    Lack Of Road Safety Strategy...

    That’s what I was trying to get at. Rather than bringing in new restrictions, enforce existing legislation and use the maximum fines/penalties available. Do that and it would be self financing, at least for the first year or two until the message gets through.

    Lack Of Road Safety Strategy...

    Seems to me the road safety strategy is basically going to be to reduce or introduce speed limits. Over the last ten or more years, a lot of speed limits have been brought in. Is there any info on wether these have brought down accidents? How about hammering drivers overtaking on double white lines, talking/texting on mobiles, blasting through existing speed limits. See how much that improves things over a year or so. Let’s face it, idiots are going to do all the above anyway, so what difference is a lower number on a road sign going to make? It’s lack of a deterrent at the moment that’s making things dangerous, not lack of a national speed limit.

    Was the sailing rough? They seem to lower the temperature if it is, less people chucking up.

    Fair enough. But that was admitted in a staff meeting.

    Hosepipe ban

    Heading towards the thick end of 50%. And they’re reasonably happy with that figure.

    £104k to spend a penny?

    Listening to the interview on MR with Richie McNichol, what really pissed me off was the reason the old toilets (which are still there but locked off) were shut was no disabled access. So if disabled can’t use the toilet then nobody can. Bloody ridiculous. Keep them open until new ones are built but don’t stop everyone using them. He then blustered on a bit about flooding in certain tide conditions.
