Anti-social behaviour on Halloween
Referring to the Halloween weekend, Policing and Crime Minister David Hanson MP said:
"We will not tolerate antisocial behaviour on our streets and will seek to stamp it out wherever it happens."
Except when it is committed by drivers, of course. Take a look at the photo above. The Asian woman driver of this car overtook me, then cut across and parked over the pavement and the cycle lane, purely in order to do a spot of shopping at this vegetable stall. 1.20 pm, Hoe Street E17, Halloween (31 October).
She's the classic swaggering yob driver, who knows she can commit thousands of road traffic offences without the corrupt, car-supremacist Metropolitan Police taking the slightest bit of notice.
She's matched by the white male driver of the Jeep reg. T29 TJB, coming up behind her, who is driving along Hoe Street towards the Bakers Arms, steering with one hand while chatting on a handheld mobile phone.
Just after I took these photographs a police car came past going in the opposite direction. Needless to say, the two white male officers inside simply ignored the criminal and anti-social behaviour of these two drivers.
It is hardly surprising that one driver in eight on London's streets is uninsured, when the police blatantly turn a blind eye to the worst kind of driving.
