The top four stories on The Northern Echo website at the moment are all car-related and all negative:
* Four-car collision causes traffic disruption
* Sneezing man rescued from burning car
* Two seriously injured after tanker and cars collide
* 118mph Police driving instructor’s speed shame (also the front page story in today's paper)
Thankfully no-one was killed in any of these incidents.
How come nobody remembers these stories when trying to decide how to get somewhere, yet they remember any story about trains being delayed?
At least when the train is delayed you get to have a chat and are given free papers and drinks.
