    The crash detectives

    It's a good series, it shows us why driving is so dangerous because there are lunatics out there who will drive while drunk, talking on a mobile phone, and steaming YouTube. This week the episode was so sad that poor families' lives were shattered forever because of one stupid idiot, who will probably be out of jail in less than five years.

    It also gave me a better understanding of why the roads are closed so long after all accidents, they are doing an important job looking for evidence.

    I'd recommend The Detectives - Taking down an OCG. It's about drugs lines in Rochdale.
    It's been on BBC2 this week at 9. The final part is tonight i think, but theyre all currentlyon iPlayer.
    Crash detectives is very good.

    There are some absolute tossers behind the wheel and with the increase of cars on the road it's going to get worse

    You touch on my gripe.I was putting a rubbish bag in my bin the other day out the front when my head lifted by the noise of a car screeching around the corner (above 20mph) and as well as being on his mobile he had a hole in his exhaust thus making a great deal of noise.Seeing the look of disgust on my face he just grinned and poked his tongue out at me as if to say tough titty pal what are you gonna do about it.This absolute tosser as you put it knew his chances of being caught by the police were slim to nil. Boils my piss-rant over

    I was coming out of Bridgend on the A48 the other day and from a distance i could see an idiot overtaking at high speed on the crossed hatches area coming towards me , I just slowed and let him get on with it

    Everyone makes mistakes on the road but driving at high speed makes things so much worse if there is a collision

    Total fruitloops

    I think some people are driving more aggressively on local roads due to the 20mph limit. Recently there has been a number of crashes on mountain road in Caerphilly. I didn't recall such regularity prior to the law

    Of course they will, it's a disaster, I've seen more overtaking in quiet streets in the last few months than in the last five years, people hardly ever did it before the 20mph decline.

    Most people are now back to 30mph, but those that stick to 18 are being beeped and overtaken.

    I saw the first one, wow Rochdale is like the Wild West, try and bury an axe in someone's head over a road-age incident!

    Hopefully as it unfolds they'll jail the lot of them

    A young man was killed locally recently , he was exiting a side road and was hit side on by a motorcyclist doing 100mph , totally innocent

    Fireball , both dead

    5 in the morning , no excuses for doing that sort of speed in perfect conditions in daylight

    Wtf is going through people's minds

    Yes they are shocking, this week was worse I think, three and four-year-old children were killed by a drunk driver it was heartbreaking.

    Some bloke up the valleys the other week, hit and killed some poor drunk young lad in the road, claimed he thought he'd hit a fridge, he was drugged up!

    I haven't seen any of it, but I have suggested several times that forcing cars to do 20mph won't stop any of these incidents.

    In the list of traffic incidents with casualties and fatalities available for 2022 from statswales, I did a search for some for newspaper accounts for some of the more serious incidents. Dangerous driving appeared to be a common theme. Someone replied in this thread about one incident in the early hours of the morning. I was surprised at how many serious traffic incidents occur when it is dark, particularly in quiet areas where drivers think nobody else is about. Adult pedestrians were often run over late at night, possibly worse for wear and not concentrating on the road.

    The Welsh Government's claims about how many lives will be saved and how fewer people will need hospital treatment are a load of bollocks as I don't think they've taken into consideration that you'll get road users who will act dangerously.

    I haven't seen the final episode yet but read earlier that the young lad who got attacked with the machete died a few months ago. Never really got over it by the sound of it.

    Re: The crash detectives

    On Tuesday I drove down to the ticket office to pick up our Sjoke tickets, twice I was in a queue of traffic doing 20mph and we were all overtaken by a car on the wrong side of the road.
    Broad daylight and they didn’t give a frigg

    The crash on the mountain had nothing to do with the 20MPH, the drivers a nutter https://caerphilly.observer/news/102...r-after-crash/.

    There’s regularly crashes on the at stretch of road, I live there. Before the 20MPH a young lad going home from school was hit by a drug driver and had his foot amputated https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/w...yards-27389536

    The crashes are because some people are absolute idiots.

    I agree, and that's why the 20mph was a complete waste of time, it just makes safe law-abiding citizens drive slower, the lunatics killing people won't change their behavior.

    I agree

    The 20 mph is daft but it's not going to lead to more road deaths

    Roath deaths are almost exclusively down to excessive speed , drink or drugs or medical conditions

    I think they should have spent money on more flashing lights recording your spend entering urban areas , it certainly makes me slow down but there seem to be less of them

    This is generally enough to bring down people's speed

    It's incredible there seems to be less of these

    Hopeless idiots

    Avoid the Albany Rd & City Rd areas seems the best advice

    Tragic, what a brave young man, his life ruined by drug-running gangland scum!

    Absolutely unbelievable, especially the last episode.
