The amount of people I see scrolling on their social media is ridiculous.

So the “eastern” carriageway is closed but the traffic heading the opposite way is northbound ? Someone needs a compass !

So many bad drivers don’t stick to speed limit and have no consideration for anyone else , they should look no and think ahead

My sister died at the hands of a lorry driver. He was male. His excuse in court, he always drives in the middle of the road over the bridge, and there has never been anything coming the other way. He didn't get reckless or dangerous driving.... Driving with undue care and attention. £150 fine and 6 points on his license. That's what my sister's life was worth.

FYI. Men cause more serious accidents than women.

Why do men cause more road accidents because there’s much more men drivers

Id say it was more a mixture of bad weather and heavy traffic.

Well there are a few stupid comments here. A motorcyclist died here, his family are now in mourning. Have some respect.

Ian, well said, and I completely agree, people should hold off from stupid comments about male or female drivers or a compass until they know the full situation of what has happened to this person and family.

Donna Clark I don't suppose your husband drives a black Kia ceed does he?

Why are you all trying to apportion blame to either a male or female driver? A man has died for goodness sake!! None of us know how or why the accident happened so let's just stop & think of the poor chap who's life was lost & for his family & friends. Show some respect!!

Ah yes, comments resorting to discussing the gender of those involved as opposed to the actual tragedy at hand. Nice going people, way to just boil this whole situation down to "men bad vs women bad" I am surprised none of you made it about race yet. You should all be ashamed.
