The SPAD (that's Signals Passed At Danger, for you non-Underground workers earwigging the TW blog) Champ has really excelled himself this time, issuing drivers with wristbands stating that 'Professionalism Prevents Piccadilly SPADs' and 'Piccadilly Drivers Don't SPAD'. Tubeworker wonders when we will have our first SPAD caused by a driver being distracted by reading his/her wristband.
We suggest alternative wristband slogans:
- "SPADs - blame the signals not the drivers"
- "Anti-social hours cause SPADs - 4-day week now"
- or even "SPADs = fact of life"
