101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.
In Lincolnshire the local council will heavily fine farmers who do not clear up mud on the roads. This is not because it will make cars dirty but because mud is slippery when wet and could potentially cause accidents due to skidding. They have to sweep and wash the road until it is clean. They also must put warning signs up stating 'Mud on the Road, slippery when wet'. The fines, I believe, are very high if they do not do this. Personally I don't think this is a 'townie' activity but one of safety.
