Saw the aftermath of this..... bearing in mind its a 30mph limit , the front-end damage to the car that was pointing towards the police station was nothing short of astonishing.... either that car was made of balsa wood , or the car was hit as one of the vehicles travelled far in excess of 30mph. Its one of the problems with fixed speed cameras.... people pass them and then put their foot down...

And/or the front impact zone did its job in protecting its occupants by crumpling instead if transferring the impact to the passengers

Accident damage always looks far worse

If both cars that had the incident were travelling at 30mph then it would be a 60mph collision, the damage to the vehicle's would be substantial..
