Saw one of these processions at about 5.15pm earlier this week on Staniforth Road. Lead car was a blue Lamborghini followed by 3 white Rollers, 2 black Rollers, then roughly twenty assorted Mercs, Land Rovers and BMWs. Horns blaring, people stood on passenger seats with top half out of sunroof. Seatbelts not being worn and mostly ignoring the red light at the roadworks. Tyres screeching just to move the car five feet. One moron even decided he would move up the queue a bit and in doing so blocked oncoming traffic so leaving tailback into roadworks ...... blocking procession!!! Cue even more blaring.

Total disregard for other road users and the highway code. Arrogance at its greatest.

yeah, same here.

Tell your friend to expect more of the same over the next few weeks since Asian weddings are more common in the Summer . . .

Sounds like this is one aspect of increasing cultural diversity that I would not (personally) regard as beneficial.

That's why ex-rental cars have an individual's name on the log book as keeper.

Yeah but us westerners don't block the roads and race them down the streets. I've noticed a lot of Asian lads racing big cars down penistone road too. I put it down to the heat sending everyone a bit loopy but maybe the weddings are to blame.

And no, liking fireworks doesn't mean your poor, just a bit stupid! What a waste of money they are! And it's true, they are appreciated more where people don't have cash. Look at it this way: last fireworks night I drove through Sheffield with parsons cross looking like the end of a Disneyland parade bit by the time I got up to crosspool there was hardly anything. Fact! Ha!

Itís the same with Christmas decorations too.

Far more houses at the Parson Cross end of town are decorated than at, many of which didnít even put a tree up in the window.

Whatís that all about ?

Lots of flashing Christmas lights are rather tacky!
