The Vigilante Movement tackling thieves


 

Now this guy has had stuff stolen from car parks so many times and he is called the Barnehurst Commando.  Very inspiring!

People are still using their mobile phones when driving


Even after all this time!

My colleague saw 4 people in one hour using their mobile phone. I saw one today and www.betterdriving.com has loads if you stick in the key words ‘phone’.

It makes you think that registration number plates ought to be put on the side of the vehicle as well so they can be reported.

I ask you.

At the police station


What I forgot to mention whilst we were reporting the numerous crimes we experienced in London, we overheard, on the other counter, that a London chinese motorist had ‘hit a woman cyclist’ in Parliament Square. (We were there earlier). On the bright side, they didn’t do a hit and run, but it is still ‘disgusting’.

I have often seen motorists speeding to the other ‘straight road’ and imagine if there was a cyclist trying to use that bend. The motorist would just kill the cyclist.
