The New Grey Peril.
How long will it be before the Chief Constable of North Wales begins parking horse boxes manned by armed police officers with speed guns on the street corners of Llanrwst and Porthmadog. Perhaps he'll decide to use ice cream vehicles or one of these new 'mobile' sub post office vans that are going to be popping up to replace all the proper post offices that are being closed by the Government at the moment. He'll have to find some way of clamping down on the new scourge of the High street. I must admit to a close escape myself as walking out of Barclay's Bank in Welshpool last week. I swear she was doing 10 mph (it is slightly downhill). Never even saw me. I only just spotted her in time. It really is only a matter of time until there are fixed penalty charges for any elderly person who exceeds the speed limit while driving a mobility scooter. Our town centres aret no longer safe.
