Someone must have been speeding as there is a car flipped upside down.

Always in a rush some people. But they never really gain anything. like cars overtaking me today on Thamesdown Drive. I was doing the 40 mph speed limit , they must have have been doing at least 10 mph more and then they had to stop at the same traffic lights at the same time I pulled up !! Then later a transit van like mine trying to race past me back to West Swindon as the duel carriageway turns into a two way road cutting me up in the process !

If they were doing at least 10mph more then you, how come you both stopped at the traffic lights at the same time?
Maths/physics can't be your strong point, nor English language it seems, as you appear to be having a shoot-out on a DUEL carriageway

I did a physics degree and also english comprehension at school and I understood what he said (making allowances for the quite obviously inaccurate phrase "same time"), why can't you?

So I'll try to explain to you in as simple a way as possible, such that you can comprehend. It's a common occurrence - he was overtaken by someone speeding and yet they both later hit the same red light and had to stop - so what was the point of speeding?

There's nothing worse that a pedantic, pretentious dick-head.

Don't they have speed check devices on Thamesdown Drive? If they detect a speeding vehicle the traffic lights go red to stop them- and everybody else of course.

It's quite scary how people have been so brainwashed that they automatically think someone must have been speeding whenever an accident occurs.

Judging by the scores Ringer, clearly no one cares. People voting in favour of someone insulting someone else tells you all you need to know about why Swindon is seen as a dump!
