No need for bridges or flying cows, just this......Clean up after your f*c*ing self
Like i said before, driving bloody tractors with huge trailers and other contraptions about without a care for other road users.
This particular crossing has no road signs, and is about 15ft away from a outside tap, they should hose the crap off the road, instead of leaving 6"of cow crap all over the road.
Last year a transit van crashed on this corner, after slipping in cow crap.
Ive got nothing against farmers, and would have more respect if they respected other road users
Farmers have a duty of care to clean up after themselves, as do other partys that make a mess.
Oh and btw, where would the countryside go if there were no farmers then
I don't get bits of this at all. You don't think farmers should drive "bloody tractors" with "huge trailers and other contraptions"? What the?! Should truckies not drive big trucks, or fireman not drive big fire-engines? The don't drive these things about for fun, or to piss you off, they do it because the job requires it.
I understand in an ideal world the roads would always be clean and never have cow crap on them, but if you have to move cows across it twice a day you'd spend all day washing it. And if the road is anything like the ones around us, pouring water on it won't result in a clean road, just a road with 6" crap and another 6" of water on it!
As for people crashing, maybe signs should be up, but there is such a thing as driving to the conditions, and if the conditions can be listed as 'slippery due to a healthy covering of crap', I'd be inclined to drive slowly (drive real slow and it doesn't cover your car, too!
The bit about the countryside disappearing? Well it won't, obviously, but all the bits that weren't turned into golf courses would turn to scrub and eventually woodland. Riding only in woodland gets boring, no nice views!
