Thanks to bluetooth portable speakers more are walking around playing their loud "music". Is this acceptable?
Can hardly be heard for cars and motorcycles with modified exhausts.- Confiscate them I say.
Walking around with your face in a mobile is hazardous. Fines?

A very good pair of noise cancelling headphones accompanies me on any journey where I may have to join the great British public. Game changer !

It's all about respect for others, or lack of

Perhaps Plod can be convinced to write a Summons for "Distracted Walking".....same as they do for "Distracted Driving".

Hang up some Video Cameras and use Face ID technology to apprehend the Perps!

In some parts of town the rear end collisions that could cause might be seen as a positive unintended consequence!

There's a thought . Michael Howard ,1994 , proposed "walking with purpose" in the streets to reclaim them from the troublemakers, apologies......socially disadvantaged.
I hope that the new Government Bills from P Patel being read on tuesday will drive the changes that are needed. Fingers crossed.

Get on a public bus in US and see young thugs with skateboards threaten actual mobility impaired old man with a cane
for priority seating. Nothing is done. No people do not know how to behave, future of organized civilization looks bleak.

I have just had a 7 day holiday in a large Hospital and I was absolutely favourably impressed by the Demeanor,care and people skills of the (mostly) young female nurses - lovely to know that there are still some 'normal',well behaved and intelligent people around.
However - meanwhile - I had a bed by the window overlooking the A+E Entrance where the situation was totally different with a fairly regular stream of cop cars/black marias and also individual arrivals of usual A+E patients,at one stage I heard a noise - looked out the window where the cops were busy dragging a hooded female (?) out of the back of a car and into a caged black maria,it was not unusual to see some really dodgy looking people out there.
On a side note I have always thought that TV Hospital Dramas were perhaps a bit over dramatic but there was never a dull moment,in fact too much excitement was usually going on,none of us got much sleep due to noise outside combined with frequent noisy buzzing from the patient call buttons,I asked for a sleeping pill every night LOL.
We did have quite a few laughs though including when an 80 odd year old guy came in for a serious 'op' his voice and accent was absolutely identical to James Bolam from the likely lads - he was deaf as a post though so impossible to just chat to him,I think he was an ex Shipyard Worker and perhaps had done some time in Ships Engine Rooms which explained his deafness.Anyway he went to Theatre for his 'op' at 0800 and he still had not returned to the Ward when I 'escaped' at 2000hrs - hope the old boy is ok.
