Chitty Chitty Ban Ban

What About The Steering Committee?

The "flying car" Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was banned from a British lord mayor's procession – because the vehicle is not appropriately road-registered. Thousands of people were looking forward to seeing the car in Norwich, but authorities said the paperwork was more important than public opinion.

Seriously? They didn't think ahead to get it road-registered? Of course, since it's a 'flying car', I might not have thought of it, either. ;)

File this one under "Are you bleeping kidding me??"

I can't even think of words for just how monumentally stupid this is. It's not like they're taking the thing on holiday for a week... it's a parade you imbeciles!

They should take it over here, any car is allowed on the road - after given a road worthy licence, you never have to renew it again. Seriously, we have have some drive sheds, no floor, no brakes!

Keeps life interesting.

WHAT? that is the coolest car ever made! I love that movie and even though it's an old car, I still wish I had one just like it! I would have been one terribly dissappointed person at that parade!

What a stupid lot of British red tape! Make me ashamed to be a Brit sometimes - Why don't they do something important like repairing our economy or locking up weirdos or something - Eddie
