    AAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHH!

    What is it with these people? Can they not see they have a light not working and get it fixed? Having a rant here!

    Just seen 6 cars on my way into Douglas all with a dipped headlight out.....

    It's not difficult to check them or even tell you've only got half the light. GET IT F***ING SORTED!

    And for some reason the Control Room don't seem to give a sh1t! You ring them and get a person that probably couldn't care less if their own chair was on fire! To be fair though - there's a couple of people in there who actually try and do something but the rest come across as useless!

    Rant over!

    i dont really see what the control room are supposed to do, if you have seen these cars with one headlight they are presumably coming towards you and you would not be able to get their number plate.
    Maybe it's because i'm a Douglaser
    That i love Douglas so
    Maybe it's because i'm a Douglaser
    That i think of her wherever i go

    I get a funny feelin inside of me
    Just walkin up and down
    Maybe it's because i'm a Douglaser
    That I love Douglas town!

    It's not difficult to read a number plate - find it really easy - as everyone should unless they have problems with their eyes and shouldn't be driving.... But you try and read it next time and you'll find you can!

    And no it's not on Speed Dial - Just a normal contact!

    Ok let me put it like this.....

    If you were driving down the road went for an overtake, what appeared to be a bike came into view, you carried on the overtake thinking that there would be room only for the "bike" to be a car with a headlight out and you either had a head on or steered into the side of the car you were originally overtaking.........

    Shall I leave it at that? I'm hoping Paul you can draw the pretty pictures or are you so blind you can't see the implications or have the intelligence to change your own light bulb or to get a garage to change it for you? Ok maybe having a big go about it but little annoyed as well so apologies for taking it out here!

    I remember getting pulled for having a tail light out, generally didn't know but changed in 5 mins after the police spoke to me :wink:
    Police said from the back it could look like a motorbike - but then I pointed out that the numberplate all lit up made it pretty obvious that it's a car . . .
    According to 118 118 it's not illegal to follow people while blowing kisses, a past time known commonly as stalking. However they cannot answer adult questions such as "what is the average diameter of the inside of a woman's vagina"
