No joke

By NewarkAdvertiser Reporter


To add to the current comments about unruly traffic in Newark, I saw the latest idiotic behaviour.

Two young males, no crash helmets and no protective clothing, riding what looked like a track motorcycle with no number plate, travelled at a very high speed — estimated to be at or approaching 60mph — from Beaumond Cross through Cartergate and eventually turned right into Baldertongate.

There were many people walking on Cartergate at the time but that appeared to be of no concern to either male.

On the contrary, they both appeared to think it was very funny.

The machine was also excessively noisy but again this appeared to be part of the exhibition.

Never mind about sticking two fingers up to authority, this was more like a whole hand.

Sad really isn’t it? — David Hall, Castle Brewery, Newark.
