Transcript 

Man 2 – “There was a decent pile of gravel in the middle of the intersection and I ended up just skidding out and making a bit of a mess. Manhole covers – I hate them. You just slide everywhere and it’s a mess. White line – I’ve had one accident caused by white lines. Tired to brake on a while line and yep – that didn’t work.”
