Default You really couldn't make it up...

PW Lee in another newsgroup (and referring to a driver who had been
involved in a traffic accident):

QUOTE:
Why is he not being charged with both failure to stop after the
initial collision and dangerous driving?
He's clearly guilty of both.
ENDQUOTE

How about High Treason as well?

QUOTE:
And there is some evidence that he routinely breaks the law by driving
the wrong way along this one-way street as a shortcut - no doubt cctv
footage could be reviewed to substantiate that.
ENDQUOTE

I'd be all for that being done routinely and significant penalties being
dealt out to offenders.

Anyone care to hazard a submission on what class of vehicular traffic
most often ignores one-way working?

It's not the traffic that ignored one-way working, it is the vehicle
operator. In this case a BMW driver.

It's not the traffic that ignored one-way working, it is the vehicle
operator.


Quite so.

And in/on what sort of vehicle does the operator most frequently ignore
one-way working, plus red traffic lights, pedestrian-only status of a
facility, etc?

In this case:
http://www.surreycomet.co.uk/news/ki...t_spooked_him/
It appears that the BMW driver was so shocked that a law abiding
cyclist told him that he was going the wrong way down a one way
street, that he collided with the cyclist before ploughing into
several pedestrians, a brick wall and a London bus.

The comments section of the report says it all.

Imagine how shocked MrNugent would be if a law-abiding cyclist told him to abandon his wrong ways and follow the path of virtue. Buses, pedestrians and brick walls would all have to flee!

Poor old Crispin - still cannot understand a simple question.

Here it is again: "Anyone care to hazard a submission on what class of
vehicular traffic most often ignores one-way working?"

Come on now - you can do it.

I'd invite you to try again, but have no confidence that you'd be any
less incorrect.

What is it about straightforward questions that confuses so many folk?

In/on what sort of vehicle does the operator most frequently ignore
one-way working, plus red traffic lights, pedestrian-only status of a
facility, etc?
