    I read today that some think tank (or socialist busybody) reckons that the braking distances in the Highway Code are wrong!
    Well Hoorah you're thinking! About time someone recognized that the modern brakes are far better than when the Highway Code was written with drum brakes being the norm and the disc setups that were out there were single piston on milk bottle top sized discs! Of course we now have discs that are bigger than the wheels were in those days on multi piston calipers with ABS and even fancy materials like carbon ceramics so we can stop much quicker.... right?

    Well, apparently not. Apparently we are all idiots who take far to long to spot a hazard and react to it! Apparently all those arcade and video games I've played haven't sharpened my reactions like all the previous studies have shown!

    Of course they are now advocating the braking distance is increased which translates into "let's reduce the speed limit!"

    I call Bollocks!
    If you see one of these inbred socialist dickheads in your area spouting off about this or similar bullshit please feel free To push them off the nearest cliff or at least castrate the twat to prevent further breeding.

    Can i add to it you you might or might not want to add RANT OVER lol,


    yes something was said to a client today along similiar lines not motor relate but you will get the jist, they said that management should go in said field of job so they understand what there staff are doing so when staff complain or have an idea they understand better . mybe
    some think tank (or socialist busybody) reckons
    should be offered the chance to drive say a nice austin A40 or a Morria marina then drive a smart car or a honda civic and see the diffferance but you do have to take into account today's driving standards and roads are more congested. my rant over lol,,,


    exsample the other day client office pen pusher wanted new 3phase fusebox fitted that day messured walled up got fusebox ready marked holes 4 to be drilled got drill out drilled 2 holes said person came in said cant do that comeback next week 6.30 in morning how else would you like it fixed do you have to drill holes what dose he/she want me to use blue tack sometimes you just have to walk away 2 holes to be drilled its an empty room with only a few people walking in and out not in full use yet. so higher bill coming
    just cant reason you explain to them . mybe they should google it then might understand lol,,,

    Fortunately I came from the background that I now manage but can relate as like most people I have experienced incompetence in management.
