TWO men are believed to have escaped a serious car crash without suffering major injuries.

The 4x4 they were travelling in flipped over at about 7.30pm yesterday (Sunday) in Barclay Road, but witnesses said both men walked out and "seemed fine".

An ambulance attended and one of the men was taken away on a stretcher but was conscious and "looked ok".

A spokeswoman for the London Ambulance Service said: "We were called at about 7.15pm to reports of a road traffic collision.

"We sent one ambulance crew and a man in his 30s was taken as a priority to Whipps Cross University Hospital.

"His condition is not life-threatening."

These side roads are dangerous and a 20 MPH limit should be the norm here.

Traffic calming measures like speed humps and chicanes are a must to slow the traffic.

Note the 'speed hump' in the foreground in the picture, hit one too fast and this is the result.

Not clearly marked I agree but maybe the should be made higher and this was a 4x4x4x4x2?

The hump shown in the picture is the newest and recently adopted version of speed calming width-to-width hump which council is replacing the original crested styles - which did slow traffic.It is little more than a resemblance of a flat chested female than a full breasted version. So what is the council's reasoning behind this alteration in style because they haven't explained it, nor have the Guardian observed the changes across the borough and sought answers.
ps If you really want some old fashioned real Humps then go to Hatherley Road.

The new humps are "sinusoidal" and are known as "cushions" not humps. The idea is that the car goes fully up then fully down, which should be less damaging to the car, less painful to the passengers (as a disabled person I notice every jolt) and yet make the traffic slow. The traffic department of LBWF can give you more information if you are interested.

I agree these humps are more gentle but still a nuisance to negotiate. Drivers should go at a safe speed for the road and conditions, and this is the problem. I've seen people swerving around humps (into cycle paths etc) to continue at speed, and this is more dangerous than letting them go unhindered in a straight line, in my opinion.

If people bothered to observe speed limits and road saftey then we would not have to have spped humps etc at the cost of the tax payer and councils. The likely hood of this ever happening though is zero becasue the answer is not put in more saftey measures beacsue there will always be the idiot who is driving who takes no care.
