Car smashes through back garden fence

The Argus: Picture from Sussex Police Picture from Sussex Police

A car crashed through the fence of a back garden following a late-night crash.

The Vauxhall Corsa was travelling along the A27 in Lancing in a 40mph zone near Manor Road when it veered off the road and smashed through a fence and coming to rest in the back garden.

Firefighters had to cut free the man from the car and he was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton suffering from head injuries.

The incident happened at just after 10.50pm last night.

A Sussex Police spokeswoman said it was not though that his injuries were life threatening.

The spokeswoman added: “The car crashed through a local resident’s fence coming to resident in the rear garden.

“The driver was cut from the vehicle by the fire brigade and taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital to be treated for a head injury.”

I might as well stick one in for the attention of the pedestrian hating people that seem to inhabit this website. It all ties in. You're good at bashing the local Greens, but don't you think you've serious questions to answer to the wider public with your attitude that encourages bad motoring and deters the authorities from effective enforcement? From your attitude, you must be the same sort of people who:

1 get to know exactly where all the speed cameras are, and then speed up between them.

2 habitually drive within legal stopping distances, even if you're not quite tailgating (though you might do that as well).

3 sit around in pubs and restaurants bragging about your 'motoring exploits' in male bonding sessions (very sad if you do this - don't you have another hobby?)

So, ROLL ON 2015. Only another 1,700 people will definitely have died on the roads as a direct consequence of your bigotry. It is sad that all of the main political parties see people like you as an important client group, and don't want to upset you, except for the local Greens. I am a motorist myself, but would happily vote for the Greens all the way, more so if they could put 20mph zones on motorways, for no practical purpose other than to wind you up. You might like to read:

If you can be bothered to type this in and then scroll all the way down to 'Backbench Business', and then look at several pages afterwards, you will discover the distress that your attitude causes to the public at large. It's not recommended reading if you've just had your dinner. The contributions from some of the Tories are just gut wrenching, while the contributions from Ian Austin (who called for better enforcement), Julie Hillilng (who notes the rebellious attitude of motoring culture that has been allowed to become mainstream, and is so prevalent in the attitudes of some of the contributors on this website), and James Duddridge (who called for a joined up approach to tackle the excesses of motoring culture)all strike a chord with me.

Even though the House of Commons has just had this debate, nothing is going to result from it, because the sensibilities of too many people like yourselves must not be upset.

Once again, ROLL ON 2015. Only another 1,700 deaths (or thereabouts) to go.

Thanks for pointing this one out to me. There is no point in arguing with the substance of the article. But it is an open secret that the Daily Mail specialise in character assassination to make itself worthwhile. Thanks to the internet, you can now draw on better sources with ease. I don't care much for Alan Sugar, but I like what he said about Paul Dacre from the Daily Mail: 'Paul Dacre is a dog, and if you lie down with dogs, you get fleas'.

I am happy to accept that the Green Party is on a learning curve (aren't we all?) I take to the main roads most days, and I am mindful that 1,700 deaths don't come from nowhere. Ideally, Westminster politicians should be putting their heads together to deal with this, but if the Brighton Greens nit-picking over slow moving traffic is the best that we have, then so be it.

The reason the greens put in the 20mph zone is as they say reduce pollution but in fact its doing the opposite, the only way to stop deaths my vehicle accidents is to ban all vehicles and that is not going to happen as much as you greens will love that!
are we going back in time to the old ages? soon we see more horse and carts roaming around! and what if and when they start causing deaths will you want to ban them? most likely not as you greens will say there is no pollution and the most green!.

I've no issue with car culture as such, except that there are some aspects that need moderating (as do many things in life). Take that pr1ck who's just presented himself on here doing 71mph in Elm Grove. The values of that man are such that he will cane his car and tailgate everyone on the A23.

Accidents do happen, but it is the job of authorities to manage and moderate life's risks for the benefit of their citizens. This seems to be the basis of many of life's political issues - not just motoring.

One mismatch that is apparent, is that motorists make the mistake of interpreting a driving licence as a 'freedom'. Perhaps you can't blame them, because for many of us, it is the most significant one of life's exams that many of us have passed. However, from the point of view of Parking Wardens, Roads Police and road safety authorities generally, the road network is just their workplace, and motorists, pedestrians and cyclists are just a feature of their responsibilities. I used to work as a Parking Warden, and although I accept that there are differences between these roles and the different standards of education needed for each role, they do all have this in common. I've seen enough, that I chose to leave and look for something else.
