  • OMG - I cannot believe what I have just seen!

    Whilst driving round the Fosse Park roundabout in Leicester - (for those of you who do not know it, it is a huge roundabout, with about 5 main dual carriage ways going onto it - 2 from the main motorways and one from one of the largest retail parks in the area) - what did I see?

    An open top VW Beetle with 5 little children in the back, all standing on the back seat dancing to the loud music blaring from the speakers - as the car pulled off at the lights ( at great speed)) one of the children fell over - thankfully landing in the car.

    I do wish I had had my camera an d a pen and paper at the ready.

    Good grief it makes your blood run cold. Have some people lost the sense they were born with? I just hope all the kids belonged to the driver of the car - I'd hate to think he/she was running that sort of risk with their own kids, but let alone someone elses.

      My god that is awful. You cannot believe what people do and what they must be thinking. Hopefully they all have a better role model in their lives.

        Is there not a traffic camera pointed at the roundabout? They might be on there!

          I do hope so, but with all the cut backs, many cameras do not have films in them:-(

            I know exactly where you mean and I might tell you all that that roundabout terrifies me. It is so big that there are traffic lights which actually stop you on the way round it. If I'm not going to Fosse Park I slide into the service road going up Narborough Road.

              Around here, they don't have film, it records like a video camera and transmits it to...wherever...and the record of traffic during a certain time frame is kept a specific length of time, but not forever. SO, if you tell them ASAP what time you saw this person driving with unrestrained kids, they might still be able to see it on video. One can hope.

                  I agree with Susan on this. tell them anyway with as much info as you can then maybe theycan playback the film to find them. that sort of junction will have traffic cams as well as speed cameras.

                      The other week we saw a similar thing with a man driving a convertible with his little girl in the back, no seatbelt, roof down and the girl kind of hanging over the side of the car. That was Coventry... maybe it's a Midlands thing.
