Box junctions

Why bother about box junctions and cameras, the traffic keeps flowing nicely!

Grest fun. It does make you wonder why we bother!!!

The traffic in Swansea has been brought almost to a standstill these days. A few weeks back I drove into town and was stunned by how well the traffic was moving. I thought maybe it was a bank holiday or something as it was rush hour and no probs. When I got to the biggest set of lights i noticed they were out - not causing any probs - people letting others out etc - no accidents and no congestion. Within an hour the lights were back - along with the traffic jams!!!

..because there are 60,000 roads deaths a year in India, compared to our 5,000 - and they don't have that many more cars than us.

Yes but they all drive like Italians in India, at least on the films I have ever seen. I.e. top speed is the maximum speed of your car and you only give way if the other guy is much bigger...

Just like driving in Bradford then... No, I'm not joking.

So they've even found a way to keep the number of cars down as well!!!

They also don't have MOTS! My father visited his son who is a journalist out in India last year. They hailed a taxi which apparenlty only had 2 wheel nuts holding one of the wheels on. Safe
