Time waster

They ain't all fans!

Peter Jackson writes me this merry little note:

"If timewasters like you obeyed the law and stopped wasting the time of the Council and the police, perhaps they would have time to tackle crime. I don't know how you have the audacity to criticise the police when you are a criminal yourself.

Your arrogant attitude amazes me. Speed limits apply to everyone and you are just as guilty of breaking the law as those who speed up Wibsey High Street. Speed limits are set by people who know a lot more than you do about road traffic, and road traffic accidents. Why don't you do a couple of calculations:

1. How much time do you save by travelling at 85 compared to 70.
2. How much extra energy does your car have at 85 compared to 70

After that why don't you pay your fines, slow down and shut up?"

There are several points I could raise with Mr Jackson, but I can't be bothered. What is interesting though is how members of the "anti-speed" lobby are so consistently rude and aggressive. Perhaps being so frustrated behind the wheel, lumbering along at 70mph, they feel the need to take it out on their fellow man (and woman).

But I do apologise for doing 85mph on the M6 in Cumbria. I am embarrassed to be recorded doing this speed.

Unfortunately, one of my catalytic converters was breaking up, which affected the performance of the car. Otherwise, on that stretch, I would have been doing 100mph indicated.

In Germany, on a road of that quality, I would have been doing 130mph... but there you go.

So you "could" have answered the very well made points, but "couldnt be bothered". Instead choosing to demonstrate the very defiant attitude that gets you in so much trouble.

Who do you think is winning your little war? Its not the police who have been fined so much..its not the police that are called to court after court for offences... its not the police that spend time in prison... I doubt most policemen have even been burgled five times.

Sounds like you have lost on all fronts. You may have earnt more respect from everyone outside your merry bunch of equally criminal motorists if you had taken it like a man instead of spitting out your dummy.

Sure you can go 100mph on the road. I couldnt care less if you go 130mph. But you WILL get prosecuted for it. Now you may continue sucking your thumb.
