Is there any way to kick some ass of local landowners and householders to have them cut back their hedges so that car drivers and walkers can see vehicles heading in the opposite direction around the many bends that feature in this village? Wink

reference the hedge problem 1.a polite request to said owner of the offending hedge to cut it back,if the answer is in the negative then a ruddy good dowsing of granny macs allkill crop spray,ibelieve she sold the formula to the spam eaters who used it in vietnam,only they called it agent orange.

Maybe you have come up with a solution to the village's problem with speeding cars - perhaps we should encourage home owners
NOT to cut their hedges back, thereby encouraging drivers to go more carefully and slowly Very Happy

As an added bonus, the extra deep hedges would also provide somewhere for walkers to jump into when a car does come dangerously close.

I might be alittle nieve,naieve,thick but why is there no speed cameras at yawl or uplyme,not for the purposes of inflicting fines or points but to get good close ups of the brainless addlewitted cretinous trolls.
the reason is,that the next time they speed through the village they can be dragged from their cars,chucked in the stocks and pelted with any thing foul smelling.grrr. Evil or Very Mad

Wouldn't that be great - return of the village stocks.

I think the truth is that the authorities just don't care.

This has already been discussed here at some length - please see...

Also, quite a good article from the BBC that Fiona found...
