Drivers warned ahead of cold snap

With snow and icy weather forecasted to take hold this weekend, North Yorkshire Police are advising drivers to keep safe.

The cold snap is predicted to last about two weeks so drivers are urged to be prepared.

Insp Vicky Taylor said: “If your route is affected by snow or ice, the first thing you need to consider is whether or not your journey is actually necessary.

"If you have no choice and have to travel in wintry weather, it is vital to give yourself more time, take extra care and adjust your driving to the conditions. 

"This could be lowering your speed, increasing braking distances and making sure lights are on even during the day. It is also vital to ensure your vehicle is well maintained and prepared for the conditions.”

I must remember to give them all a cheery wave as I cycle past the inevitable gridlock that a couple of snowflakes creates.

Mind I don't clip your waving hand as I pass you in my cosy, warm 4x4.

Not if you're driving in the Water Lane/Clifton Green area. Evening traffic has been a joke this week. Would be so much quicker to get on my bike.

Luckily for me I don't use the area. But if I did, I certainly be on my bike.

If it does I'll have to be careful with that screwdriver I might be carrying in case anything gets scratched.

Oh I won't mind. Rather have a scratched car than broken bones.

Bearing in mind you're legally supposed to give as much room as overtaking a car when overtaking a cyclist and have stated you are intending to run down anyone on a bicycle that passes you in congestion that waves at you, I'd say that if you commit an offence and get caught, these postings will prove premeditated assault with a deadly weapon and you'll serve time. I'm not quite sure you belong in York's community.

For your info. Idiot.

Tongue-in-cheek is a phrase used as a figure of speech to imply that a statement or other production is humorously or otherwise not seriously intended and it should not be taken at face value.

Yeah sure, as if other people have NEVER said that when they get caught out and accused of making threats!!

There is the anti-cycling part of York's community you're probably welcome in... AP Cox, Sillybillies and Mike Usherwood will give you a welcome pack which includes a free cookie, a lapel badge, and a handbook of all the anti-cycling cliché's and insults you can shout out at cyclists.

Meanwhile, it might be time for me to test drive my Baodecia handlebar attachments.... ;-)

If you care to read back you'll notice that I mention that I also ride a bike. I have also in past posts defended cyclists from the so called anti cyclist lobby. And one more point. I guess it's ok for someone on a bike to joke about using sharp instruments to damage cars, but not the other way around eh?

Pompous idiot. And yes, you deserve the insult.
