My , if rather sarcastic , point being that the police are staying out of the way because they more than most are aware of the dangers of such actions , and therefore have no desire to endanger themselves . tongue.gif

smile.gif yeah and they do have rather pitiful cars for this weather.

I have now seen everything.
On Wednesday morning ( forgive delay ) a white transit van slid passed me sideways while trying to ascend our hill with one hand on the steering wheel and the other holding a phone to his ear .
I stood there in abject amazement at this stupidity , then it dawned on me why you never see a policeman ........They are all hiding rolleyes.gif

Police cant be everywhere my friend, wish they were but they arnt, and i expect there not hiding just doing paperwork and they havent got the best cars to go around in the snow in. Newbury police station covers a vast area not just newbury. plus if people cant get into work then that affects police precence aswell.

Over the lovely christmas period i was doing my christmas shopping in the town centre as many of you were probably, and what i seemed to notice was the amount of buses going through. With the amount of people in northbrook street it really annoys me that buses are allowed to pass through. Ive seen many impaticed bus drivers drive unreasonably fast and honk people how didnt noticed a the bus. I have enough things on my mind without watching for buses. Im not saying all bus drivers do this but some do.

If the town centre was turned completely people only from 10am -6pm everyday and not even buses could come through, change the american bridge so that only buses can use it (im always stuck in traffic there anyway) then until the new parkway development is done (in 2030), this would ease some of the problems. And also the bollard problem it might help stop some of the cars following the buses.

Dont know what other people think.

Does anyone know why the prices are so different from places around, or is it that Newburys a soft target? Usually to save money i catch the train but its only a little cheaper to catch the train and its either late or has an irrelegular timetable. Buses never see them other then going through newbury town centre on a busy day, honking there horn at people.
