    Oddly enough, I was listening to a Linda Thomson CD this morning, and when it came to one track I though "that must be Swarbs on fiddle", and when I looked, sure enough it was :angel:. The other fiddler I find recognisable is Aly Bain.

    Personally I think vehicle crushing (or at least permanent confiscation) would deter a lot of dangerous road behaviour.
    Folks who can't use their vehicle safely should lose it.

    Anyone caught with a mobile or other device in hand while driving.
    Drunk drivers
    Dangerous drivers
    Serious speeders (100mph+)
    Any driver convicted of injuring somebody by careless driving (not fake whiplash claims)

    Convict them and crush their motors.
    Not immediately of course - we don't want to encourage stupid car chases as they try to escape.
    But in a few days or however long it takes to do the paperwork.
    No transferring ownership or other dodges like that.
    Just tow it away & scrap it.

    Those two idiots in that video also need to find the sense they were born with.
    Not to twig that emergency lay-bys are covered by CCTV with people watching it all the time <laugh> <doh>

    Many cars now have forward & rear dashcams.

    It should be possible for footage of tailgaters to be sent to the traffic cops, so persistent offenders can be warned or cited.
    But I guess the system would just get overloaded with millions of video clips.

    Anyway, I'm wandering off the main topic of good news.

    It's Sunday! :emoticon-0157-sun: a rest day for most of us. Got to be good news <ok>
