      “Not being funny but”

      No you’re being discriminatory.

      Let her off FFS, she’s limited mobility.

        Cool your jets there babe.
        Technically speakin, I am wondering are they legal. I’m not saying lock her the f*** up!

      You know it’s very likely that someone she knows will tell her this is on Broadsheet and your comment could seriously upset her. She could have arthritis or a serious lung or heart condition.

        Well speaking as an obese gentleman myself, I can assure you that if the woman is in fact obese it won’t come as news to her if she reads it here.

            Well it certainly seems to matter to the teenagers around my area. Heartless little fu£kers.

          Hang on SPANX – only 2 days ago you were a toned male model!
          If you’re gonna troll, at least try to keep it consistent..

    With the exception of motorways, roads were not constructed for the sole use of combustion engine traffic. The pedestrian actually has first right of way on roads.

    Mobility scooters may travel at up to 8mph on roads and up to 4mph on footpaths. They ARE legal on roads so stop acting like a group of 60 year old taxi drivers who have serious difficulties processing anything that looks different to a Toyota Avensis.

      KPH or it didn’t happen.
      I’m surprised that they’re exempt from road traffic rules and insurance. You learn somefink new every day.

      There you go , you answered my question above. Thanks.

      As an aside, is life terribly difficult for you? I mean, by getting offended for everyone else it must be almost impossible to crack a smile unless it’s while thinking of your own moral superiority over everyone else.

      1. Supercrazyprices

        I don’t stand idly by while the weak are oppressed. I only offend those who deserve it, like bullies, liars and cheats.

        1. Daddy Wilson

          I have an image of you silhouetted by the setting sun, standing proudly, fists on hips, cape flapping in the dusk breeze,

          But surely being an a$$hole to people will just result in more defensiveness and a$$hole-ishness from everyone?

          (I speak as someone with some experience of being an a$$hole)

      Pedestrians absolutely do NOT have first right of way on roads! I would suggest that you try out your theory in practice but I fear you would not live long.

    Oul lad in Carrigtohill always on the road on his.
    Paths have no dishing between his house and the village so doesn’t have a choice.
    Feel bad for him because the roads are in bits too.

    1. SPANX

      It must be a hilarious sight though!

      How about posting a video? Preferably of him going downhill on a bumpy road.

      1. Disasta

        I’d have to ask his permission before posting it. I wouldn’t be a fan of creeping people.

        Although it is kinda funny. Like one of those jokes you regret laughing at but will again.

        1. SPANX

          Wow…so you’ve gone from “feeling kind of bad for him” to laughing at him behind his back in the space if 7 minutes?

          You mightn’t be able to tell from your screen but I’m hugely enraged right now.

    Sometimes the ‘is it legal’ question is way less important than ‘is it safe’.

  4. Janet, I ate my avatar

    Driving up her backside to take a photo is real classy tho…I’d imagine you don’t feel safe on one of those on a road to start. Legal smegal jaysus turning into Switzerland is Ireland, won’t need cops soon because everyone has neighbours with nothing better to do with their time.

      “Driving up her backside to take a photo”

      Going to have to stop you right there. That’s it. Done.

  5. graeme

    she doesn’t stop at lights either! nearly hit her last week..on the same cross road.

    1. Supercrazyprices

      Why don’t you stop and talk to her instead of being a coward by discussing it here with strangers?

  6. J

    + 1 Supercrazy. Stick to the bikes and cats that look like Ireland, Chompsky . Posting this photo is just nasty.

  7. Paul Davis

    She is a danger to herself and more importantly others, meeting a vehicle doing 10 or 12kph on a 50kph road is very dangerous.

    She should be made to walk, might shift the fat…

  8. dhaughton99

    What she needs now, is that Garda in the Audi from the other day, to do his thing.
