Will be even worse, once the weak council open the ‘thank you’ in advance cards and allow motor cycles to compete in racing on our unsuitable roads, as copy cats will see to that.

Ban it.

Whoops a daisy, cars doing somersaults now, it’s laughable how these so called drivers get in such a pickle!. Heavy right foot, lack of brain cells to use common sense and to know your limitations as a driver!!
