Bus crash in Seaburn, Sunderland this morning. Apparently the brakes failed so the driver had two options: crash into houses or crash through a wooden fence into Seaburn Park. Fortunately he took the second option but clipped a Merc coming the other way. Bus driver & Merc driver along with all the passengers on the bus are OK.

Google linky.

Thanks for sharing, have been trying to locate my grandfathers old house (when Breslau was still German) in Opperau for quite some time now, have two objects that might come into question. The last time I was there was in 1994, and it changed quite a bit since then.

Guess I have to talk to grandma to see if she remembers which number it had.

Anyhow, thanks for sharing, brings back childhood memories.

Some roads are called death roads, well here's a load of tombstones lost on the A32 motorway in the Netherlands.

In some countries there's practice to put tombstones almost at the edge of the road, where someone died...

Indeed. In NL it's usually crosses with flowers. (Luckily) these are the only 2 I know. Click. Click.

Also in Italy is popular. I once saw 4 or 5 of them in 15km of national road... no a good sign. But it's because they're left there for decades. Most times is just a bunch of plastic flowers.

You officially need a municipal permit for that in the Netherlands. Flowers are OK, but if you want to erect some kind of memorial (small or large), you need a permit.

In Bulgaria they are more of this type. They need also municipal permit, but actually nobody observes it and therefore they are (almost 100% of them) illegal.

The Netherlands is overmanaged in some way. Even nearly all of our nature is managed. Most nature areas are developed and maintained by the government. There's hardly an original nature over here. Public spaces are generally well-maintained as well. It's amazing to read what kind of things tax money is spent on, especially on municipal and provincial level. Just a few days ago I've read about a multi-hundred thousand euro project in Flevoland provinces that provides flowered sides of agricultural land.

And as far as I have seen, in Greece relatives of deceased in fatal crashes install these near the road, at the place of the incident. There are few on Bulgarian roads too, especially on E79 leading to Greece, I remember one near Dolna Dikanya for example.

I also saw crosses no Romanian roads, most where plain simple ones. But it's scary, if there are many, you think you are driving on a death road.
Also, I saw this in Golubac foretress, flowers on the stairs:
