Yep another M1 crash which was caused by another incompetent driver.
Happens almost everyday and we put up with it!
Driver will be fined a couple of $$$ and allowed back on the road unchecked.
Time for these people in the wrong to be re tested to make sure they are capable of driving and understand that a license is a privilege not a right to create carnage or even death on our roads.
