I'm convinced speeding is receiving...
08.30 this morning my friend and neighbour was startled by the sounds of a crash from the rear of their house. The rear faces a T junction at the bottom of a steep hill. This is what they found in their garden.

On the way home on country lanes i came across two vehicles driving quite erratic, after a few minutes it was obvious the car in front of me was trying to get the car in front to stop due to it driving all over the shop, we then approached a roundabout & noticed the first car slowed down to...
