Oooooooo firemans tackle on show!!!!!! oO

the only time you will see a bigger hose than mine.....I do love my karcher

Careful how they open your bonnet, they like cutting it off...and the roof!

Are they currying public favour for another imminent strike?

Cold get Sony...

....Just walk away....unless Susana Reid is carrying out the inspection (_;)

A little bit harsh that. Yes, folk should know how to check the very basics like tyre pressures and condition/ water level / screen wash and oil level but even our neighbour, who is a doctor, needed telling that her brakes needed checking as I could hear them grating when she pulled up on the driveway....just not mechanically minded.

I'm sure there are plenty of disabled people not able to do it. Surely, we shouldn't revoke their licences?

​I wasn't referring to people who aren't physically capable to check these things .
I'm not saying any of this to be harsh , I'm saying it's a flaw in the system ... people need to learn the basics for there own safety & the safety of other road users.
