i know someone who lost car @ 60 in a 30 zone and went into a ca dealers. Hit 12 cars and wrote 5 off.

Got away with it as she told police that she swerved to avoid a cat :confused:

i couldent believe it when she said that she had got away with it, best thing was she was chasing her ex girlfriend at the time

edit: can't remember exact numbers but she wrote at least 3 cars off

I smashed my MR2 almost in half and knocked down 2 lamp posts on oposite sides of the road in a 30 limit. Just because its a 30 it doesnt mean that he was doing 30, so thats your query answered :)

I've seen a car roll over at ~25mph in front of me. Hit a curb which got the car sideways and the tyres gripped at the wrong moment and bam! At least the end result was one less badly modified Corsa on the roads :)

///engage bmw owner mode///if it had been a bmw the extra power and drivers car effect would have enabled the superior owner to control the car in a cool and safe manner all thanks to the superios build quality and the POWAH

I was coming home from my dad's one evening and there was a 4x4 on its roof in the middle of the road. This was a 30 road with speedbumps in it. No idea how you manage that.

If it was an SJ, he'd probably tried to turn a corner or something.

As Jason Plato said on last weeks 5thGear:

*swerve* *crash* *roll*

Driver: "You know what that was?"
Passenger: "No?"
Driver: "That was me reaching deep into my bag of talent and realising it wasn't quite a full as I thought it was"
