Well done John and Co. If you're helping the Police out down there then you will need either the IOW version of the Highway Code or a remotely controlled turret mounted machine gun. This to sort out the shocking driving on the Island. This week I've seen -

2 off - Delibrately jumping of a red traffic signal.
2 off - Overtaking (me) in a 30, when I was doing 30.
1 off - Very near miss (not me, I was behind) cause by total careless driving. This had me standing on the brakes even though I wasn't at risk.
1 off - Being forced to reverse round a blind bend by a person {heavily censored description} who absolutely refused to give way even though I had right of way. They then drove off without saying thanks.
Upteen tailgating, even in heavy rail, even though Warrior was risking aquaplaning.

Use the wreckage from you slaying activities to shore up those crumbling cliffs!!!

Another issue with the IOW highway code is that yellow lines are there to make the roads look pretty. They are, on no account, anything to do with parking restrictions!! Meeting with John this evening to discuss battle plans.
