Sorry, don't know if this has been posted previously but thought it deserved a posting. Looks a pretty full-on crash! There is a photo of the driver being arrested. Reassuringly...

    This has been posted here before. DO we really need to see photos of the damage that cars can do to cyclists? Aren't we all fairly aware of this? :roll:

    It is a fairpoint, but I think the clue is also in the title. No one forced you to look at the photo, and why censor what everyone else can view? That would make you a bit of a Mary Whitehouse type really

    I am on Facebook, but I tend to avoid the groups. People seem to make it all too political nowadays. Since this is a cycling forum, thought it might be appropriate.

    Cycling is a sport, bit of a past-time. The way some people bleat on here, you would think it was a rites of passage and actually doing it, deserved some great badge of honour. Nice to keep things in perspective...

    If you think people bleat on here, then why be on here ?. Its a forum, everyone has a voice and an opinion.
    The photo you posted has been on here before, just think its quite morbid, but some folks have a fascination with grim stuff, graphic images and the like. I think the point the others were making is that we've seen it and once was enough.
