Don't know if there has ever been a thread on this, but while it may not match the music thread, there must be a lot of stuff that pisses us off and needs an outlet, maybe? Here are a couple of road based ones. Lorries should not be allowed in lane three of four lane motorways. Two lanes is enough. Lorry drivers should enable their fellows to overtake quicker, by easing off a fraction, instead of taking minutes on end, thereby blocking the dual carriageway. All drivers need to remember their cars have indicators, for a reason. Urban speed restrictions are not there for you to roar around at high revs in low gear. Quad bikes on public roads should be banned.
Insanely loud motorbikes / mopeds banned - absolute willy wagging machines. Cannot think of a single positive thing about these loud bastards - disrupt local areas with their droning noise, hearing them from miles around, usually ridden by struggled-to-grow-a-pubey moustache teenagers or sad little men who can't get attention elsewhere. I'm also going to assume they cause accidents, whether that's through their volume surprising pedestrians or distracting other motorists.
In summary: dangerous, annoying, disruptive, ugly machines that should be melted down and made into prison bars to house the floppy wet wipes that ride them. Get in the bin.
E-scooters are still illegal and should be treated as such. And they should never become legal anywhere on public roads or footpaths.
Agreed. I'm going to tag on adults who ride standard scooters too. As someone who works every day in London (pre-mandatory working from home), adult men and women who use scooters on (unsurprisingly) busy footpaths have a special place in hell reserved for them.
They’ve just spent a fortune repainting the bus station, but there is tons of litter below near the river Len.
I know it’s the job of the Mall/Council/Sainsbury’s, but people of Maidstone, don’t be disgusting pigs.
Saw a group of teenagers munching their takeaway meals by the cannon last week, they all left their polystyrene containers on the floor an walked away with a bin located less than 10 yards away. Do we really want to save the planet for these morons.
The amount of litter around every motorway junction - at least a quarter of a mile in every direction- suggests far too many drivers think it is ok to lob their waste out of the window. Farmers have been busy with the flails, trimming verges and hedgerows, of late. Trouble is, it just exposes the accumulated waste that has been gathering there since the autumn. You'd hope there would be a bit of coordination somehow to get it picked up afterwards, before the next storm (which should begin with F, so my vote goes for Fuckwit) blows it over the rest of the countryside. How about all those tossers we see on Police Interceptors having to do it as their 'unpaid work' for driving without a licence, uninsured, etc, etc? And if you lie to a policeman, the hours get doubled.
