    Default This should slow any driver down

    Dont know if its a repost, but this is the same video that they showed at my speed awareness course.

    After it finished the place was very silent for a few mins......

    Its graphical so be warned .........

    One of the best posts I have seen for a while and should make us all think. Dealt with a fair bit of death and destruction in the past, we really do take for granted our time on this planet. I no longer ride a bike for this very reason. Cheers Spenny,

    Robbie

    I think it is a good idea to re-post this thread. It brings it all home to you, and the newer members will see it too. A stark reminder about speeding can only be a good thing in the long run.

    The speed awareness course was a good 4 hours, and i would have this recommended to be taken at the point before sitting your test, can be shown in classrooms along with the written test

    Makes the point very clear

    oh yeah, seen that before. tbh though, you'd have to be a complete twit to drive like that in built up areas.
    bit of a difference between giving it some beans on a clear dual carriageway with long sightlines, and booting it like a chav through london.
