Safety wear for cyclists

Postby grufty » 7 Oct 2019, 10:57am

Mrs Grufty saw an ad on Facebook this morning for an item that "helps thousands of British cyclists avoid getting hit by a car".
Now where have I previously seen a uniform with arrows?

Please report lying adverts at https://www.asa.org.uk/make-a-complaint.html but it's a game of whackamole.

Don’t think that’s a good idea, might encourage them to drive even closer ;-)

Is that the one advertising a service for a motorcycle outrider escort carrying a pillion with a machine gun? :twisted:

I saw a vehicle for wheelchair users, a sticker on the back asked to leave 2 m for the ramp, I guess the mortons think they may follow 2 m behind :?
