Just Desserts

This is probably old hat now, but I only saw it today and it made me laugh. It is always good to see queue-jumpers getting their come-uppance! Watch out for the 4×4 – its the best bit.

We have one of these rising bollards at Broadfield stadium as part of the Fastway system. If I remember rightly it is designed to collapse if hit so that it can be easily replaced and also for some health & safety reasons. Also there is quite a delay after the bus passes before it rises.

I think I would like to see something like these ones in Manchester instead. Just look at how soon they come up after the bus passes, and how robust they are. If we had one of these installed I reckon we would also need a bench or two for spectators.

    Very funny! Some drivers think they have a God-given right to do what they please and it’s nice to see them get their comeuppance!
