Strange reaction from the local authorities. The hospital located in Brent, London has apparently been the scene of a few misguided bikers racing their motorcycles alongside the hospital. As we all know, you are expected not to make noise when riding, or driving, alongside a hospital. So no loud pipes, no honking, no revving up, etc.

So what do the local authorities do? See the photo:

UK Not Allowed For Motorcycles

The forbid motorcycles from entering the road, and now they have to ride all the way around the hospital. It's a moronic reaction, blame all bikers from the bad actions of a few. Of course cars will never, ever, honk their horns when driving past a hospital?

It is a stupid and very discriminatory rule. Cars make noise, but it is the bikers that have the bad reps, so they are penalized. I wonder if it is legal, since most bikes pay their taxes, so they should be able to use any road. If the hospital really wants to curb speeding, put in chicanes or speed bumps.

The British Motorcycles Federation, BMF Open link in a new window, is on the case and are talking to the local authorities to have the sign removed. If not, we could always do it for them.
