It's been fairly accident free for a while, I thought that the argus had stoped reporting them.

Well im glad the SWA reported it,so that our useless MP's/Am's that stay quiet regarding this vital corridor into Wales will see that the relief Motorway cannot await another 20 yrs ! They should keep on and on in that useless debating chamber in WG !
I also think we should have signs saying ' beware of BAD or MAD drivers ' when you come off the Severn crossing into Wales and from Cardiff another sign saying ' beware of BADor MAD drivers ' for those coming into Newport !
