One shudders in one’s sports car at the thought (last month’s Matters of Moment seeds of the Police State). Are we all to be fined for turning corners with our tyres squealing?
It is bad enough being watched from the heavens (Durham’s Police helicopter), or caught in radar traps.
Mr. Marples need not grow any more grey hairs; he won’t have to worry about motor traffic in the next decade; we will all have lost our licences or will be exchanging our rally coats for overalls with arrow-tracks on them!
Who knows, perhaps Mr. Marples can find a job as Dr. Beeching’s assistant, or something along those lines!
In closing I must express my condolences to the Mini-Cooper owner.
