Just in case anyone thought it's just GB or Safe Speed...

May sound like it is just a biker issue, but go to the link and it could have come from any number of posts/posters/protestors on SS and more! (Which is why I posted it here if okay?).

Difference is that in France ,they'll object loudly and with protests. Over here it's left to the next man ,so nothing gets done and this sort of ideas are allowed by default.

You’re right of course Dave, sadly.

I remember HGV drivers in France kicked-off big time over the price of fuel. We in England then attempted a poor imitation. It made local news with interviews from a few disgruntled drivers - then they went back to work.

That was years ago now but I’ve got the gist right.
