Are you objecting to the fact there are rules Kev? Or the fact that they are being changed? Personally I will be pleased when they bring back the rule that says all motor traffic has to be proceeded by a man on foot waving a red flag and shouting a warning!

I object to yet more rules where the safety of other people is being pressed onto drivers, why cant a pedestrian look up from their damned phone and look where they are going, & I have no time for cyclists other than those going to work, they at least usually obey the rules of the road and do not put their safety in my hands.

YES: these damn pedestrians can make quite a stain on one's vehicle with their awful red blood and gore. At least we could horse whip them in the good old days if they failed to show proper respect to us.

Footpath Road, Footpath road, simple enough concept to understand, now we also have bloody psyclopaths for the Lycra clad to go on, but not they still ride on the roads next to them which is even more dangerous because guess where the put the damned things.

I have to agree with you Kev, over here you have to watch out for 2 things that I donīt think you have there (or maybe you do now)
Beware of cycle paths (and psychopath's) when you are leaving supermarket car parks because a lot of them have foot and cycle paths crossing them also watch out for side streets that donīt have this sign in front, because they have the ROW and itīs pretty scary when you donīt know this and a car shoots out in front of you when you are on the main road.

Do you get upset with level crossing gates or traffic lights to stop the flow of vehicles along "their" tarmac?
Surely any self-respecting driver should be able to assess whether they are going to be hit by a 100ton train travelling at 100mph, unless of course they're too busy texting or changing radio stations?

And why do we put fences round airports? There must be some lovely walks which could go straight across the runways!

When I was a kid we used to sledge down the hill outside my house, always keeping an eye out for buses coming round the corner. No-one ever got killed, but there were one or two close calls.
And as a teenager I cycled much of the length of the A1: would I do it now (assuming I was capable of it)?

'Certain situations' are undefined, so what use is that advice?

Anyway the Highway Code is not law.

We have a level crossing we use regularly and it's the mainline to Scotland so very busy, you can skirt around it there is a bridge (novel idea that) if we are in a hurry.


It all kicked off with them pesky belisha beacons I reckon, gone downhill since, bloody panda crossing et al, no wonder the bloody planet is overpopulated.
