“Silent Man” has been causing traffic jams by standing in the middle of traffic for seven years

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

An Englishman dubbed “Silent Man” has caused numerous traffic jams in his home city of Swansea over the last seven years by simply standing in the middle of traffic. Because he never says a word, no one has any idea why he does it.

Ever since 2014, David Hampson has repeatedly hindered traffic by standing in the middle of the road, in the exact same spot. The 51-year-old is subject to a criminal behavior order which forbids him from obstructing any public highway in England and Wales, but judging by his past action, he doesn’t care much about such accusations. In 2018, Hampson was sentenced to three years in prison for blocking the road in exactly the same spot as always, just outside the Swansea Central Police Station. And just as always, he refused to offer any explanation, or say anything else for that matter. The same thing happened the last time he decided to block the road, in December of 2020. Now he faces criminal charges.

He could have mental health issues, but then I'm wondering if he's just homeless and hoping for 3 squares and a roof over his head.

we had such man on bqe right off Brooklyn bridge, he is in a wheel chair, at least ours was asking for money, and does not stop the traffic, he does the best he can to stay out of cars way, but  he still holds up the traffic a bit

So why hasn't he ever been charged all these seven years? Causing traffic jam is bound to get you in trouble for sure and you'd think he would be warned not to do it anymore...
