'Trapped in car dependency'

... conditioned by Governments to get the most from us at the expense of happiness and contentment.

Re: Police numbers

I wonder how long it'll be before the fire services go back to being owned by insurance companies?

Re: What did you do to your bike today ??

And who’s definition of “grown up” is he using??

My definition is getting a big boy job and being able to afford a nice bike (lol)

Doesn’t sound overly grown up to get angry with a road user that is going to have absolutely no effect on your trip.

At the risk of being repetitive, I still believe that compulsory re-testing should be mandatory for our entire driving lives.

Re: What do you want to vent about today?

My paternal nan passed away soon after my grandfather went, even though there was nothing wrong with her apart from being old. She really did miss him. I really do think people can reach an age where you can decide to call it a day.
