Re: Stephen Lawrence Day

It's racism. That's the scourge. It's about difference, fear, hatred and a million and one other emotions which pollute parts of our society. I think that one portmanteau term encapsulates it. As long as Stephen Lawrence Day focuses on this, I think it is positive.

Indeed he was. But Charley Windsor, for one, would say he did not look it.

Re: Excuses excuses

Have only read half the responses, I am surprised anyone suggests slowing traffic by deliberately pressing lights whether they are crossing or not... There is nothing more frustrating as a cyclist or a motorist in slowing down for lights when there is no one crossing.... and the messing around with...

Re: Satnavs 'cause accidents'?

Cameras seem to change the behaviour of some that use them, irrespective of their chosen mode of transport.

Re: Vehicle as a murder weapon

I'm sorry but I don't understand that. Think of it this way: if there are books, newspapers, TV and similar, you learn to read and thus suck in all sorts of notions that make you do this rather than that. All technologies have similar effects on their users. They suggest you behave in certain ways ...

I now understand the words. I shall report back as to my success in explaining to the nice officer that it was my car that was the instigator of my offence and should be punished severely.

Re: Vehicle as a murder weapon

In reality, various technologies are huge amplifiers, enablers or even instigators of murderous acts. The design of the technology (inclusive of all it's intents, purposes and capabilities) will be a contributory cause of the human user's murderous act. To give an example from the (current) far end...
