Usually by tyre operation customers but (probably "authorised waiting area") part of the original planning application lol

Let's play the race card here..
Slow down in built up areas.
30mph is a maximum, not normal operating speeds.
If you are just 'green', not a complete cabbage, I apologise for the racial slur.

I wouldn't trust some of you to drive sheep, let alone a car!
No offence to the black and white dogs here, I meant, the other caulis!

If it's not racism here, it's cynicism, you cannot move for it.
Who cares, if they was clutching a pre-paid, already completed, claim form?
The fact of the matter is, they felt a certain hurt.

Personally, after reading this story, and the subsequent comments, am completing an online claim form, for the pain and suffering, in an empathetic way, that you commenter's have caused me....
My grounds?
I felt that, through the way of labour, by empathy, when my wife endured labour, twice, I had endured, the pain of her suffering. Although, in the case of my wife's pregnancy, I had a small part to play, in starting it.
Therefore, in this similar accident, where some seatbelt, airbag and reduced speed could have, to a certain extent, prevented this accident, we have two daughters, thus you may conclude that..accidents do happen, in the most wondrous of ways, and that, some of us, grateful fathers, live with the love that children bring us.
My claim is based upon that useless coil, in the mattress, that used to keep us apart but, when we got the new feather bed, made us, roll together.
Were it not for the fact that, I had a good, solid, near back-breaking paper round, I would not be, the man that I am today. Which, I suppose, counts for nothing, with you.
In an absolute disparage in of itself, consider it, as worthy of, at least, the very temerity, of any claim...
Accidents happen, without claim upon either of the parties, co- or enjoined.

Please, don't lick your fingers, as you leaf the pages of that dictionary book, to reveal the true meanings of those words...
as it is in the conjugation, lost upon the many, and not the few, the truth of the verbiage.
Take care..

How do you know what caused the accident? Speed is rarely a main factor in collisions, just an easy thing to blame for those who don't know better.

Surely the place for a tyre fitting operation is NOT ON A PUBLIC HIGHWAY although it may be the norm. in Asian countries. Even in Blackburn EU and U.K. rules must apply and be applied by the powers that be. It is not fair to legitimate traders with adequate premises,to allow this dangerous practice to continue.
