    Any body know this grey waste dribbler? He emptied some of his grey waste at Aire Sur l'Adore Aire and then proceeded a to drop the remainder along the D932 to outskirts of Aire Sur l'Adore after a visit Lidl.
    Waster!!

    If you don't drop waste I wouldn't put your picture up.
    Being a biker it's nearly as lethal as diesel..

    We've all done it, empty into bucket and dispose of then when 'empty' forget to close the tap and dribble when we move. Not intentionally but dribble none the less.

    Can't believe it upset you to the point of taking a picture and then trying to shame the owners. Maybe not good practice, however, a lot worse gets washed onto the road when it rains, assume holiday not going too well?

    Ashamed to admit that we have done that as well, unintentionally ...... hopefully not a lot of water left in the tank as it will have mostly gone into the bucket.

    Everyone's done it at some point.

    Does it really matter?

    I'm a biker as well and I've got to say that if you're that worried about a little bit of soapy water on the road you need to ask yourself the question as to whether you should really be riding at all. You'll hit worse things than that pretty much every day unless you're the ultimate fair weather rider.

    You said he dropped his waste at the aire, so all he's done is driven off with his tap open. Could be a genuine mistake which some of us have made as well.

    Whose behaviour is more offensive? A bloke makes a mistake or you...lurking around taking a picture of someone's van, including their licence plate and posting it onto the Internet?

    If it obviously bothers you that much why didn't you mention it to the bloke?
    Instead of trying to publicly shame him?


    Tell me how many bikers have been killed by driving through a dribble of soapy water?

    I've done it a few times unintentionally but only the dribbles after empting the tank. Found out although on my van you can't open the waste valve with the engine running, if you then start the engine the valve remains open I had expected it to close, which would be the sensible way of wiring it.

    I have done it a few times intentionally when I first got the van.

    I am of course older and wiser now

    Edit - come to think of it I intentionally did it with fresh water rather than waste.

    It's ok if you dribble waste in Norfolk for a while as it will soak in to all the mud on the road from the sugar beet lorries/tractors running about.

    Oh how times change!
    I've not been on Fun that many years, but I well remember how incensed the general consensus used to be about grey waste being dropped on the roads, filming car windscreens and bikers' face shields, making the road slippery, inhaling the misted scummy water..... :rolleyes:

    Yes but a bit different if it's most of a tank being dribbled as opposed to the dregs from the tank after emptying.

    I hope the bit that would have come from our tank after the tap was left open went onto the field and farm track and not on the road :)
