Re: Why do I bother raising my blood pressure?

Re: So it's the road that's dangerous, not the users ?!!

I did a tractor test when I was 16, in 1996, it was pretty much what the 1965 driving test sounds like. A couple of laps around a small hamlet, an emergency stop, reversing into a gateway, all without a trailer or any implement on the back, not even sure it was a legal requirement to have passed it....

Re: Pavement parking

Not just fines, the 'Don't Park Here' stamping hammer should be used once for the first offence, twice for the second...and so on. This way it inconveniences the people who can afford the fines too easily.
