By coincidence, this morning I was driving through Bradford on yet another welfare-related trip (as you grow older, so do most of your associates) when I was nearly wiped out by a driver who ignored a STOP sign at some speed. Very slow moving traffic in both directions when a driver was able to edge out from my right to join the queue I was in and he was followed by a van that shot straight across the junction at some speed. The STOP sign is there because emerging drivers have no view to their left.
Sounds like the signs near me, police time would be well spent there, as easy as taking candy from a baby. Or more appropriately, as easy as scraping the muck off the floor of the cowshed
I am a bit confused by my own metaphors, doesn't the scum rise to the surface?
Maybe you could spend a while observing traffic there and report back?
Thanks for drifting back on course
