    I bet he won't get charged with dangerous driving and that it'll be reduced to careless driving on instructions of Crown Prosecutors.

    Having seen the younger kids there, riding bikes across a busy A4 and causing drivers to swerve to avoid them and then stick their fingers up at the drivers, shows the level of brains the local kids have hanging out in the Broadway in the evenings. This then becomes worse as they get older and have cars . I went into Thatcham at lunchtime on Saturday and was like a morgue , as the food shops hadn't opened and there is nothing else other than betting shops now. Such a bleak future, Thatcham as a community village is becoming.

    So that's another unruly young driver off the roads for a while. A driving test to retake and a huge insurance bill to pay for many years ahead. Pity about his mates who, no doubt encouraged his stupid actions! They'll probably get off Scott Free!
