Buses carry double Carma points

The British Road Authority is worried about the deaths that still occur on Britain's Roads, and has scanned the world for ways to reduce it further without stopping people driving all together.

They have found the solution in the East. King's Lynn to be precise.

After attending a Buddhist ceremony in King's Lynn, Jeremy Hertford the man behind the man who makes the decisions on the country regarding traffic, came up with the solution.

"It's blazingly simple!" he proclaimed. "Karma!"

Hertford believes that if everybody was kinder on the roads, there would be less accidents.

"We're going to rebrand it as Carma though," he said. "Wouldn't want to tread on any copyright issues. The Buddhists might get upset, or something."

The general idea behind Carma is that you let somebody in at a junction, or actually consider other drivers when coming to a stop near a junction so you don't block it. Drivers would stop at zebra crossings, and not dodge through amber lights. And in return, they build up Carma. Carma is spent when wanting to come out at a junction, or cross a road yourself. If you save up sufficient Carma, then a lottery win, or meeting the love of your life might befall you.

And for those people who try to cheat and take advantage?

"Carma's a bitch," said Hertford. "When you least expect it, some bastard will come along and use your car for a car bomb."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
