In France to see Le Tour this year, I saw a local youth doing just that -- he rode smack into the back of a scooter that had stopped at a red light. Prat.

On the theme of common motoring offenses, even here in small town England I can guarantee that 10% of motorists cannot be bothered to wear a seat belt. That is an enormous figure if it is representative of the whole of the country.

Support your local sheriff, or to be more precise, your local Police and Crime Commissioner. They have a lot of influence over policy in things like policing priorities. Having been elected on such pitifully low turnouts, they must be glad to get support from anybody. :lol:
