Accident on Wakefield Ave

By Kerces 27 November 2006 26

This morning a car ran into a lightpost just near the ABC building on Wakefield Avenue. The lightpole was rather bent and in a display of speedy work, it had been removed and a new one waiting to go in within an hour of this photo being taken.

“D” for “Doof-doof speakers installed”

Guru,

I agree. After spending 20 years on bikes I reckon I learnt to be a much better driver, simply because you get a sixth sense about traffic and what it’s going to do.

Albeit, I no longer ride….

I’m with you, guru. Fatheads in hot cars who think they’re good drivers but haven’t yet found their indicators, geriatrics who come to a stop at roundabouts because they can’t see around the corner properly, should all be compulsorily put on bikes to see what the results of their actions are.

VB’s plans for specific plates makes a lot of sense – “B” for bikers would be useful, as hopefully we can trust most of them to understand the road rules a bit better (except when indicators don’t self-cancel.

as a motorcyclist i have observed that all car drivers are idiots. i propose the all prospective cage drivers do a year on a motorcycle, with no capacity limit. by the end of said year, most of the idiots will have been culled through natural selection.

Aw c’mon B_K. It’s a slow news day, of course I’m rolling out all the stereotypes that I can find 🙂

My vote goes to whatever party announces a ‘W’ plate, for Women car drivers.

So the rest of us can watch out for Learners with their ‘L’ plates, Probationary drivers with their ‘P’ plates, and soon ‘W’ plates for Women drivers.

Think of all the accidents it will prevent! We will see the ‘W’ plate, and watch out for wacky lane changing without indicating, last minute dives onto the brakes cos they didn’t see the red light, and slow acceleration from intersections, the drifting between lanes cos they are applying lipstick and blush whilst driving….!

Not to mention avoiding parking next to a ‘W’ plater, cos the odds are they will clip your car when they reverse from their car park. The same car park they did 16 attempts to drive forwards into.

Think of what this can be extended to….

‘E’ plates, for Elderly drivers.

‘L’ plates, for Lesbians. (Apparently VYBerlinaV8 is already harassing our politicians for this one).

‘G’ plates for the gays.

And so on 🙂
