Winter's coming.

Winter’s coming. The seasonal ferry services are finishing, mountain passes are closing and police in Scandinavia are saying it’s time to switch to winter tyres. In Finland, 1 October is Reflector Day, from when all pedestrians are required by law to carry a reflector, or wear reflective material, when walking along roads in the dark. You can imagine how Jeremy Clarkson would react to a similar law in the UK, hi-viz vests all round, but it makes sense to us that all road users should take responsibility for themselves.
