More infrmation about vehicle recovery at http://www.vehiclerecovery.org This playlist is a collection of still and moving videos of automobile (motor) accidents, vehicle recoveries and general incidents that happened in the Seventies, Eighties and Nineties. If you have an interest in vehicle or aircraft recovery techniques, RTA's (or as they are now called RTC's), this is the place. Most were filmed on the A3 especially the Kingston and Esher bypasses in Surrey and South London. Many vehicles ended up wrecked or written off. Some did involve injury and some were fatal, so please dont watch if you have lost loved ones in a auto crash

Background: I have been in (or around) the recovery industry most of his life, first as a recovery / breakdown driver for Cambridge Coachworks and then as MD of National Rescue. For most of that time I was too busy doing the job, to stop and film it. However, on some occasions I remembered to take the video with me and filmed 'bits' of the jobs. Some videos are over thirty years old and make interesting viewing. They give a glimpse how things were done then! Perhaps it was not always by the book because 'the book' was still being written! Also you may notice how empty the roads (including the M25 and M3) were in those days.
