    Dominic Cummings alleged breach of lockdown rules discussion

    The fact he won’t even say sorry says it all. His arrogance is extraordinary. So many holes in this story, since when do you decide to drive 30 miles to test your eyesight. Even if the Durham trip wasn’t illegal, this clearly was.

    Dominic Cummings alleged breach of lockdown rules discussion

    Keeping everyone waiting just shows the utter contempt he has for ordinary people. Not that he should be doing this anyway. Clearly it’s he who really runs the government

    Signalling Centre Roles

    If you’re talking a ROC type environment you’ll also have route control. A whole host of different roles exist in there

    Enforcement of the new rules on social distancing, unnecessary journeys etc.

    I completely agree in this circumstance and I think the unfortunate family on the receiving end of this were much more patient than many would have been. In fact I wonder if she’d have even set foot in the garden if it was fenced off. I certainly would have told her straight it wasn’t illegal...

    Enforcement of the new rules on social distancing, unnecessary journeys etc.

    https://twitter.com/grandad1975/status/1248247686563631104?s=21 Seen this video doing the rounds last night. In it a SYP Officer tells a family they can’t be in their front garden. No where in any regulations is this the case, and in fact the government have explicitly said you can be on your...

    Enforcement of the new rules on social distancing, unnecessary journeys etc.

    Nobody is disputing the actual good in adhering to the guidelines but the police are not there to enforce ‘guidelines’ or ‘opinions’ they are there to enforce the law. What some forces have been doing is not this and that should be called out. If the government wanted their guidelines to be...

    Enforcement of the new rules on social distancing, unnecessary journeys etc.

    Which is what they should be focusing on. Not lone dog walkers, bench sitters or people out for 1hr and 15minutes of exercise.

    Enforcement of the new rules on social distancing, unnecessary journeys etc.

    Exactly, people are more than happy to respect the principle of the regulations until you start getting their backs up, which I think the police risk doing with some of the over the top approaches we are starting to see.

    Coronavirus.

    Same with Prince Charles. The U.K.’s testing regime is a joke and nothing will improve until this is acknowledged at the top.

    Enforcement of the new rules on social distancing, unnecessary journeys etc.

    Which is fine until you come to enforcement, you can’t enforce a principle.

    Enforcement of the new rules on social distancing, unnecessary journeys etc.

    I think the issue is that in the regulations there is nothing actually stopping people doing what they were doing in Derbyshire, and my concern is that the Police’s overzealous interpretations will have the opposite impact. When you read the regulations, they’re so wild and contain so many get...

    Is there a speed restriction between Burton and Derby?

    Only ESR I think on currently is a 60mph just north of Burton but it’s one bridge and shouldn’t affect timings too much.

    Government advice discussion

    I do wish we could stop talking about victims having ‘underlying health conditions’ as if it means that this virus is fine. Without knowing the specifics it could well be that many of these people lived perfectly normal lives with their ‘condition’ and would’ve lived perfectly normal lives for...

    Government advice discussion

    Have to say I find it absolutely ridiculous this is being allowed to continue and actually quite selfish. Unnecessary socialising leads to people infecting others even when they don’t know about it because they’re asymptomatic. It could literally Kill. I saw reports on C4 of one woman saying...

    Rules query: yellow handsignal at a crossing

    More of a tricky question for you rules experts comes if you’re an Intermediate SB with a MCB outside. Would you display a Yellow or Green handsignal?

    Sheffield station congestion

    but drivers are still shown a correct sequence and should be aware of the approaching signal?

    Sheffield station congestion

    Am I right in thinking that what Sheffield needs is something a-la Derby? Major remodel and re-signalling for modern traffic flows. Any operators able to shed any light?
