A BMW X5 was bollarded at the entrance to Northbrook Street by Waterstones book shop this afternoon causing quite a storm among the bus drivers and thier horns.

The driver managed to limp the vehicle into West Street with much screeching of rubber from his front wheels now at a peculiar angle. The height of his vehicle possibly saved him from more damage occuring.

With all the roadworks and hoarding at that very location I am not surprised this happened..

Shame. Given that BMW drivers own the road, you would have thought he would have had control over the bollards. Was hs name Canute? laugh.gif

Surprised that it was the Northbrook Street bollards for a change.... They're hardly ever ram raided...

Should have been looking where they were going.
Lucky it wasn't a person that suddenly appeared in the road in front of the car.

His Canute mind set was that BMW drivers think that
Bollards
Make
Way

and traffic restrictions are only applicable to non BMW drivers.

They should nick him too as he was committing a traffic violation too presumably
ie ignoring traffic sign??
No doubt caught on camera; will we be seeing?

For some, it might be that activity that 'inspires' accidents like this.

Maybe the producers of the BBC programme Top Gear should road test various vehicles over these bollards in order to ascertain the best buy.
Personally I favour the Centurion tank , but I understand the running costs are pretty high. Failing that a Heinkel bubble car would easily fit between them , wink.gif

This just keeps getting better!

I'd love to have seen the look on the face of this idiot driver when it all happened.

Anyone got any photos of the offender and the vehicle?

Even better, anyone got photos of the cretins who still use mobiles whilst driving? Or the idiot drivers who stay in the centre lane of a motorway in breach of the highway code...

I would, but it would only be of my ear! As for lanes, I usually stay in the outside lane...often going faster than the legal limit! tongue.gif

It seems like ages since we had any bollardees.

What idiot was it this time? Yet another fool who "did not see the signs"?
