Where do you park a burning car?

DISBELIEF has greeted Public Services’s decision to order a woman whose car caught fire to stump up £1,000 for repairs needed to the tiny section of road upon which it came to a halt.

A hole lot of waste

I SEE today (24 February 2014) that the Vazon coast road is closed in sections for the next five weeks. No problem, I thought, until I saw what was going on. It appears that the road is being ripped up, presumably to be resurfaced at some point. This road is probably the best-surfaced road on the island and is in no way needing any refurbishment. What a complete waste of time and money, not to mention five weeks of inconvenience to drivers. In five weeks, the French could probably build five miles of motorway.
