Ron, this Tory council get paid a lot of money for bring in ‘down and outs’ from other areas. But, it could be an IOW idiot for all we know. All I know, judges are not handing out severe enough sentences to these cretins, so where is the justice. These types are laughing at the British justice system. No deterrent.

It’s getting to the stage now do you dare jump in your car and risk becoming a victim of these moranic drug crazed simpletons? Some day by the law of averages an innocent person is going to loose their life.

And they say it’s the older generation who should be restricted from driving at night….

Strange timing or coincidence, as soon as the pubs open up ( outside only apparently ) there is an increase in drink and drug related car accidents.

Older drivers are far superior to young drivers, drug or drink driving has become an epidemic on the Island of Wight when it comes to the younger generation..

And why do younger drivers wear hoodys when driving??? Do they have something to hide, or do they have some kind of mental illness?? It must affect their visibility when driving..

Very strange generation that feels the need to hide themselves, maybe they have some kind of agrowfobia and are afraid of the real world..

Very weird generation…

Listen to you with your dribble. No older drivers just flip their cars on there roofs or drive into bus stops or even better straight into Tesco’s front window in Wootton. Lol & hey and I wear a hoodie … so do an awful lot of people. …. I don’t hide my face to unless I put it on backwards.
Ask your career next time when your meals on wheels turn up.

Yep, your the kind of people I’m talking about, you even admit you wear the uniform because if you don’t, the other sheep may pick on you.

You are lacking personal choice or creativity, you simply wear what the rest tell you to wear, because your weak in life and weak in personality.

Being unique is what makes the world turn, you don’t have to make big corporations richer just because fashion says you must.

And please except order drivers course far less than younger drivers, that’s fact not fiction..

They roar around Newport late at night with their noisy engines,never seem to get stopped by the police.Yet the police can sit in their cars in the park checking people are distancing and are not in groups.Do some real work and get these scum of our roads,they are far more deadly than said virus!

If this idiot was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, he should have his driving license taken from him for 5 years, fined £1,000 and ordered to complete community service. What the hell is wrong with these people who think it is ok to do this. They risk killing or seriously injuring INNOCENT people.
The judges need to come down hard on this crime
