I asked J whether his Daily Mail-reading-pensioner-dad , who was caught speeding, has taken a course for ‘bad drivers’ and I am pleased to say that he now has.
I didn’t get much info out of it other than he thought that ‘it was complete a waste of time’ and that it ‘was patronising’.
(Personally I think it is hilarious to see a grown man, who thinks he can drive, do the course). I wonder if he was surrounded by teenage yobs too, all the ‘sorts of people’ a Daily Mail reader, wouldn’t want to mix with.
Now it turns out that these speed cameras have unleashed ‘an OAP Captain Gatso’ – he said that he wants to shoot them down with airgun.
Naturally this was alarming particularly as he keeps mentioning it.
I asked J if he possesses an airgun. He said no.
I said let me know when he does.
I did say that some lawless motorists who attack speed cameras are actually caught have to pay for the damage. I also said that these speed cameras are very expensive and the thugs will have to pay for the damage. Police are now having special CCTV cameras only monitoring anti-social behaviour.
On the bright side, he hasn’t been caught speeding since.
