THERE were dramatic scenes on the A354 Weymouth Way last night after a car flipped coming off a roundabout.

Emergency services closed the road towards the town centre after the accident. A police spokesman at the scene said it occurred when the driver lost control coming off Chafey's roundabout.

He was uninjured.

A spokesman for the fire service said three people travelling in the car were treated for scratches. Officers set up a roadblock as vehicle recovery took place.

Driving like a complete idiot on public roads and well beyond their driving ability. The good news being there is one less reckless fool on the roads for a short duration.

Chafeys roundabout is slippery in places. I was coming the other way from goldcroft to go along the bypass and ended up facing a signpost, managed to correct skid.

There have been a few problems on that roundabout - seems like either there are oil patches or the composition of the tarmac is dodgy in places.

Made much worse when its just started to rain after a long dry spell.

One MUST drive according to conditions, a bit of rain after a dry spell is no excuse for careless driving! Prosecution for reckless driving? (Doubt it).

Traffic along Littlemoor Road seems to be mostly keeping to the speed limits now. I guess never knowing whether the unmarked car is there or not helps.
The biggest bugbear now seems to be those who need to read the rear number plate manufacturers details, I don't know why they do it, they won't get to their destination any quicker and don't seem inclined to overtake the vehicle that they are following so closely.

I need to know where everyone gets all these 'facts' on so quick.

Yes, we now know more (I do, anyway). But if we had the likes of the above stand in as judge, court cases would not even get to the defence..

I'm smart enough to understand that a car can flip doing 50mph. many factors could make this happen.

However, yes it's very likely. but my point is more about how most people will jump in with their own conclusions, based on a picture.

I too have witnessed this car several times driving erratically. Earlier that day he whellspan out onto dorchester road nearly missing oncoming traffic and left a stream of smoke from his tyres and black marks on the road!

Was only a matter of time!
More than likely had brown marks in his pants too after his latest monumental balls-up! LOL.

what a lemon you are.

2 people on here have allegedly seen him wheel spinning.

and your obsession with the word idiot is rather worrying.

As for telling to me to shut up... awwww, we have a big boy ;)
Lemon? Perhaps if you have experienced the bereavement of a loved family member due to the irresponsible actions of dangerous drivers you might appreciate how grossly insensitive and naive you are.
no one was hurt in this story, so suggesting I'm insensitive shows a few things:

1) you must forget many of my posts

2) you're naïve (or dumb)

3) you should be called Mr Irreverent (for multiple reasons)
1/To be fair considering the absolute tripe you come up with the majority of the time, your contributions are generally ignored by most anyway. Backed up by the consensus of down votes you acquire on a regular basis.
2/Correction, it is actually spelt naive! If you bothered to study at school you might had learnt something useful. Back to school for you!
3/Irreverent? talk about kettle black, rather pathetic and ironic since that was the very point I was making about your insensitivity and lack of emotional intelligence. In particular, the lack of respect for the many innocent victims injured or killed by the very type of idiot drivers you evidently are so keen to defend.
Whilst writing sentences including bullet points usually start with capital letters providing clarity as to who the real dumb ar$e here is!

You're not particularly street wise are you? Nissan skyline with a redicilous fog horn exhaust and ultra wide wheels on its roof in a 50mph restricted speed limit area. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out the bleeding obvious, why would you even want to defend irresponsible reckless driving that puts other innocent people at risk is beyond all reasonable comprehension.
street wise? lol

I'm smart enough to understand that a car can flip doing 50mph. many factors could make this happen.

However, yes it's very likely. but my point is more about how most people will jump in with their own conclusions, based on a picture.
You're not the smartest knife in the top draw are you? Which part of the article's explanation that the car flipped coming off a roundabout don't you understand.
If one is sensible and applies the Highway Code correctly by driving to the speed limit and prevailing road conditions there is absolutely no justifiable reason any vehicle would flip on a roundabout. It's clearly rubbish driving/vehicle control combined with excessive speed full stop!

The speed restriction is irrelevant! I have personally had to deal with RTC's at a lot slower speed than 50MPH and through driver error, not a driver driving recklessly.
elloello1980 is, in my opinion passing comment on the first few judgemental comments on here, to many people are to quick to pass judgement without knowing the true facts. It happens a lot on here.
As for wide wheels and big 'fog horn' exhaust again totally irrelevant, you can do that to any car, it doesn't make it go any faster!
Yes it has come to light that this person has been witnessed driving recklessly.
So I have to agree with elloello1980, there are judgemental people on here, which is what his initial comments was about and he has already admitted that we now have more facts from various people.

Well, fortunately i think you'll find the police will take a similarly dim view of anybody who manages to flip a car in this manner.
I was going on nothing else but what the Echo reported, at the time.

I need to know where everyone gets all these 'facts' on so quick.

Yes, we now know more (I do, anyway). But if we had the likes of the above stand in as judge, court cases would not even get to the defence..
It's called "probability". Believe it or not, that's exactly what a judge works to in most cases too. He hears two stories and decides which is most likely true based on (i) a few facts and (ii) his own experience and internal compass.
1. It was not raining on Wednesday night, therefore the road was not slippery
2. Cars do not normally flip onto their roof in Weymouth, therefore this car was doing something abnormal
3. Other people have commented on here that this car is often seen to drive "erratically"
4. It has clearly been tarted up to look like a racing car, and as we know, most people who drive cars dressed up like this drive dangerously
I think we can pretty certain that this man (look, another assumption based on long standing statistics) was driving dangerously.
