So, the police force an uninsured vehicle into a neighbour's fence - demolishing it.

Now, who is going to pay for that?

Not a candidate ....

He knew not to look into the l@ser beam because it's not safe for your vision to do so. No, you shine it on a light-colored object instead, such as the palm of your hand ....

Remember, folks, for a Darwin Award, you have to have left the gene pool without ever having polluted it! These latest mentions are all of people who are still paddling around happily in the pool's shallow end.

Can answer that one, as it happens: the jolly lads of the Met demolished both my and neighbour's front fence at the end of a chase. Paid the claim for damage without demur or delay.

Warning! . . .

Do NOT attempt to walk on or near the Pope Lick trestles at any time for any reason! You will be arrested if caught!

The Pope Lick trestles fences near the top on either side are there for your protection, do NOT try to climb the fence. You will be arrested if caught!

ThePope Lick trestles geography of this location makes it impossible to hear a train whistle until it is too late.

Trains go by Pope Lick trestles the frequently!

Dozens of people have tragically died there at the location of the Pope Lick trestles either from being struck by a train or from jumping off or falling off the trestle to avoid a train. These deaths are NOT an urban legend; they are real.
