Southeast, veering southwest, 5 or 6, increasing 7 or gale 8, occasionally severe gale 9 later. Rain or showers. Moderate or good, occasionally poor.

Our on the spot photographer makes the news.

 

Yikes! Two people decided to drive 150ft off the cliff at pigeon stream.

Someone has to...

I hope everyone involved makes a speedy recovery - looks like a near miracle that one actually was unhurt...

Seeing as anyone can speculate on here without knowing any facts ..

 

red car

 

sporty

 

driven by a twat?

 

left the road at speed?

 

loads of rubber skid marks further up the road?

 

What I'd give to have seen the look on their faces when they realised they had lost control. :lol: :lol: :lol: It's always nice to know there is now another safe driver (or two) on Manks roads. Or at least they will be careful drivers now they have a better understanding how quickly it can all end.

 

That which doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.

That's the other end of Marine Drive, not my jurisdiction :P Same spot as Nicola Bentham went off in her Metro.

 

There was some lad testing out his new exhaust by blatting round Marine Drive on Christmas Eve, he hemped up to the top road, where I was waiting. He actually pulled over, turned around and came back so i could tell him off, later heard him drive back past at a normal speed.

 

Hopefully, he will see this in the papers and realise that it could have quite easily been him.

 

Edit - "loads of rubber skid marks further up the road?" - A lot of those marks are from the Rally Stage.

Jeez. Must've been like that scene is the Blues Brothers where the Nazis sail off the unfinished freeway! :o

Incredible that one occupant escaped without injury. I bet the underwear was a write-off though..

 

 

 

Red, sporty cars, driven like a twat? Hey - I resemble that remark. :huh:

I can see the headlines now

Renewed calls for an all island speed limit as car goes over cliff.

DoT to install roundabout on Marine Drive to aid traffic flow.

Multimillion pound bypass proposed to cut Marine Drive traffic chaos

:lol:

Don't even joke about these things as they could happen!!!!

Ha. But you started it. Trust the crazy anti-speed limit loony lobby to try to score points from this.

 

Still thank goodness nobody was killed and that we have therefore been spared from yet another mawkish RIP / my thoughts with family thread.

For every dogger that ever there was

Will gather there for certain because

Today's the day the Doggers have their picnic.

 

Every Dogger who's been good

Is sure of a treat today.

There's lots of marvellous things to see

And wonderful games to play.

 

Beneath the trees where nobody sees

They'll hide and seek as long as they please

'Cause that's the way the Doggers have

their picnic.

 

If you go down to marine drive today,

You'd better not go alone.

It's lovely down marine drive today,

But safer to stay at home.

 

For every Dogger that ever there was

Will gather there for certain because

Today's the day the Doggers have their picnic. :lol:
