Weren't traffic wardens part of the police at the time of filming, as opposed to being council employees today? That could explain the rifle.That's the one. I remember thinking at first it would be absurd to arm a traffic warden but then I thought that with society having collapsed maybe he would be an ex-serviceman and so roped in and handed a weapon and told to get on with it, whatever, it was an extremely evocative scene.
No one used it apart from the Army and I'm not aware of any fired in anger. A practise launch from Cliffe Fort did hit a steamer in the Thames and sank it.there was one, the torpedo, in Cork harbour and parts of the installation still exist. Wasnt it a Norwegian one that was the only one fired in anger?
Another type of reasonably successful monorail was invented by Louis Brennan.. it was gyroscopically stabilised, and in some versions used the flywheel as a power storage device..
Brennan is also interesting in that he invented a wire guided torpedo that was used for harbour defence. These were operated by the Royal Engineers and there used to be one in their museum. There were some fitted to forts and harbours on the south coast and one installation still exists in Hong Kong in a cave underneath the Hong Kong museum of coastal defence at the north end of the harbour on HK island. Worth a visit if you are there!

I do hope that you were being facetious when you made that remark, the ones around where I work just seem to wander around as though they don't have a care in the world and I haven't seen one issue a ticket in ages!When I was in blue serge, the traffic wardens operated out of out Police Station, used Police radios and the Police radio network, but were not 'part of the Police,' they had their own command structure and were nothing to do with us. It was for their protection and of course it was an extra pair of eyes on the ground with instant access to a copper.
Million percent better than the fucking drones that work the streets today.

I'll bet they never got their money from the casino though.
Which State is it in?Although I confess my BMI is well north of where it should be, I still have to say, how the feck do you let yourself get in that state?
No names, no pack drill.
Which State is it in?
I'm reasonably confident that it is in America but could not be certain which of the fifty states it
