A police force facing savage budget cuts has announced a crackdown on the menace of the mobility scooter driver./facepalm
Officers have launched a course to combat the scourge of the lawless silver-haired scooter rider as the number of accidents on the roads rise.
Still, we shouldn't be surprised. They have, in the past, been the target of overzealous policing (on the bright side though, there's no windows to smash!).
The Government is facing calls for a nationwide testing and registration scheme for the disability vehicles.Really? From whom? Not, I hope, from people like Richard Boyd? People with a vested interest in the industry that would flow from such legislation?
Leg-Iron is rather looking forward to the day he gets one, mind you:
"Oh, I am so looking forward to being old. The police are going to deploy stingers and squad bicycles in hot pursuit. Well, they are sooo hard to catch and they tick the boxes so it's inevitable really. When I get one I want it to come with the full Davros styling. If it doesn't, I'll fit it myself. I'll have a Pope hat too and go around screaming "Ex-commun-icate"! Perhaps also a bald wig. "Ex-foli-ate". There's more, as Jimmy Cricket used to say, but I'll save them for later."Old age is going to be pretty fun after all, I think...
