    Do you have to stick a pound coin in?

    Is it carbon or alloy, Or do they keep it real with steel?

    Pulling a wheelie could be a bit of a problem though.

    He must be off his trolley: or he will be when he has to apply the brakes suddenly! ;)

    They do an amphibious version too, I've seen a few of those in the river by me.
     
  6. There's a sign in the carpark of the Tesco near me, saying that if you cross the painted line a brake will apply to one of the trolley wheels, meaning you can't push it or steer it.
     
  7. Is there a special checkout line/till for these?
     
  8. Yeah I hadn't thought of using it inside the store.

    As supermarkets get bigger, it'll take too long to walk along the aisles, but with this...
     
  9. hope it hasn't got a Motspur Park

    I'd have one, but knowing my luck I'd get one with a shakey wheel. ;)

    Must have found the only trolley in tesco without a wonky wheel!
     
  13. from The Meaning Of Liff and related to my post...

    "MOTSPUR (n.)
    The fourth wheel of a supermarket trolley which looks identical to the other tree but renders the trolley completely uncontrollable." (sic)
