Coroners are like buses

March 9, 2013

What is with coroners writing to the relevant authorities or calling for new laws at the end of an inquest. They always seem to call for the law to be changed after a hard case or after the authorities didn’t implement an existing law. Well you feel like it’s always after you get three, one […]

Thumbnail image for 40mph speed limit

All this talk about speed limits is like a red flag to a driver. It defiantly gets a lot of people putting pen to paper. We might actually end up with a person in front of every car holding a red flag. Not to warn other road users of an oncoming car as they used […]
