Flipping out

In today's news, a woman was sentenced to six months for drink driving. She was driving to a wake in Peterborough, having consumed a good amount of vodka beforehand. Needless to say, she ended up flipping her car over a roundabout. Astoundingly, her child of less than two years escaped unhurt.

Furthermore, this happened on a road we use very frequently. A road where people seem to take such unbelievable risks. The A605 between Warmington and Peterborough is truly wild. Dashcams are a must if you frequent this road, because the behaviour of its drivers is truly astounding. All responsibility seems to go out of the window when people ride this road!

Another local road which sees idiotic driving is the A14 near Kettering. This p*sspot was three and a half times over the limit, and despite managing to achieve a 360 degree spin, still carried on. A court heard that the 43 year old driver was not wearing shoes, while officers saw a smashed pint glass at his feet and a bottle of wine in the passenger seat. He then smashed the windscreen and walked out into the road after being told to stay in his car when he was found by police.
