Ban motorcycles? What about...

Published: 06 November 2008

Just recently hundreds of hedonistic persons went joy walking across the lake district. They were people acting selfishly, without a thought for other persons that would have to pay for rescue services to help them out when their irresponsible activities caused them to get into great difficulties.

Is it not time ACPO suggested that persons wishing to access the fells held a full mountaineers licence and only used approved low level routes. Furthermore that any person rambling in an inconsiderate manner should be subject to stop checks to ensure hat they were in full possesion of all safety gear.

Also we need to look at women on horseback. Horses are the single greatest cause of death in young females. That horses can be used unlicensed on a highway is ridiculous. Furthermore are horses tested for their fitness to be on a road, a spooked horse careering down the road is dangerous to all not just the rider.

Then we have sports car drivers, these irresponsible persons drive machines weighing hundreds of kilograms which can travel at speeds, in some cases, at over 200 mph. ACPO surely should be looking to have such cars fitted with speed limiters that are connected to sat-nav to ensure that they always comply with the speed limit. However, it is a fact that a minority interest with a high percentage of working class and young males is a much easier target.
