Prevention is always better

WHAT I find rather refreshing on my recent visits to Eastbourne, with my past lifeguard eyes, is that I’ve seen, unlike the other resort of Brighton, you don’t seem to have law-flouting cyclists, who pedal on pavements where they could be a hindrance to pedestrians and cycle up one way streets, where in a self-centred crass mode, they don’t seem to realise the size of their conveyance compared to a car in a possible unnecessary collision, which could turn out to be fatal for them. When in Bermuda and Brighton as a beach-lifeguard, my motto when on duty was ‘prevention’ which is why I wrote this letter.
