It must be pretty boring living on a big,damp island.Leads to all kinds of quirky entertainment. Mind you,watching Basil Fawlty beat the crap out of his car on his BritCom "Fawlty Towers" was pretty hilarious.

That early nineties Escort was a disaster regarding safety - Ford got wiser after rivals VW and GM launched their Mk3 Golf and Mk2 Astra. The red car is a Rover 114 - started life as an Austin Metro. It was just awful, even when new.

Unfortunately, this boring damp island has recently been home to several high profile high speed rear impacts that have claimed lives on the motorway. An entire family of six were wiped out when their Toyota Previa was re-ended by an inattentive lorry driver. The whole family.

In another Previa-related accident, a drunk football player in a Range Rover, rear-ended the Toyota, sending it tumbling down a motorway embankment. The father was paralysed; his two young sons killed.

More recently, a family of three were en route to the airport when their Fiat Punto (a euro compact) was rear ended at over 80mph by an Audi Q7. The Audi drive was - and I kid you not - masturbating at the time of impact. The Audi driver was unhurt. The accident claimed the life of the Punto's driver, seriously injured his wife, and killed their only son. The mum was left both husband- and child-less.

So that 'quirky entertainment' serves to remind us all - wherever we are - of the very real dangers we face from the car/lorry behind.
