Clarksonisms

 

Clarkson's highway code on cyclists: "Trespassers in the motorcars domain, they do not pay road tax and therefore have no right to be on the road, some of them even believe they are going fast enough to not be an obstruction. Run them down to prove them wrong."

  • Just how old is Clarkson? The road tax he's talking about was abolished in 1937. Every taxpayer pays for the roads now, and has for some time.

  • Road tax hasn't existed since 1937. Winston Churchill abolished it because of the false sense of entitlement it gave motorists... which still lingers.

  • Motorists take risks with a cyclist's life that they would not have the guts to be on the receiving end of. They think that they can take a chance of hitting a cyclist and if the bet doesn't come off, well, they won't feel it. Hunt them down and firebomb their home. That will show them there can be repercussions.

  • Thing is it's all just a show, Clarkson bikes quite a lot on his own time. Makes for good TV though!

  • Bicycles were being manufactured prior to the internal combustion engine. So it is the motorists who encroaching into the domain of the cyclist.

  • Umm, I think Clarkson is talking about the UK so the whole 1937 thing doesn't apply, and I'm guessing he was kidding about running down cyclists lol
