  1. That's not actually true though is it P1 ? If it was there would be a blanket 30mph, or even 20mph, speed limit on all roads (and that would save far more lives than these traffic lights ever would).
  2. Even, these days, disproportionately...... But, if roadwork take up no more room than a legally parked car (in some cases less...) why do they need traffic lights ?
  3. Exactly. My memory is not what it was, but where ? This is about traffic lights where they should be none at all, not about road works that go on far too long.
  4. What do these protesters expect to happen ? Putin to suddenly think "Oh British motorists are being delayed by fuel protesters (mainly, but not exclusively) because of my invasion of the Ukraine, so I'll withdraw straightaway" ? They could be complaining about the tax on fuel, but the Government is in MASSIVE debt, mainly (but not exclusively) because it spent Billions and Billions trying to suppress Covid by suppressing society and the economy. If it reduces the tax on fuel it'll just have to put it up elsewhere, and, let's remind ourselves, the roads are all still packed anyway, even with record breaking fuel prices..... Wrong target methinks.
  5. Does anyone know if the regulations over if traffic lights for road works are required have changed recently ? A few times in the last month I have been past roadworks that are taking up no more room than legally parked cars would yet they have traffic lights holding up all the traffic.

  7. I have regularly asked my tenants if they have seen any evidence of rats and the answer is always no. I can see no reason why they would lie about it so that is further evidence they are coming from elsewhere.
  8. I am as certain as I can be that they're coming from somewhere else, there is literally nothing for them to eat in our shop (other than the bait we leave out for them......). But even if they aren't coming from somewhere else "our" rats could roam all over the place and, in fact, their off spring could emigrate to pastures new infesting other properties. So no, I don't agree with you, I think rats are a communal problem.
  9. We keep no food in the shop apart from some choc bars in my closed desk and some stuff in a closed fridge. I hardly ever, if ever, see evidence of them chewing anything in the shop, just in the suspended ceiling. I think they live elsewhere and just com exploring round our shop..... Thus proving rats are a communal problem and as such should be a council responsibility. They're taking the bait, loads of it. The comment I made in the opener about them dying of indigestion was only half joking. Either we are killing loads but they are dying elsewhere (you can tell when one dies as we get an infestation of flies), or they are immune to the poison.
  10. It has occurred to me that environmentalists should be against these train strikes (and in fact all industrial action in public transport) because if they want people to get rid of their cars they have to be 100% confident they can still get about. The thing is many (most ? ) environmentalists, esp the hardcore, are left wing and therefore in favour of workers rights to take industrial action. So, I wonder what side of the fence they'll come down on ?
  11. I don't think the car would have to be speeding to kill a rat, not by running over it anyway.....
  12. I don't like the buggars, but I'm not sure I could come in to find a dead rat in the trap, even worse if it was only injured.
  13. I was joking (......! ), cats might do the trick, but it's a shop.
  14. Bearing in mind rats are a communal problem I don't understand why there should be charges for some premises and not others.
