Hence this goes back to my original point of re-educating current drivers and new.

Charles, I have no other suggestions.

Off topic but sticking with the highway code:

Someone should teach this guy with how to park correctly. I know that the typical BMW driver takes up two spaces but this dude wants three.

Pah, amateur

I can make an E46 Saloon take up three spaces without trying, six in our local Sainsburys.

Dunk, you brought tears of mirth to my eyes! So what happened, did you eventually fit training wheels? Laughing HAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

But seriously fellers, you ALL have a point. I've driven around Great Britian (completely) twice, through Europe, across the US, many times up & down Florida where my daughter lived, twice around Oz, 8 times across the Nullabore, (Sydney to Perth 3,500k's one way) blah, blah, blah!

There are some absolute most ignoramases in every country. Try 'peak hour' in Rome, Rio, or Cairo sometime!

You Pomme "blokes" are considered WELL DICIPLINED!!! Believe me.

How about fighting your way through New York, Sydney or Melbourne where most cab drivers can't speak English but have a drivers licence??? J-E-A-S-U-S!
Yeah, I know, it's in London too!

English drivers are generaly quite well behaved (HOWL...I hear) and I fully understand that you can only 'guage' something by expierence.

But the most frustrating thing to me (MORE than ALL the good points above), is that in this wide open Brown land I live in, I can be hundreds of miles from the next town, thousands from the next city, cruising at whatever speed, Slim Dusty singing about "The Pub With No Beer" and some bloody copper in an aeroplane will swoop overhead, land on the road, and book me for SPEEDING>>>>>F-A-R-K>>>>>>>>

I'm only guessing, but has the Puma driver just seen a Cougar and had to lie down on the pavement with all the excitement (see large red thing at bottom right of photo..........?)
