I love the Christmas period so much ;)

Just been out walking the dogs and nearly got wiped out by some old doddery f#rt programming his Satnav.
Just as bad a habit as using a phone.

Doing make-up, eating, drinking, reading, shouting at kids in the back seat, rolling !Removed!, the list is endless.
All driving without due care.

whenever i pick up the little one from school, i see so many parents to dont buckle up their kids, this rally anooys me. i think you guys should stake out the schools and stop each car and tell them off!

It,s not just mobile phones that cause crashes. Some dipstick ran up the back of the riot van last week, his excuse was, didn't see you stop, I was adjusting with the radio. :wacko: . See you in court! :)
