Horseriders -they think the road was made for them

That well-known subversive, the Bristol Blogger, sends us a photo of some people nipping out to the shops on horseback.

This is an even more dangerous and antisocial form of dodging road and petrol tax than cycling. Dangerous: no helmets or hi-viz wear, and when you run into them they do more damage to your car.

Antisocial, because they leave more mess on the road, which makes washing your car down on a Sunday morning nastier than usual. And they say our cars are polluting!

The worst part is the way these tax-dodgers act like they own the roads. Here they are, taking up enough space for a car, once that's over they will pootle down the road, slowing down important people and getting upset if you sound your horns at them.

They don't realise, roads were built for cars, not pedestrians, bicycles or horses!

Yes, dammit! Horseriders have had the roads to themselves for at least 2000 years. It's about time they realised that it's time to step aside and let the modern technology take over.
After all, the modern technology hasn't got much time left until its fuel becomes as rare as hen's teeth and costs more than gold bars.
Then the horses can take over again.
So, be fair.
