    Default Not something you like to see

    Driving into work this morning, met a collegue at a roundabout who has just bought a mk3 Fiesta RS Turbo. I gave it some licks off the roundabout but nothing too serious or illegal, levelled off at the speed limit then looked in my mirror to see where he was and guess what.....

    ..... he was heading towards the back of my car sideways! He came off too quickly, didn't judge my speed, hit his brakes and lost control! Luckily he didn't hit me but he did a 720 then went backwards into a strainer post!

    Lucky for him he had almost stopped and all he did was put a small crack in his bumper and did not damage the post!

    He managed to go over the only low kerb for about 2 miles!

    Bear in mind I am 32 now and a professional driver so doing silly speeds is not my thing not only for safety but would rather keep a clean licence!

    To top his day off, he was out in a hired transit and the side door fell off!?! No idea how but it hit the car behind damaging the bonnet, bumper, wing and mirror!

    Needless to say, I made sure I left work WELL before he did!

    All this excitement at my age is not good for the ol' ticker!!

    People shouldn't be allowed to buy cars that are beyond their capabilities. There needs to be some sort of training/test.

    Your colleague needs to learn to drive. The Fiesta RS Turbos are hardly super quick....

    Maybe he should trade it in for a 1.1 Popular Plus.
