NOW, HOW TO GET CLIFF'S MORONS TO SEE IT?


This morning NZ time during lap 34 at The Brickyard, Scott Dixon came across a competitor sliding off the upper fence after drifting off the race line and took a wrong option, running his car over the by now lapped out of control vehicle.

It was spectacular with Dixon stepping out of a car reduced to one wheel that had slid to a halt after a 10/10 flip, riding the upper fence, flames shooting from under it and sliding on its belly to a halt on a debris littered track.

Watching in real time serious injury if not fatality was an only outcome yet stunningly neither driver was injured beyond bruising.
After having a gun to his head at a Taco Belle drive through last week SD must be wondering where number three will come from.

Testament to the massive advances in safety of tracks and cars, very few years ago it would have been one if not two dead in the cars and possibly spectators just as dead from flying debris.

So Mr Cliff and your equally stupid morons in the Police policy trough, vehicle safety has reduced the road toll, not your histrionic posturing around drink driving and speeding.
A now rising toll of dead on NZ roads is directly attributable to major increases in traffic volumes with poor policing of the more moronic drivers failing to don their bullet proof vests who need to be brought to book.
Of course that would entail a more efficient modus operandi something that would require a total rethink and greater effort from fat arses in Police HQ and their minions out on the roads.
So breath holding ain't an option.

Agree but the police have modern management in place which requires short term goals and associated measuring methods. All counter productive rubbish of course but it satisfies the model.

"took a wrong option"

Everyone's a no it all with hindsight.

Want to try that again Noel, not my words.
I heard Dixon in an after event interview admit he took a wrong option, not that he had a lot of time to choose and certainly none left to alter it, by then he was airborne!

And your proof of that is ...? I thought so, no proof, just bald faced assertion.

The roads are safer due to fewer drunken fools.

The car that Dixon was driving is designed to absorb the impact by disintegrating everything except the very small, very strong capsule that contains the driver. There is no comparison with mass produced cars.

Dear David

Speaking of morons, from just where the hell do you think all the safety features of modern day mass produced cars came?

Cornflakes packets?

Communist manifestos?

The crazed dreams of drug addled teenagers?

Watch the video in this article that compares 2 Toyota Corollas crashing into each other. One is a 2015 model and the other a 1998 model.
