Big Bro', Cunniving C***s and Dirty Dealers...
That was cunniving chaps btw ;-)
Everyone has said everything of worth really, only read half the thread but it all seems to be covered. The Reginistas know what time it is, make no mistake mister.
Basically another tracking device.
Good drivers will see no benefit from being good little boys.
Bad naughty drivers will be hard-slapped come next Insurance day.
Really naughty drivers that do 'jobs' will revert back to Sweeney type Ford Granadas, gov.
Me, I will still dice with death getting a loaf of freeking bread. No pavement - walls 14 foot high - try jumping over them Mr.High-Jumper when trouble comes your way.
Oh it is safe enough when no traffic on the road, but to be caught in a game of semi-chicken between the driver behind you and the driver oncoming - I feel like a virtual 3d prop in Carmageddon.
I have already told my Mother that I think this might be how I die. I need to get my act together a bit more and find out what the actual death statistics are for this particular stretch.
Little kiddies - hundreds of them use it every day as they come back from school. (Or maybe just tens of them - I don't stand on the corner counting them)..
Those little car driving fuckers will speed past me walking at thirty miles an hour no problems if it means getting in on the one in front. I mean literally inches - a foot - 12 inches if you didn't know. This is at THIRTY MILES A FUCKING HOUR. If they ever catch me and don't kill me, I will get up and beat the living fucking daylights out of them where they stand: saying: 'ooh are you alright - I didn't see you'.
Had a member of the family killed in a RTA nearly a century ago. Repercussions still felt today.
It wasn't the drivers fault in that particular case.
One disabled driver clipped me by about three inches. When I say clipped, I don't mean he hit me, but I felt his wind. I followed him up the road and nearly caught him. I would have dragged that son of a bitch out of his car and dealt with the consequences later - but he just drove off.....
This road is deadly. Car drivers are fucking pricks if you ask me. I know you are not all the same - some of you even slow right down, give me a 3-4 foot birth on a (quite wide as it goes) road. Why skim me when you can avoid me by 7-8 feet? Most times there is just one car coming along. I am either going to be killed or will commit murder on this road. But I bet it won't be me - it will be a schoolchild. Then they might do something.
And don't start me off on the boy racers. You know what? They are ok - because they are going fast and give a wide berth. I would rather they miss me by 6 foot at 70Mph, than some numpty hitting me at 20Mph coz they want to get to the shop and they don't want to slow down because I am in their way. How inconvenient.
My brown paper bag is wet with all these exhalations. I just wanted to show it is not all about speed. If I am killed on that road, or god forbid a junior school child, it will be at 20-30-mph.
Well within the speed limit, your honour.
