    They just don't build them like they used to.

    Portugese drivers that is. When I lived in Italy. I saw a moto rider on the A2 from Napoli to Rome get wraped around the rear dual wheel of a trailer. Nothing but flesh, and Ducati parts wraped around the axle. He was going at least 240Kmh when he passed me. I was going 180 Kmh ( Cruising Speed) . Northbound in my Alfa. It looked like a sweet 999 as it flew by.

    This ended up on our g20 forum today. there are a few that think the accident is a set-up. It has been pointed out that there is no glass, and the ground around the scene seems to be undisturbed by the car and it pieces that were dislodged during the accident. If it is real or not, it would have been a wicked crash and a good speeding deterrent.

    That is pretty darn real. There aren't always clear indicators for what happened in photos like this. As far as the glass, the rear window is intact and the windsheild will come off in one piece. The two or four pass. windows don't leave much glass to be seen in a shaded area. Why bother faking this?

    I never said I thought it was fake. That is just the word elsewhere. I can see an ad agency faking this accident to make a public awareness advertisement. That scene scares the crap out of me. those photos would make me think about my driving habits if i did not already have the sense not to drive my car beyond its limits.
