Default Rant

Visiting our fiends in Newquay , Wales we come over at least a dozen times in a year 90% on the bike but weather as it is we came over in the car . Every time we come over we get the same thing when a car lorry or tractor has got more than 20 to 30 vehicles behind them why don't they pull over . When I'm on the bike I'm not bothered it's not long before I'm at the front and past but come on it's called respect !!!!!

If you park your car in Wales some yobbo will kick the mirrors off, that's why you get long tailbacks..nobody can see behind them.

The highway code - "Do not hold up a long queue of traffic, especially if you are driving a large or slow-moving vehicle.

Check your mirrors frequently, and if necessary, pull in where it is safe and let traffic pass."

In other words, pull over if an unreasonable number of vehicles are being held up...

If that's the New Quay near Aberaeron you were under twenty miles for Kingo.

Nearly eighty from me but you probably came within ten miles of me on your way home..

Small world.

The standards of driving significantly dropped when speed camera came in.... People know now they can get away with driving like an idiot!

Yeah I'm having a bit of trouble with that one, people may find out where the cameras are and speed up between them but the plod is still out there on the road in marked and unmarked cars.

Not many of them! Years ago when I worked for plod I had a jolly in a traffic car and even then the traffic boys were complaining that the only time they got on the road was to or from an incident, or going to take statements from people who'd been involved in an incident!

Most probably caused by inconsiderable slow vehicles winding up the people sitting in the que behind them . The time for speed is for a track I no that ,I drive a restricted vehicle for work mostly 10 mph under the speed limit and alway pull over when I no a que is forming . But I've never seen a police man pull over a slow vehicle .worst of it I've had a rant at my brother who is a traffic officer and he says it's not worth the hassle and if it was contested its usually dropped ,gutted !!!!

Just for you then, a 'jolly' was - and probably is - the term for a trip to another department or in some form of transport (Police launch for instance, that was great!) which is intended to give people from one department a greater understanding of how another department works, but in fact is enjoyable just as a trip out of the office!
