Priceless Behaviour in flood times ...

The sign says "Road closed - Access only 5 MPH"





KIND eh ?




SPOT the difference ?





Ahh Nice 4 x 4 driver





NOW ? What does the Highway Code say to do with Horses on the road ?





Ahh ! ... thats it ... Speed up behind them ... making a lot of splashing and noise and OVERTAKE in the racing torrent of water making EVEN MORE SPRAY & NOISE !




IF only it were their home or their Grans etc., ps it cannot be their friends, surely they dont have any (nor brains or compassion)

Re: Priceless Behaviour in flood times ...

Edit : deleted my whinge : flood victims don't need the hassle.

I still think you should not engage in this numberplate behaviour.

Re: Priceless Behaviour in flood times ...

The ROAD is CLOSED and signs ask to DRIVE SLOW 5MPH all of these vehicles are going about 15 and the land rover & white 4x4 40+

I have posted these photos on a NAME & SHAME website hence RED ENLARGED VRN

JUST a little consideration goes a long way ... BOW WAVES CAUSE MORE FLOODING

The BBC News just reported "Police are now fining motorists ignoring Road Closed signs ... and our police are now going to prosecute them Hooray !

In case your have not observed, ... the Land Rover Index Numbers ??? front on windscreen inside ; on rear of LR and on rear of horse trailer are EACH DIFFERENT ! Its probably not even taxed or MOT'd ... :cheers:

Re: Priceless Behaviour in flood times ...

I get the moan and you are probably right, but it's worth remembering some 4x4 drivers may be part of volunteer rescue services (I am - http://react4x4.co.uk/) and would be legitimately going through road closed signs.

Now I'm not saying don't be considerate, but if I was bringing My Land Rover Ambulance to someone would you mind if I was going a little fast (not past the horses they damage cars) or forgot to pick up the right plates to tow something

It's just a single picture does not always tell the whole story... like in this flood picture series

Nice to see you - it's been ages!

Now, I used to ride regularly and I hated road work because, to be honest, the horses don't like it either. Tarmac is incredibly slippy for hooves, maybe worse so with metal shoes. Of course be considerate of horses on the road for this very reason but I do sometimes wonder why some riders ride where they do, so respect has to come from both sides.

Re: Priceless Behaviour in flood times ...

2 things for all to remember.

1) Most cars air intakes are down low.
2) Water does not compress very good.

I have seen "C" shaped connecting rods from engines whose owners thought they could make it through that puddle.

Re: Priceless Behaviour in flood times ...

I would say it is self evident why the horse box trailer driver was in a a bit of a rush.

I assume it was absolutely necessary to ride the horses e.g. to a place of safety, given the conditions. Just to take them out for a hack on flooded roads would be irresponsible.

As other people have noted the camera doesn't lie but also doesn't always tell the full story.

Ian, Riders have been warned that "many manhole or drain covers are missing and to ride in the middle of the road"

PS All my horses and my boys ponies always had ONE Tungsten Tipped Nail in each shoe at the outside for all year around roadwork for fitness and screw holes for studs for hard ground or wet ground show jumping/eventing replacing the screws with the relevant set of studs = no slippy surfaces Saves horses breaking their leg or pelvis in a "slip" accident in the field on a road or on ice

Re: Priceless Behaviour in flood times ...

PS many horses HATE the noise of water splashing up the sides of a trailer and in the back - infact it terrifies most of the horses, they are "unknowing" animals ...

Travelling a live load is not done as this LR Driver

cars have been aquaplaning on the water here ... this LR driver was being reckless in many ways

My neighbour opposite and up the hill was telling me "wife went through the water and car engine died ... Mercedes garage said 'beyond economic repair .. it had water in the engine she thought going fast was the best thing to do ..."

It is difficult listening to such a hilarious story sic and not laughing as this would be construed as being rude, so I had to keep my mouth and eyes wide open ... and make a hasty retreat to tell Nick and break down into laughter indoors

and I do hope more cars conk out and are so very expensive to repair for their stupidity ! ... God moves in mysterious ways

Hi, don't want to be nit pickety, but if your name and shaming, perhaps you should get number plate right, red DT11KWR should read BT11KWR. Don't whether get into trouble naming wrong person.

Re: Priceless Behaviour in flood times ...

Compared to what we have locally these are more puddles than floods?

Pault Thanks for that pernikettyedness I shall check them all

Apparently the Highways Dept., are now going to properly close the road completely - so they have got what they did not want, this rat run to and from the A34 and A303 will be no more

Re: Priceless Behaviour in flood times ...

Last year someone drove too fast through floods and their wave went right over poor Charlie (my car). When I got to the supermarket I found his number plate hanging on by one fixing. I wasn't best pleased. If I'd known about the floods I'd never have gone out.
