A few days ago I saw a bent car at the side of the M3 and a little further along a bend in the central crash barrier where the car had bounced and fortunately stayed on the other side of the road. Tonight there was a 4 car crash a short way ahead of me. it didn't look as if anyone was hurt seriously but there were 2 cars left in the fast lane and 2 others at the side of the road. At the moment I do 100 miles a day - mostly on the M3.
M-way barrier, Bright, white - shiny new metal. Yesterday it bent.
Twisted, misshapen, Curved towards my fast lane Reflecting a car.
Hard shoulder parking. A driver reflecting on Man’s fragility.
Crumpled crumple zone. Engine seeing setting sun light in my eyes blinds.
