    Thats sick.

    How would you feel, if a member of your family had died in a crash.....and the locals "went for a look"

    Seriously.....go have a think about it.

    Lol

    First of all your the only person who says someone has died, do you have a source for that information as i'm unable to find anything.

    There are many incidents on our roads daily very few of them involve people dying in fact the worst one that i've seen in terms of the effect it had on traffic and delays was when a lorry jack knifed then went onto it's side. The driver was uninjured but my god did that cause a traffic jam.

    So maybe have a think before you accuse me of going to look at dead people for fun thatis a sick accusation and you can really offend someone if you go around speaking before you have a chance to think about what you're saying.

    I have seen plenty of dead people by the way and it's none to pleasant I can assure you of that, certainly not something that I would go and look at for fun.

    Secondly as with all RTA's our emergencies are on the scene pretty quick and one of the first things they do is clear the area of surrounding pedestrians and motorists, if there is a death they will then remove the body if possible if not they will shield it from the view of the public so even if I wanted to go and see it I wouldn't be able to. However I would be able to go down and see what the situation is.

    as my post stated....With all due respect........

    ive also seen my fair share...

    no offence meant.

    nice reply - you sound like your in the services......
