@DEEDOODLE So you don't mind being held up behind a MS but you detest being held up behind the lycra louts - is that correct?
I thought the road tax (or whatever you like to call it) was no longer based on emissions, certainly not for new cars since last year! Clearly the government weren’t raking in enough money with that scheme and it has now reverted to the previous scheme. Low emission cars no longer pay £20 but now pay £170, none of which will go to pay for filling in the pot holes!
@majorp - at least mobile scooters serve a useful purpose of transporting disabled people form a to b. @ER113 - 'cycles make no emissions' maybe not directly, but the emissions they cause by the tail back of vehicles sitting behind them as they part take in their hobby does, may be they should be taxed on that then.

Road to twisty, too narrow and no adequate visibilty. His claim about the speed of vehicles is irrelevant. Speed limits everywhere relate to maximum speeds only and say nothing about minimum speeds. Cycles are ...
Cosy.......?you couldn't swing a cat in there it's so small just what dawlish needs another cafe,.......,
Imagine if you found yourself behind a fleet of mobility scooters, what you have to say about that when their top speed on the road is 10mph?
@burneside , true, so much for 'brexit means brexit'. I'm hoping for a vote of no confidence and then get a new PM. Perhaps Boris and co are waiting to do it after the presidential visit.
Well we seem to have put all our eggs in one basket with our EU membership, and I don't see how May's pretend Brexit is going to change the situation much.
