SO, Mr R Peters, now you know how all the powered two-wheelers feel the other 364 days of the year while we have to sit morning and evening in traffic jams or Bank Holiday jams or when you think there might a fuel shortage (or any other shortage.

On your way to work tomorrow morning, have a look in all the saloon cars and count the number of driver-only commuters. When I checked last week it was more than 90%.

That's pollution and needless congestion for you, and if you still don't believe me, ask the Polar Bears.

If you're still not convinced you're welcome to come and talk to me or any of my staff at Aprilia Merseyside Motorcycles in Wallasey.
