    Yes they are more likely to be on the pavements terrorising pedestrians - and no, I'm not joking! Sick to the back teeth of them!
    So get on to the council then, and put pressure on them then, instead of just moaning about it.

    l am sick to the back teeth of some of the idiots on here who have marked me down for making perfectly sensible suggestions.

    These people want it BOTH ways, they moan about them on the roads, they moan about them on the pavements, but when a simple and effective SOLUTION is put forward, ie a white line painted on the outside of pavements when wide enough to do so it is ridiculed.

    Totally stupid and unintelligent attitude. lf these people REALLY wanted them off the roads and not bothering pedestrians on the pavement, by weaving in and out, they would WELCOME a sensible suggestion. But oh no, all they are good for is moaning, l feel there are too many DIMWITS on here, so vote me down for that, I REALLY DON`T CARE about the opinions of a small minority of people of that mentality, who seem to be lacking in common sense as well !!!"
