesn't save them any time. They feel like if they get one car-length ahead, they're making progress, but they're not. The moment you're out of the traffic it will have made no difference whatsoever. In fact, it's quite commonplace for people to go racing ahead, have to brake at the next set of lights, and have the person they just overtook come sailing past them at a steady pace. I see it all the time.

Same with motorways;its already been established that if drivers maintained the 70 mph limit,that motorways would flow far easier,there would be less accidents,and everyone would get to their destinations quicker.

So, due to one incident that happened to you we are to conclude that this is statistically significant enough to determine that all drivers are always in too much of a rush?

Wasn't it lucky there was a driving story on this site to let you get all that off your chest...

Too congested? Probably.

Now, wait until Keith House has built houses all over Boorley Green, Botley, and what's left of the greenery in Hedge End. Then there'll be even more traffic funneling through M27 J7.

The morning queues the whole length of Charles Watts Way will seem like free-flowing traffic.
