On Jeremy Vines lunch-time show he's asking the listeners to vote 'Which vehicle we would prefer not too see on our roads?

Which one would you like to see removed then?

Those civilianised HMMWVs - Hummers - far too wide for UK roads, and virtually the ultimate gas-guzzler....

Nice to see Jeremy tackles those tough issues that really matter to people Laughing

Tha Audi A6 that tried to carve me up at the Southcoates roundabout this morning, and the car for whom 79mph on the A63 isn't fast enough.

I would rather abolish bad drivers than a particular type of vehicle.

School buses and coaches. They're a complete pain! They clog up the lanes around the Sailyour Country Estate and they should be banned - and the little darlings should be forced to walk to school like they did in the good old days.

You mean 'Tesco Tractors'?
In the thread 'One thing that really makes you fed up' I cite 'Foglight pratts' as I call them. Well those vehicles where it seems they cannot be turned off when it's not foggy are the thing I'd like sent to the motoring 'room 101'.

That a little unfair as I wouldn't want my kids if they had to travel on a school bus, and that was withdrawn have to walk to and home from school. At least one thing we can protect them from these dangers.

The problem with people they are in a rush so much and only consider themselves as the only person on the road and forget about everyone else around them. I say it's hard luck if you have to wait for a coach or a bus.

Why vote any vehicle off the road, so long as they are legal they have a right to be there and probably a purpose that is important to every day life. We can all be a pain to somebody else, lets just calm down, live and let live.

They're a pest! Get them off the roads now! Enough is enough! When my kids are late getting to their private school (usually because they've kept our chauffeur waiting) there's nothing more inconvenient than them getting stuck behind those silly, smoke-belching school buses. If they can't afford chauffeurs they should be made to walk!

Honestly...... Rolling Eyes
