As beemers are rear wheel drive, I found the way to cope with snow was to put weights in the boot and go everywhere in reverse!    You know it makes sense!!!   :vrface:

I prefer to switch off the traction control and enjoy the rear wheel drive. You just can't beat sliding around corners and roundabouts. And it doesn't wear the tyres out doing it in the snow.

Turning off the traction control certainly helped in the snow.

Hey....Edinburgh Council 

 

Braid Road closure. 

 

Gonnae just open it now if youre not fixing anything on it. Pointless closure that just makes traffic worse around it.

 

If traffic keeps getting worse there as the weather gets harsher I will kill someone to ensure I maintain good mental health. That murder will be blood on your hands.

Kids at South Morningside choking on the fumes of queuing traffic in Comiston Road, rerouted due to Braid Road closure.

Clowncillors claim closures will persuade us all to walk or cycle instead. The reality is the cars just drive on alternative roads.

Indeed. There are a limited number of people who can change their mode of transport. I used to take that route frequently to get to the bypass and onto the M8 to get to Ecclesmachan. Public transport would have taken me hours, and cycling was 90 minutes each way (plus carrying kit). Just not feasible to use anything other than the car. Edinburgh Council seem to think that everyone works in an office and that by closing a few roads we'll somehow create a Dutch-style cyclist's paradise.

Don't have the ticket so can't remember the exact wording but the way I took it was that you forfeited the early discount by challenging, which is almost impossible as the list of challenge reasons basically amount to it didn't happen (hard to argue against a photo of your car in the lane during operating times, regardless of circumstance) or it's not your car.

Couldn't let it go, and so have challenged it. The car, as shown by the video they provide, was in the lane for 2.3 seconds. Travelled just under 20 metres prior to the lane ending, which is guideline distance for 'grace' which may be granted by the appeal. 

 

I've used that angle, added to the fact that I was moving into the left lane to turn into Gordon Terrace, and so it wouldn't have made an iota of difference if I'd done so 20 metres later or not. The bus lane was clear and traffic in the other lane was running freely at the time, so no attempt to skip the queue or hold up a bus/cyclist/taxi.

******* roadworks!

 

Due to the roadworks at the Drumbrae roundabout, I’ve been stuck in the Tesco car park for over an hour. I was meant to pick my son up from school at 12.25. Thankfully when I phoned the school, one of his teachers kindly offered to drive him home.

Just drove up Pentland terrace. The wet leaves are piled up on the pavement and these cycle lanes. How are they going to clear them, as it’s really narrow. Someone going to get hurt.

I got thrown out of sainsbury's tonight after the security took offence to me asking them to stand back from me. I was waiting to pay and they stood about 6inches away from me to discuss someone they thought was shop lifting. They tried to deny it then they followed me and one was pushing into me using his belly and trying to intimidate me. 

 

 

****ing jumped up prick. I did give him lip on the way out because I never done anything wrong in the first place.

People who go to the shops and think “you know what, I better take a shit while I’m here”, drop a large one off (skidders and all) then get up and go for the next poor ****er to enter the cubicle to be greeted with.

Electric Scooters on the road. Black Scooter, black jeans and black parka with hood up, seen more illuminance emanating from a Xmas fairylight than the light over the back wheel barely 9 inches from the ground. Just about took this fud out proper on Crewe Toll roundabout @ 6:45 this morning.

Just wait until December. I reckon electric scooters are going to be the Christmas present of choice for neds.

Somebody I know (not a Ned but a sensible middle aged man) bought himself one during lockdown so he could get around without having to go on public transport. He got all huffy when people slagged it and spent a lot of time on Facebook going on about how brilliant it is. Obviously didn’t understand that small wheels are quite unstable and managed to hit a small lump on a footpath and break both his wrists. 
I smirked.

I once had to stop at a supermarket for a shit cause I was still about a hour from home and it was pushing me through the roof, I dropped the biggest dirtiest thing imaginable and when I eventually came out a wee boy was waiting to get in, I couldn't hide the smile. It was glorious.

I had to have an emergency stop in the NCP car park on Castle Terrace. It was better after I left it, it was like the toilet from Trainspotting and actually had blood from syringes squirted on the walls. It’s not easy having a dump trying to hover so your cheeks don’t touch the seat. 
The worst toilet experience of my life until a couple of years ago in New York when I got terrible cramps and had to use a public toilet (rare things in the states) in Union Square. Tiny toilet with one cubicle and I had to push my way past the junkies to get to the toilet. Cue sitting in pain for 5 minutes with them banging on the door asking how long I was going to be as they needed in for business purposes.

I was down at a mates in Northampton a few years ago stalking, we'd been out in the morning and went to a cafe for breakfast that had an outside toilet, it was late February and was well below freezing, I nipped out to the bog and dropped the log of a lifetime, we'd been out each night on the beer and had a couple of curries, low and behold the water had frozen in the outside bog and there was no way of flushing the thing I'd left, I had to ask in the cafe to get a stick or something to break it's back and see if I could get it moving somehow, by christ it stuck too, my mate says he never went back there for months out of sheer embarrassment.

There are also the goons that have worked out how to take the speed limiters off them. I was cycling home a few nights ago late at night on the cycle path which was totally deserted as it was well after dark. I was going at a decent speed when one of the powered skateboards with the handle held throttle shot past me. I didn’t hear it coming up behind me and got a bit of a fright as it shot past. I was ready to have a word with him but there was no way I was able to catch it the speed it was going, must have been close to 30mph.

Related seethe, electric skate boards.

 

They are not legal on pavements or roads here (Sydney), but you see them all the time,  whizzing down the pavement, inches from breaking ankles of law abiding pedestrians.  

 

 

*Anti-seethe, saw the police huckle a bloke on one on Saturday  he was told he could disconnect the motor and try to skate normally,  or carry it. That made my day!

Ooft, maybe start carrying marbles or something similar in your pocket? I'd imagine hitting them at 30mph with those wee wheels would be catastrophic...

Roadworks are always annoying but a necessary evil. But when they seem to dig up the same road over and over again which seems to happen consistently in Edinburgh it boils my piss. 

 

Three times this year the end of my road has been dug up. Not emergency works either but upgrades by three different companies!

Yeah😞 I was sitting watching them working on the junction of Comiston Road and Greenbank Drive this afternoon, but still have no idea what they were up to. They cut a rectangular shape in the road in the right hand lane on the edge of the cycle box and just beyond🤷🏼‍♂️

Ratcliffe Terrace has those ominous yellow signs up, too. All they've managed to achieve in two days is to paint a squint line next to the bike lane. 

 

Council tax well spent :(

Have you been up Pentland terrace lately bud, I don’t know how anyone hasn’t had an accident with those cycle lane restrictions they’ve put in. They just randomly feed right out into the road at certain points and a mental City Car and Disabled space chucked in also, just to make it that little bit more awkward. Just a matter of time imo.

Sitting on Sunday night fudding about on my phone and get a message pop up saying my data is low.  I thought nothing of it as I was connected to the WiFi.  Monday night I get a message to say my data has run out and will renew in 23 days.  I think, must be some mistake.  Turns out I wasn't connected to the WiFi.  We got a new router on Friday and although my phone was connected, I wasn't signed in.  Absolute twit.

They're out there. I know 2 with them, albeit a bit more subtle than you're describing. One only gets away without looking ridiculous because he's 6 foot 4 and nobody can really see the top of his head
