"I regard this as a bad case of careless driving and bordering on dangerous," said Judge Sampson.

Careful you don't exaggerate, your honor.

The woman became caught in a tractor fork and was carried, screaming, along Clifton Lane in Nottingham.

Jack Codd, 85, then failed to stop at the scene but later explained he had not wanted to cause an obstruction.


No, we wouldn't want other drivers inconveniced by a farmer pulling snagged pedestrians off of his forklift.
You can do that at the nearest parking lot.

/Amazed his defence wasn't She shouldn't have left the kitchen in the first place!

If you took the governors off a forklift engine, you could get one going pretty damn fast. The only way to stop it though, would be to ram it into something - their brakes are more like bicycle brakes than actual brakes.

He tried to kill her with a fork lift.

Olé!

I'm not going to RTFA and just assume that the women were all very large, bigger than a size 14.

It's easy to pick up chicks with a Mercedes tractor. Bet he had to be at the gym in 26 minutes

Pram as if in perambulator, I think pushchair is the correct term pram is a colloquialism.

Later took a refresher course and was deemed fit to drive. Well, there's your problem right there.

Codd later took a refresher course with the AA and was told he was fit to drive, Mr Achurch said.

Before that, he drank like a fish.

Clean and Sober. After 12 steps.

Meh, I'm not really fussed. It seems that when there's a BBC article people look for something to pick on. I would aim for the 'bordering on dangerous' line ... I mean really, an 85 year old driving a tractor isn't dangerous enough, even when they crash into someone it's only considered careless.

On a separate note what kind of Olympic coverage are you guys getting? From the Fark threads it sounds like it's just a couple of hours of NBC

Anyone else have trouble understanding the lingo they used?

My 1954 tractor (Allis Chalmers WD45) had a drop bucket on it. The old guy who previously owned it needed it to carry things around. He had steps installed on the PTO shield and had to lift his legs by grabbing his pant legs. The brakes were just belts that applied to drums in the axle. When the belts overheated, they wouldn't stop much at all. Top speed was 11 MPH and it was pretty loud. Don't know how you wouldn't know it was coming down the road.

That said, it's all conjecture until we find out what model of Mercedes tractor.

/Ferrari made a beautiful 60HP articulated.
//Couldn't afford repairs the that old Allis and got rid of it before moving back to the city. Miss that tractor.
