At last. It's a nascent scheme but seems to be going well, Notts CC was on LBC - he said women get vile abuse and it causes them to change their behaviour and that's unacceptable. They have already arrested people!

Presenter was a twat. 'Are police really going to waste their time arresting people for jokes about women drivers' he sneered.

But what good news. Apparently it's a trial that's being looked at with interest by other forces.

Intriguing...

Whuly does it have to be too complex to cope with?!? We're always saying on here "replace 'woman' with 'black guy's or 'Indian', then you have your answer" - why can't more people just have this in front of mind? Grrr. angry

Did they give examples of the type of thing that got the men arrested?
