The perils of being a scooter rider
IN REPLY to Mr Durston's remarks, I would like put my twopenneth in.
I was not "disappointed". As a matter of fact I don't know the word disappointed, it does not come into my vocabulary.
I would like to say though, that had that scooter rider's reflexes not been good, I'm afraid the poodle could have finished up as a puddle.
I do not think Mr Durston realises just what scooter riders have to put up with regarding the public, or should I say pedestrians?

They have to contend with anything up to eight people blocking the pavement and just talking away, completely ignoring scooter riders and women with pushchairs trying to get past them; they also do it in the doorway of the Pannier Market.
Also people with mobile phones. They amble along, not caring that people are trying to pass them. It is even worse when they decide to change course and do a sharp about-turn, nearly colliding with the person who was behind them.
So, you see Mr Durston, it's not just the scooter riders who need "addressing", it is also some (notice I did not write all) cyclists, skateboarders, mobile manics and gossipers.
So I can only end this piece by returning that word back to you, sir. I'm sorry if you are disappointed.
