Is flooding new to this town? And if Terry Lowther falls asleep on the job, doesn't he think himself, it is time to pack it in?

I find some drivers are too impatient. When there is a queue of traffic, drivers tend to get too close to the vehicle in front of them and can only therefore see the rear of the vehicle in front of them. If they were to hang back a little they could observe more of what is going on up ahead. If drivers were to pay attention, they would know that the traffic is slowing down or even stopping.

Why is it so well known as CRIMEbrook. Well word has it that many of the houses there are bought with funny money and then rented out. I am also told that out of the 1500 houses built there so far, almost 50% are bought with funny money then rented out. If you were a drugs tycon, would you want to live there? - I doubt it.
