Poynton's ridiculous "Equal Rights For All!" traffic management policy.

It's ludicrous.

In a nutshell, some bright spark at Poynton Council decided to introduce a revolutionary new approach to road safety, namely, do away with road markings, give ways, traffic lights, etc and give everybody (pedestrians included) equal rights when it comes to junctions, crossings, roundabouts and the roads in general.

And the best bit is, it's not sign-posted anywhere.

So if, like me, you're not a local and you unwittingly stumble across it for the first time, your introduction to it may well involve coming across some little old man walking out in front of your car without warning.

I could tell he'd seen me because it was a long, straight stretch of road and he was looking directly at me when he did it.

Fortunately, I was only doing about 25, so when I slammed on, I still had time to stop.

When I wound my window down to remonstrate with him and offer him a lift back to whichever residential care facility he'd obviously just escaped from, he just waved his stick at me and shouted: "Equal rights for pedestrians!"

Which I initially took as confirmation that he was, indeed, a nutter but it set me thinking, so I googled it.

And it turns out it's true.

It's fucking crazy and I can't believe there aren't any signs warning "foreigners" about it as you drive into the town centre.

Ok then but let's have equal road tax for pedestrians and cyclists, if they want equal rights on the road pay for the privilege like motorists do.
Used to cover Poynton in a previous job and they're a bunch of smug, self serving pretentious twats.

I used to get that when I delivered pizzas too.

But I was getting sneered at in Breightmet and Darcy Lever, not Poynton and Prestbury.

And Boncey.......

There is a similar set up in Gloucester, but its signposted, and only runs for a short distance, but includes a couple of minor junctions. It does make you a bit more aware, but only because you are confused as to what the changes are, and what you can expect. As a result you drive through, looking all around, and not necessarily at whats going on in front of you. having said that, its supposed to be better than it was, and the traffic flows better, (allegedly)

Tall idiots who decide to stand in front of you at gigs even though you've been stood there for ages.

Down in front you lanky streak of piss  Mad

I think they should introduce a scheme so that all shortarses (like me) get to go to the front and then it moves back in the same way to the lanky twats stuck at the back

Doha 1978 and after years of "free for all" driving where the biggest cars and biggest egos forced their way through at junctions and the 6000 members of the Qatari royal family exercised their right to ignore the token Somali traffic police, some bright spark decided it would be a good idea to put the country's first traffic lights in the main junction of the Souk.

Six months later, after half a dozen or so young princes had died through exercising their right of way and ignoring the red lights, a solution was found. They removed the lights.

I believe they now have traffic lights and have educated the public to use them although I haven't been back there since 1980.

Fictitious characters that lie about going to matches in order to con gullible fools on the internet into giving them kudos despite chatting unfeasibly large volumes of shite and demonstrating a complete lack of knowledge about the game, players, tactics, football and life in general. 

Although to be honest they're more of a laughing stock than an irritant.

But what a fantastic racing driver. I don't agree with his ' party lifestyle ' but having won three world titles and narrowly missing out on a fourth due to mechanical problems, he is without question the greatest ever racing driver to emanate from the British Isles.

I would say Jim Clark was.

These days it's the fastest car that wins irrespective of who is driving it, but back then it was the best driver that won it irrespective of what ever heap he was driving.

Clark was the best of the best.

Its chaos.  Just having a coffee and a chill.

Glad its for the lad and not the girl.  Went to the oxygen one near the trafford centre a few months a go and the girl wanted to go on so i went on with her.  They have this massive airbag thing you jump off a ledge onto a teampoline and flip onto the airbag.  I nearly broke my back.   Then when trying to get off it i was rolling like a beached whale and just as they said not to do it i reached the edge which then plummeted about ten feet, folding me in half THE WRONG WAY!

ill stick to my coffee today's
