  1. You also have to consider the driver's actions and their consequences on his employer and colleagues. TM could very well be prosecuted. Such things are usually considered on tenders for work, keeping contracts, insurance etc and so could have a knock on effect on his colleagues keeping their jobs, level of pay etc. Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  2. Anyone know anything about a car allegedly crashing into ponds forge and it being closed? Was going to go for a swim...! Posted from Sheffieldforum.co.uk App for Android
  3. I had the delights of following someone on the A57 and over the snake pass last night with their rear fog lights on. Wasn't foggy in the slightest. Rainy and dark, but that was it.
  4. Nice bunch... http://forgetoday.com/news/students-occupy-arts-tower-in-support-of-staff-strikes/
  5. Very thought provoking article about how wearing the poppy has become, for some, too politicised. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/nov/08/poppy-last-time-remembrance-harry-leslie-smith
  6. We have about 10 conifer trees you can have for free...
  7. Tenfold increase in catalytic converters in S Yorks: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-24811143
  8. Most of the companies have their own conditions of carriage on their websites. First's is on their website below and look at 4.8 onwards if you are really interested... http://www.firstgroup.com/ukbus/south_yorkshire/about_us/conditions_of_carriage/ Each bus company will have different terms and conditions and so the contract will be based upon these, but they will all likely be similar in nature in that once you have boarded, told them where you are going and paid your fare, you agree to their T&C's of Carriage.
  9. I suspect that the Needhams will be very happy that it is grabbing some headlines - even if for all the wrong reasons and a negative result. Anything (legal) that keeps Ben's name and image in the press must surely be a good thing to increase the chances of closure for the Needhams.
  10. Made it onto the Guardian http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2013/oct/30/dominos-pizza-delivery-killed-final-round-it-sheffield-peiris
  11. My eldest (6) goes there and loves it. Has lessons on a Monday night. Deffo worth doing the induction and having a go as well.
  12. Article in the star about it, although you wouldn't know by the title of it... http://www.thestar.co.uk/news/local/-1-6180739
  13. Road Traffic Act 1980 Section 70 170 Duty of driver to stop, report accident and give information or documents. (1)This section applies in a case where, owing to the presence of a mechanically propelled vehicle on a road or other public place, an accident occurs by which— (b)damage is caused— (ii) to an animal other than an animal in or on that mechanically propelled vehicle or a trailer drawn by that mechanically propelled vehicle (8 )In this section “animal” means horse, cattle, ass, mule, sheep, pig, goat or dog.

  15. Obviously I don't know what the injuries are (and my condolences to the friends and family of the poor lady), but I have always thought that for the safety of the users (epsecially those on a class 3 scoota), helmets should be worn. I would supsect that the vast amount of life threatening/fatal injuries sustained either from RTA's, falls from the scooter (e.g. going over unstable ground), loss of control etc would be due to head injuries that may not have been fatal/as serious if a helmet had been worn. Not much help here, but maybe something we could think about if a loved one etc uses one.
