I believe they're still animals.

I'd go with a horse.

Between then and now I hadn't given the leather issue much thought, this thread prompted a minor epiphany with regard to major advances in vegan shoe technology and availability.
It probably won't surprise you to learn that there is a shoe shop here in veggie-vegan-centric Brighton called Vegan shoes. I did own a pair of their trainers for a while but they didn't last that long.

Upon closer inspection, it turns out that I have inadvertently purchased several pairs of vegan shoes, both of which (one pair trainers, one pair walking boots) have lasted very well and are comfortable and practical

There isn't room on the shelf of shame, it's full of Alfa thermostats and Jaguar climate control valves.

I did some rationalising of my tool boxes last summer and I think I may have left them on the box with all my Imperial stuff in it that I threw in a corner.

The camera is at a set of lights. I saw the flash but thought the limit on the stretch I was on had 50 limit and it was on the other side.

For the second time in my life I've been caught speeding in an area where, had I been caught a few years ago, my speed would have been perfectly ok.

It's about 10 years since my last indiscretion so I'll be offered the course instead of the points.

Ce la vie
Was it here (see link below)? RedSpeed camera? I got flashed :O on this camera because I was not even aware such a device existed. I thought it was only a red light camera.
I have driven through this section so many times prior and must have been doing no more than 40. I don't recall how much over the limit I was doing but it wasn't much. :-/

I did a speeding course and learned that my recently sold 159 could be opened from a large distance. My car was parked at Middlebrook (Bolton's ground retail) and I was on the foot bridge over one of the entry roads and with the key fob to my head it worked well.

Anyway location..
https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.50...7i13312!8i6656

Camera car is at the RedSpeed camera. Just FYI there is another one of these at the Moorside Rd East Lancs Junction, Swinton bound. They are currently only red light cameras Liverpool bound. This is because nobody is speeding to leave Manchester for Liverpool but obviously everyone wants out of Liverpool (ducks and runs).

I'm not going anywhere, I'm just going.
Statements above are all my own opinion and not fact.

Maybe you need something between the ears to make it work.

There was one in the King's Road Chelsea from the 70s onwards,
quite near Ho Lee Fook Chinese restaurant

There was also an Italian ladies shoe shop in Chiswick called Shusella's - took me years before I got the pun
