Battle Dress

02Nov16

  How would you feel if, just for fun, a battle of Hastings reenactment society recreated the events of 1066 on a main road you were trying to drive along? People dressing up in costumes and pretending to be someone they’re not is happening every day on Britain’s roads. Grown men (and it’s usually men) […]

Cars have been traveling at 180 miles per hour on public roads this weekend. It’s the Monaco Grand Prix. Of course those roads are closed to normal traffic. It would be ridiculous to hold it on a road that’s open to the public. Motorsport has no place on our roads. It’s not just motorsport, it […]


I’m very suspicious of a city that hates cars as much as Cambridge does. I was there yesterday. There are loads of streets that you’re not allowed to drive down and there’s hardly anywhere to park! It’s ironic that there was once a car named after this place that detests them so much. On the […]


It’s not every day that you get a call, live on the radio from a bloke stuck in traffic trying to get his wife to the hospital so she can give birth! Here’s how it was covered on ITV… Craic on!

Time Travel

“I’m going to wait till the traffic has gone before I set off”. People say that to me all of the time and it makes no sense. If you set off later, there’s NO WAY you can get there any quicker! All of the people who set off before you are still in front of […]


I thought I’d solved my parking problem. There aren’t many cars in the car park at our block of flats during the day. It doesn’t fill up till after six in the evening when most people get home from work. Anyone working at the flats in the daytime; cleaners, tradesmen, gardeners etc. have a choice […]


Stop waving pedestrians across the road when you’re stopped at an intersection. It’s not a very nice thing to do. You’re making out that you’re helping but really you’re just lording it over them. You’re treating them as a peasant that may cross in front of your carriage. You might as well just lean out […]


Only an idiot thinks bus lanes are a good idea. According to the government’s official figures, there are 34.6 million vehicles licensed for use on the roads in Great Britain. Most of them (28.7 million) are cars, the rest are vans, goods vehicles and motorbikes. Buses are the least popular motor vehicle. So why do buses […]

I heard the radio station travel reporter say “The A1(M) in Hertfordshire is busy southbound this morning. It’s due to sheer weight of traffic”. Sheer weight of traffic? I was checking out what a competing radio station was up to when I heard this bloke blame THE TRAFFIC for the traffic! To be fair he […]


It’s amazing how different the world looks at different times of the day. Yesterday, I didn’t have to get to work till after 7:30am. I start on the Breakfast Show on Jack FM in Hertfordshire next week so it was a useful exercise. I sat in bumper-to-bumper traffic southbound on the A1 like a lot […]
