If you’ve gone to the trouble of paying for and setting up a proper domain name, then why not use it for your emails as well?

Lack of lights in Spray

May 26th, 2006 No comments

I’ve just driven down the M6 in heavy rain and surface spray and it is amazing how many people consider side-lights to be sufficient to be seen. What’s totally unbelievable, however, is how many people have no lights on whatsoever, making them virtually invisible!

As John Keats once wrote, it is the Season of Mists and Mellow Fruitfulness.

Yes, autumn is upon us, and today we had the first real spell of fog.

On the one hand you have the beauty of looking down from higher ground at the sun shining across the fog blanketing the lower lying ground, but on the other you have the idiots who don’t know how to drive in the fog.

I cannot believe the number of people driving with no lights at all. Are these people stupid?

At the other end of the scale you have the people who, at the slightest sign of mist, switch their rear fog lights on and dazzle all who follow, blotting out any hope of seeing their brake lights. Strangely, these people also tend to keep driving at 70-80mph on the motorway, presumably believing that by flicking that little switch they are protected, but resulting in a motorway pileup.

No doubt, on the drive home this evening, the fog will be gone, but these same drivers will still have their fog lights on from this morning.

Behaviour at Speed Cameras

September 8th, 2004 No comments

Why do people slow down to 40mph to pass a speed camera in a 50mph limit?
Don’t they trust their speedometers? Do they think they’ll get done for 48mph? or maybe they simply have no idea what the limit is.
