I guess it cant help to guilt people into feeling bad about it...
My feelings, would be to give out 6 points a time if caught speeding outside a school... I hate to see it i really really do!
Alex it would seem watching channel 5 is bad for your health and good for your wealth.. The other one I like is the one where you can check your credit file FREE OF CHARGE. but you have to put in credit card details to do it..then if you forget to cancel they charge you..and these are the people who are also out there to stop fraud etc.. EXPERIAN I think..
One of the "contingency lawyers" (no sale, no fee) is advertising on TV at present. It goes like this:
There were lots of kids at the bus stop. I slowed down but the other driver did not see me. He reversed straight out. I couldn't avoid him. I was badly injured and the car was a write off. I got £x compensation and "they" have re-sited that bus stop".
It beggars belief. What if a child had dashed out (the driver had already spotted the hazard, children at the bus stop), how fast was he going?
If he was going slowly, how did he manage to write his car off and worse still, with a seatbelt and airbag, why was he injured?
Indeed, instead of compensation he should probably be in jail, or off for remedial training.
In another of their efforts, the person speaking to camera jumps back when a car fails to stop as he is about to use a zebra crossing. He then proceeds to cross, looking left (!) whilst doing his piece to camera. But the traffic comes from the right in this country, daddy?
In a third, some stupid woman trips on redundant wrapping on a factory floor, damages her knee and gets a shed load of compensation. In the final scene she is seen tidying redundant wrapping into a dust bin with a concluding note of smug satisfaction. If she had done that in the first place - no "accident", no pain and suffering, no compensation. Why was she not sacked rather than compensated?
Is it me, or are people genuinely allowed to be this stupid and then expect you and I to pay for the NHS and "them" to compensate?
I suppose this is what we know as the compensation culture. Some culture!
If they're doing something wrong then they should be have legal process applied.What do you think of this?
If they're doing something wrong then they should be have legal process applied.
If it's ok for them to be let off after a chat with some kids then they're presumably not doing anything massively wrong, so why detain them?
I think it's a poorly thought-out gimmick to make the police feel they're doing something and give PTA members a warm, fuzzy feeling.
