Another one to hit on the head with a hammer
 
The wankers in the council offices that decided to replace every street lamp bulb in my village with fucking LED one's

The old sodium lamps would light up about four terraced house's these new fucking thing's don't light up down to the pavement let alone the road

On top of that they don't focus so they fucking dazzle you when driving but don't light up the road

You now need a torch to walk to the pub

I realise that they are cheaper to run but they could have turned off nine out of every ten sodium lamps and we would have had more light than we have now

Rant over Dai

Does yer head in dunnit, and the white light means it's hard to distinguish between a vehicle's headlights and street lighting in places too. Shite!

And the wankers that decided fitting LED running lights to near enough every new car on the market

The high level brake lights are bad enough but to put LED's on the front is fucking madness

Never mind the LEDs I hate those bloody high intensity blue lights that appear to flash when the car goes over a bump and you start to think there's a police car behind you!

Or if they're coming towards you over a summit the y just blind you whatever you do!

Fuckin new buses have all got them around here now, positioned exactly to shine into the mirrors of your average car. When I've had one behind me on these dark nights, there is no way you can see owt other than the glare, so any bike filtering past has fuck all hope of being noticed. What dip shit thought that was a good idea eh?
