I don’t think it’s absurd to drive your car just enough to keep it in good health. You’re not risking spreading the virus so long as you don’t get out the car until you’re back home (unless you’re going to the shops, exercising or whatever other essential business you have).brid wrote: ↑Fri Apr 24, 2020 9:23 amI see your forum name is based on a mythical giant with a hundred eyes, the all seeing one.
Pity you cannot use such foresight to obey your very soft and lenient UK lock down rules.
I could tell you a sad true story about a person who thought that this was a game but I doubt you would SEE the point.
It would make your battery, and that of many others, seem a little irrelevant.
Have a nice drive in the country.
Some of us are suffering financially right now and don’t want to add to that with overpriced replacement car parts due to stationary wear.
The police would do well to focus on the rule-breaking that is actually resulting in fatalities: people out sunbathing with friends; people exercising outdoors very close to others; parties; etc.
This whole situation just needs common sense applied to everything you do but unfortunately a large majority of the country were too stupid to apply such thinking and that is why the rules ended up in place - rules that haven’t totally been thought through.
In fact one of the reasons I take my car now to walk my dog is that I’m sick of joggers/cyclists going right past me, breathing heavily, spitting and so on. So please don’t assume that just because we take our cars out that we don’t care about spreading the virus.
