The phrase 'get a life' comes to mind..Originally posted by some **** on Transport2000's message board
totally support Transport 2000`s efforts to get Top Gear off the air.
This programme performs a public disservice. Viewers do not have racetracks upon which to emulate the presenters and their driving styles. They only have the public highways where I want to walk and ride my bike and stay in one piece.
This seedy and repugnant programme, watched by millions, must accept some responsibility for the poor driving standards and excess speeding on UK roads. Speed is a factor in at least one-third of road crashes, accounting for around 1200 deaths a year. How ever can this be construed as public service broadcasting? I seethe when I think that my licence fee helps to pay for this!
This dreadful little programme should be replaced with some more balanced reporting on transport, ie putting the environmental/social angle as well. I would like to see the BBC play a higher profile role in educating the public about sustainability issues, for example the contribution of transport to climate change.
Top Gear must be banned. It is nothing short of an outrage, quite the most offensive programme I have ever seen.

Yeah! Another 'lycra clad leftie' cyclist judging by the post he wrote , well , if he wants to ride his bike (i bet its the only ride he gets ffs) on the road then he should pay road tax and insurance like every other fecker.mike_turbo said:hes probably one of the moaning bastards who lives by castle coombe
Typical head up ass attitude, people don't give a **** about things i care deeply about so it must be that they need 'educating'play a higher profile role in educating the public about sustainability issues
They will be trying to get the Flintstones banned next, as they drive in bare feet and the car the own is in an un-roadworthy condition due to holes in the floor! :moon:Bream said:STOP THE PRESS:
