    Surely they should not be working??????

    I had to go into town this am and was APPALLED to see a Traffic Warden patrolling!!!!!!!

    No way can they be described as "essential workers" so gave him some ear ache and told the ****** to go home.........Rang our Councillor who I know well to complain.....She was not aware that they were still working and agreed to try to get them sent home ASAP.

    I think lycra louts should be banned from the road too. I went for my essential food shopping in the next town. Out of town roads empty but coming back 3, yes THREE!, bikes were on the road and I was forced to overtake. No cars just bikes. If I had collided with them who knows what germs and bugs would have been spread all over the bonnet and up the windscreen. Some people have no thought for others. Bikes should observe safe distancing and keep at least 6 meters from any road.

    Whenever the temptation to bounce a cyclist off of a fender (wing) arises, I always temper my feelings with the eternal question: "Will it scratch the paint?"
