While it may be called a festival, unfortunately, the actions of a number of participants are closer to a mob, or a riot. Having been sitting at traffic lights earlier today when 20-30 bikers threaded inbetween cars, revving bikes, and being pretty aggressive generally, I'm not surprised to hear of a couple of nasty accidents.

I'm sure this is a great event for most of the attendees, and a lot of people enjoy the event, unfortunately, the minority, as usual, are messing it all up. I'm also quite sure that the people involved in these accidents were quite likely innocent, and got caught up in something at the wrong time.

Brighton is a very welcoming city, and the number of different events throughout the year make for a very diverse, and interesting place, however, it does appear there are a few events that draw a crowd that is intent on overstepping the mark.

I would love to see the majority at these events start to put their foot down, and ban these hooligans from their events, before their events get irreparably tarnished.

The way that most of these fools were driving around the town, a person could easily mistake it for a race
