SPEED makes your life SHORT !!
Young gents please don't speed up on the roads. They are not race tracks !! Even after this yesterday I saw 2 cars racing atleast at 120km/h on baseline road. I praid them to die before they hit any innocent man or vehicle on the road. May they hit walls !!

This is not the place for a person of this calibre to be. Hope he will be recognised duly in Heaven.

This is in appropriate Wassim was always a careful driver... a good guy... a great rugby player.. his only thrill was to speed away with an oval shaped ball in his hand.

So are you an expert on Hybrid cars? What make of hybrid would you be commenting on? If it is a Toyota Prius you are out of your mind. Prius is one of the most advanced hybrids on the market, Gen2/3 have some of the highest levels of safety features ever. Besides the comment is not appropriate for the subject, it's a tragic accident not motoring discussion!

Was it a Hybrid car?...because Hybrid cars are likely to catch fire in the event of a head on collision.
