True. I dont get why other people on this forum/thread "pretend" they have never driven fast.

I am not addicted to speed and forums members here knows that. I like driving fast but under limits. If 90kmph is limit i drive at 90!

Rest there is no limit at WOM so let your inner beast unleash there

I can very well accept that I have driven fast... really fast. I like speed too.

But I have never driven fast through a wet road, at night with no seatbelts on. No... not me. I think the point of discussion here is not 'driving fast'.

Yes, the discussion here is not about driving fast. Its about being stupid.
Again, its a thin line between stupid and fast.

First and foremost, respect OTHERS' lives. Nobody here is bothered about YOU. Really. Your stupidity shouldn't put ANOTHER family to misery.
Then, know your limits. Know your ride's limits. All these will put you on the correct side of that VERY THIN line.

Happy driving.

+ one to this. We all care for our lives on this forum and respect other's lives too. Living by killing someone is a strict no no. I would rather die than to live with the guilt of having killed someone under my car

To all u guys..Clevermax...Amtak..Kuttapan :

I'm not boasting about myself here plz nor Skoda..I just honestly feel Skoda is a very safe car from my experience and definitely my next car would also be a Skoda only but that does not mean i'm gonna crash my car or drive it at insane speeds unnecessarily again..I am addicted to speed, i accept it and i know a lot of guys in this forum are too..And mind you accidents happen at lower speeds as well (like my first vehicle was an esteem and it was banged by a bus driver on the rear door with no fault of mine)...still i would not want to justify my action but just letting people know in this forum how safe Skoda is and people should buy it atleast for its good safety features..I in no way want people to drive like me to harm themselves or others .
Accidents are not experiences my friend. If they were experiences, people would have tried their best to gain some more experience by crashing cars. Accidents happen because of errors; either man's or machines'. Skoda might be making strong cars but your luck was stronger that day; Else you would have been a with damaged/mangled body parts. I seriously hope that you learn something from your "experience" and calm down. There's a difference between driving FAST and driving RECKLESSLY. You are in the second category.

Money might get you/your family another car. It cannot buy you the pleasure of living in one piece.

Just my two cents. Sorry for going off topic here everyone.

PS: No hard feelings.

How about people, full of the false confidence of youth, who were never taught proper and safe driving technique in the first place, driving fast?

Anything in the papers with regards to this ? My colleagues must see this. I drop many at Madivala to KPN office on weekends. That amount of blood is pretty disturbing. RIP!!

I think this is the same as rjstyles said a few posts before. Guess that truck driver came onto the highway from the intersection and the fast Volvo had no chance.

The scene Looks ghastly

This Volvo crash is really a horrendous scene. How fate changes in a second nobody knows. Many of passenger would have been going for home or leisure travel and this is what written in their fate.

RIP.
