  • Yeah I know[:I] It could never happen, but it was aimed at petrolhead and not yourself.
    I can only apologise[:I]

  • I'm not entirely sure where the post was directed, but have to agee with Peyote. I was simply quoting the emotive language used by the pro-camera groups.

    Not sure why phsyical violence should be offered to anyone offering an opinion on this forum, or any other for that matter!!!
  • I generally find calling people scum will illicite my kind of response. Maybe you are right surely only scum would resort to it.....

  • Ah our replies are crossing, so since I quoted the sentiment held within this quote:

    <blockquote id="quote"><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id="quote">quote:<hr height="1" noshade id="quote">
    posted by Cunobelin:
    These are all red herrings to try and remove an effective tool for dealing with incompetent and arrogant drivers<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote">

    Now you feel you can attack me!

    I am quite concerned with the attitude of disregard to the law contained within this statement though, perhaps you could explain:

    <blockquote id="quote"><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica" id="quote">quote:<hr height="1" noshade id="quote"> I chose to ignore the limit and got caught.
    <hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote">

    Why on earth would you choose to break the law!!! Surely that is the worst thing I have heard. Running down a hill and accidently running over the limit perhaps. Failure to note the sign hidden behind the undergrowth, maybe, but a conscious decision to break the law?
  • Well in this instance, what I did was to start acelerating before the national limit sign. Therefore I chose to ignore where the new limit started. It does not constitute dangeropus driving IMO. Have you NEVER broken the law?

    <hr height="1" noshade id="quote"></blockquote id="quote"></font id="quote">

    Now we're talking, of course I have broken the law. Just like every living person on this planet. I have drifted over the speed limit occasionally. I have made personal calls from work (theft). Given information to friends about confidential business dealings (insider trading). To list but a few.

    The point I was making (sorry, I made you a target, and that is a genuine apology) is that everyone who has a licence has done the exact same as you. You weren't driving dangerously (from your description, quite the opposite). In your opinion would you not say the siting of said trap was opportunistic rather than safety orientated?

    Is that Engineering with a big E (ie you get letters after your name) or with a little e (I fix washing machines).

    The latter I believe..



    By the way I'm the former, and I don't know who told you there's a lot of money in it but don't believe em!

    I once met a "thermal engineer". He lagged pipes.

    I thought he was into some kind of air conditioning or summat. So he was a mechanic?

    He also says that he was off sick for a while, and rather than going back to work decided to plough all his time into his campaign.

    It all sounds pretty fishy to me.

    Ah, he'll be one of those 'service engineers' then. ie man in boiler suit, fits pipes.


    Not that i'm knocking these jobs, not at all, but they don't really qualify you in highway engineering do they?
    Try 4 ****in years at univeristy for a start, then several years on the job sweating it out, and you will start to get the hang of it.

    I'm sure PS read a few papers though and figured the rest out for himself. flower.
