Head on accidents

By smokey4 - 28 August 2008 21

I noticed that Pialligo ave closed this morning West of Sutton Road due to a head on accident. Similar thing last week.

What is causing this? Drugs, alcohol, or Kangaroos?

If people are swerving to avoid roos then they are probably doing the wrong thing.

Better to brake and keep control of the vehicle than swerve and hit a stationary object like a tree or a moving object like another vehicle.

What’s Your opinion?

I think it’s more ‘while drivers exist there will be accidents’.

Actually yes that’s more accurate… but without cars there’s no drivers 😉

You only get sent to the Offal Thread for vile puns (mainly).

Nice pick-up. (Or maybe it was a crew cab.) Keep that up, L, and ant and Granny will banish you to the offal thread too.

No! Not the offal! Anything but the offal! I promise I’ll be offaly good from now on …

It’s caused by 2 cars colliding.

Whilst cars exist, there will be accidents.

Unless they only have one. *chuckle*

Bright sun in one of the drivers eyes?

Well, they should be using both eyes …

The intersection where it happened is a shocker in the mornings. It’s where sutton rd spills out onto Pialligo, with massive numbers of traffic coming from Qbn going to Canberra, and significant numbers coming from Canberra to Qbn.

There’s a ton of cars and trucks waiting to get off Sutton Rd onto Pialligo, and it is really dangerous. Most of them are turning across the road, to head to Canberra. And most of the traffic going both ways is trying to do 100.

So they’re waiting for a break that seldom comes, and then jumping out. I used to be driving from the Qbn end, wondering what each one was going to do, wait in the middle of the road and ease in, or just push in?

There’s been a few nasty smashes there, this was yet another one. You only heard about it because they closed the road. Usually there’s just a monster bank-up while they push the mess off the road.

Isn’t Pialligo Ave the road in from Queanbeyan?? Say no more 😉

Stupidity plain and simple. People don’t know how to drive. Do the log book, pay the instructor and get the licence… the ACT has the country’s weakest driver licensing laws.

People not indicating? Whoops, let’s not open Pandora’s floodgates on that one again.
