  • Keep your eyes on the road and check your mirrors people! Motorcyclists are (generally) keeping an eye out for potential dangers, but we can't predict people doing unpredictable things. Running away doesn't help either. I had somebody clip me, damaging my bike, and drive away, luckily I was uninjured and caught them up to get their details, or a phone photo of the reg plate at least. Mirror - blind spot - then move. Easy. Might save a hefty insurance bill ;) - side note: would be nice if Archant allowed paragraphs and special characters such as the slash

Foundation Street, Ipswich, around a century ago. Little remains of the ancient buildings in this street. This photograph was taken from near the junction of Lower Brook Street.

Foundation Street is one of the oldest streets in Ipswich, connecting the port with the town centre. Buildings which had stood for centuries were demolished in the early 1960s in what was then seen as “improvements”.
