I'd like to know who decides what articles we are invited to comment on!

Some beggar belief. Have we caught the big nose robber yet?
How about the perpetual burglar only getting 12 months community service!

Me too! 'They' are allowing comments on a serious RTC here and yet the story on the accident at failed lights on Manchester Road is blocked. The headline is "Failure of lights causes Manchester Road accident in Bradford"...

1) I have never seen, or heard of, an incident where a set of traffic lights leapt out in front of a vehicle to cause a collision. The 'accident' was caused by at least one driver failing to stop/drive appropriately in the circumstances!

2) What a surprise that one of the drivers involved was a taxi driver - a so-called 'professional' driver. 15 minutes on Bradford roads will show how 'professional' this class of driver is! As an aside, I'm surprised that they still actually come and pick me up anymore as I regularly comment on their driving when it infringes the law - one journey in 3, I would estimate, includes one or more endorsable traffic offences.

3) And just to be pedantic...it's no longer an 'accident' - it's a 'collision'; an accident implies a lack of fault; the law presumes (in practice, if not in its letter) that there is some fault until investigations exonerate those involved.

Look - I feel so much better for that.... :-)

Finally - I hope the guy mentioned in this article makes a full recovery.
