Motorists naughtier than cyclists? Surely not!

I’m sorry Sean but I came here for help with a PCN (as lots do). It turned out there was an error on said PCN, and the extremely knowledgeable guys on here helped me to get it cancelled, at no cost to me.

There are many like me, who appreciate this forum and it’s members, who give their time to help others. If you don’t like it then perhaps you can leave us alone and go to Mr Freeman for advice - how much does he charge again??

Unfortunately nor can we when we read some of the crap you post...

Please explain.



The list is long.......

I think your finest hour was the post about the West Mids police video where you made massive assumptions about what had happened when you had no knowledge of the facts.

Having been shot down in flames your absence was conspicuous

My favourite parts are the strange vilification of our fire brigades. God forbid one of Sean’s (many) properties catch fire and he gets caught upstairs powdering his nose... fast forward to his screaming out the window ‘I’m sorry firemen! I take it all back!! Heeeeelp!!’

Maybe his mate Nick Freeman can help?

Have you ever asked firemen how many fires they actually extinguish every month?
The answer is negligible as most houses are properly wired, chip-pans are no longer sold and many houses don't have gas appliances. Those that do have flame failure devices incorporated into their appliances.

Statistics are readily available, for example ..

In 2016-17, the SFRS attended a total of 27,240 fires, an increase of two per cent (612 fires) compared to 2015-16.

To add perspective SFRS has circa 7,800 staff of which just 46.5% (about 3,600) are full time. Circa 6,700 are firefighters (permanent, retained and volunteer unpaid), the rest support staff.
356 stations, so an average of 76.5 fires per station over the year, although its inevitable that the full time manned stations (21% or 75 stations) will have attended more than their fair share, that's why they are the manned stations!

UK wide stats for 2018...

In the year ending December 2018:
•576,586 incidents were attended by FRSs. This was a two per cent increase compared with the previous year (565,777). This was driven by an increase in the number of fires attended, and in particular, in secondary fires. (Source: FIRE0102)
•FRSs attended 231,122 fire false alarms. This was a three per cent increase compared with the previous year (224,034). Fire false alarms ‘due to apparatus’ accounted for twothirds (66%) of fire false alarms. (Source: FIRE0104)
•Of all incidents attended by FRSs, fires accounted for 31 per cent, fire false alarms 40 per cent and non-fire incidents 29 per cent. (Source: FIRE0102)

Public policy on building regulations, flame proof upholstery, smoke alarms etc has been responsible for saving an awful lot of lives over my lifetime but I wonder whether the invention of oven chips might have saved even more?

Ah yes, but don’t oven chips need to be stored frozen? I seem to recall a block of flats catching fire due to a malfunctioning fridge freezer. The chip pan fire has been replaced by the frozen food storage fire.

Don’t forget the washing machine fires as well.

I have to say this is one of the best thread creeps I’ve seen for a while. It was originally just a gentle tease of motorists which ended up at oven chips via the fire brigade! Brilliant!

This thread didn’t creep; it took billy big steps in a completely random direction.

In America, the vast majority of red traffic lights mean stop, just like here. In exceptional cases, there's normally a sign saying it's OK to turn on red. In the UK we are clear:


You'd be wrong. In the US, the signs only state when turning right is NOT allowed. There are cities where turning right on red is not allowed at all - NYC being one of them.

I reserve the right to be wrong.

Surely any conversation about "the US" is pointless as these things are a matter for state law anyway?

Indeed but IIRC all 50 states have adopted such laws (including DC). IIRC as well, they were prompted by federal law mandating such laws in order to receive certain federal grants (an interesting issue re states’ rights).

Maybe so but the suggestion above that there is no right turn on red in NYC indicates there is scope for local variations.
