    A few years ago when I had a Sierra I was driving under the flyover just coming into Bangor (my hometown) when 3 little glipes decided to off load a full bucket of water on to me as I drove under. It may have only been water but it hit bang on the windscreen and by the time I realised what had happened and got my wipers on to clear my view, I had travelled a good 100yds down the road blind!

    Luckily I got stopped safely and once I'd got my head together I turned round and went up onto the flyover. By the the time I done this and got through the traffic lights at the top I was coming onto the flyover just in time to catch the stupid wee ****ers with a replenished bucket of water about to repeat their party piece!

    I was very shocked to find that the 3 wee lads were no older than 9 or 10. Like wtf, at that age I was playing on my Bmx. Not chucking buckets of water off bridges trying to kill people!!!

    Needless to say lots of swearing followed along with the threat of calling the police ( a good kicking in the back of an RUC landrover would probably have done the the power of good!) soon sent them packing crying their eyes out, But by god I would have happily throttled them myself .

    Still makes my blood boil to this day so I feel for you. Im just glad no one was hurt and the car can always be fixed.

    Ming - I dont think bored is an adequate excuse. Somebody could be killed by these kids "games". Its a pre-meditated act and that in my book is attempted murder. The law should deal with this whether they are under 16 or not.

    Yes, I know its no excuse Smee, but if the kids were occupied to do other things - then trying to kill someone wouldn't be on their minds.

    Shocking stuff. There was a guy who was killed on the M3 a few years ago when a piece of concrete went through the windscreen from a motorway bridge. Since reading about that, I always seem to notice kids standing on bridges. You just never know.

    Me too, it's always worrying to see people standing on bridges over motorways. Makes me wonder what they are up to?
    I do wonder how they get these ideas, I saw not so long ago some video footage of a couple of t*ats putting a railway sleeper across a line hoping to dislodge a train!!! What is the matter with them and what can we do about it ??
