There have been a number of fatal road crashes that have been spoken about on our breakfast show.
The first one is the incident on the N2 last Friday when the driver of a BMW convertible was captured by a dashcam slamming into the barrier and one of the passengers thrown out, fatally injured.
The other incident took place on Saturday morning – leading to the death of a motorcyclist who was hit by a car as well as a pedestrian, who was hit by the bike.
