  23. I drove past the Voe Marina the other day hoping to see some Tirricks, (arctic tern), and was disappointed to see someone had erected a length of rope with flapping plastic ribbons along the length of the breakwater, presumably to scare them away, it’s very sad as this has been a popular nesting spot for many years.
  24. https://myshetland.co.uk/scunnered/ Too much paperwork
  25. There seems to be a lack of Police presence in Da Toon about the nights. I suspect a lot of the cars would be illegal if stopped. Noisy exhausts, dodgy number plates and a fair bit of speeding. Not that I would like to see any speedtraps outside the town . Being in a position of some responsibilty I have tried to call the local constabulary, late at night, to ask them to intercede or even fly the flag, following complaints received and been unable to get a response by calling 101. I didn't feel 999 was a suitable option. I understand they have been having manpower issues and they may have more important things to see to.

  27. Never mind when we are all electric ,then another problem no noise so we will never know they are there, need eyes in the back of our heads ! I'm sure the law has the means to control noise pollution, no matter where it comes from. Guess not enough folk complaining.
  28. It's not the ignition, and it's not a backfire from the cylinders, the real reason is a probable de-cat and/or straight through exhaust. When coming off the accelerator from high rpm the intake vacuum is still high but with the fuel cut off, you get a lean mixture that doesn't ignite in the cylinders, that unburnt fuel will make it's way into the exhaust, when enough builds up, it ignites on the hot exhaust surface and you get that tell tale pop and crackle from the exhaust and the much prized flaming. Some cars do this on purpose from the manufacturer, obviously the more sporty models but still from the likes of Ford and VAG, e.g. Ford STS 24V6. Still, quite illegal to de-cat but not to remove a silencer, and has been for quite some time, but if this does not get policed in an urban environment, which I can state that it does not except for when the rozzers are using it as a tool to disperse supermarket car park meet-ups, other than MOT checks, then I think you're on a hiding to nothing here in Shetland. I used to live many years ago for a time in a town centre near to the police station and county hospital across from a major dual carriageway and so now have nothing to complain about nowadays other than rabbits sneezing and the sheep yelling at each other. I have also typed a lot more waffle than I originally set out to do...
