Me and a mate had finished golf and he was driving me home along mountain hwy. We were heading towards bayswater if you know the place on the inside lane closest to the median. We were cruising in peak hour traffic at about 75-80ish.
Then a yellow XE decides to pull out about 3 metres in front of us from the median. My mate swerves left to avoid him then right again to avoid another car and he lost control turning 90 degrees then going over the median into the oncoming traffic lane and doing a 180 so we were across 3 lanes of traffic.
Thankfully there were no cars coming or i wouldnt be writing this now.
My mate drives a big arse kingswood wagon so as soon as he swerved right again the arse just swung right around boat style.
The dude in the XE stopped and asked if we were okay then drove off.
My mate only got his license 2 weeks ago.
He was pretty shook up.
yeah thumbs up to the XE driver.
It's ok to make mistakes so long as you take responcibilty for them like he must off.
Oh well hopefully your mate will get rid of the kingswood and go get something a little more Ford.
Breathe! It's only the internet....
advanced driving course is a good idea, and yep i agree it should be compulsory (maybe funded from speed camera fines in mexico!!!)
