Swindon: Helping you put a foot on the accelerator.

The Swindon speed camera result is in.

I think I've said enough about this before.

I love it. I'm real keen to keep this one going if you are, blog author.
I.e. I don't think I can get tired of the joke.
In fact, I can do it in seriousness, as I just babble any illogical crap, and you must hold your breath because loving driving cars fastly is a must for any real man, and if you don't you are not a man.
How about this for starters:
Drive fast then slow down on approaching a speed camera then speed up again then hit some child you didn't see then speed up to get away from the scene then, oh bloody hell, what is all this s***ing government interference about, I naturally have to slow down again at a speed camera then get caught AND charged with manslaughter. I mean, I agree with speed cameras, well, actually, not really, only visible ones and ones that don't function (with me knowing they don't function, but manslaughter for killing a kid who should've known people don't observe speed limits, now that's just crazy talk. Off with you you meddling beaurocratic jobsbodies!

Because I'm not Einstein and can't come up with a decent argument why people shouldn't drive at all, I think I should add this resource a link you can share with your energy challenged friends.

Vehicle Certification Agency, an Executive Agency of the Department for Transport compiled data and, using What Car?'s car classification system (supermini, small family, executive and so on), have provided a resource where you can find the 10 lowest CO2 emitters in each category.

So, for example, when Boris goes to buy his deluxe car to drive to his 'unprecedented recession' kness-up he should opt for a BMW 7 series 730d 7 Series F01/F02 saloon (with particle filter) and not a 7 series 7 Series F01/F02 740i saloon. Or he could just get a Morris Minor n', saving the energy spent jotting down the names.
