The three male victims were all in the minicar,

These K-cars should be banned! They are just death trap on wheels. Even in a minor collision they fold up like an aluminium can and can cause serious injury to the occupants. Gawd help anybody that hits anything at speed in one of these toy cars. This is the reason many countries won't import them. They have no side impact protection or crumple zones and fail to meet the safety standards. I'm always astonished by families who buy them as a cheap runaround for mum and the kids. I wouldn't put my kids in one, ever!

That's why I'm sticking to my Toyota Auris... (although my son says it would be cheaper to run a smaller K-car...)

Then all roads have to be widened. K-cars are very convenient for narrow roads and parking.

It's so easy, isn't it - one minute you're driving along in your car with your mates/colleagues - napping or chatting or smoking or humming along to the song on the radio, the next minute, you and your plans for all your future have been extinguished. Gone.

Rest in peace.

I don't have a K-car nor do I have trouble negotiating the narrow roads or parking. Perhaps your comment should have been, "People need to learn how to drive!"

Yeah, K-cars are cheap to run, but how much is your family's life worth to you?

You have obviously never been on the narrow roads I have been on in the countryside. Your car would be stuck in the gutter if you dared to drive down them. I can go out the door now, measure the road width then tell you if you don't believe me.
