    I wondered about those scooters when I read the story of the OAP who
    got fined for skating in his town centre [1]. To quote:

    "The by-law states that "no person shall skate, slide or ride on
    rollers, skateboards or other self-propelled vehicles in such a
    manner as to cause danger or annoyance"."

    I would have thought that "other self-propelled vehicles" would have
    included mobility scooters, and keep the menace off our streets,
    unless there is some kind of exemption for them?

    Maybe we should just top anyone over a certain age or anyone who has a
    mobility issue, thus completely eliminating the need for mobility scooters..

    I thought Logun's Run was a fucking wicked idea.

  8. Right then, as the man on the spot, you'll know the answer.
    Does he stick to the narrow 3ft wide inner lane or does he actually
    occupy the inside of the 1st lane? If the former, I fail to see the
