    DOT notice

    Important news for all drivers



    THIS DEPT OF TRANSPORT INITIATIVE HAS BEEN RE-LAUNCHED, MAY 2006.



    Information Release.



    Due to the nature of the quality of driving in England the Department of

    Transport has now devised a new scheme in order to identify poor drivers

    and give good drivers the opportunity to recognise them whilst driving. For

    this reason, as from the middle of May 2006, those drivers who are found to

    be driving badly, which includes:

    overtaking in dangerous places;

    hovering within one inch of the car in front;

    stopping sharply;

    speeding in residential areas;

    pulling out without indication;

    performing U turns inappropriately in busy high streets;

    undertaking on motorways and taking up more than one lane in multi lane roads,



    All these drivers will be issued with flags - white with a red cross - signifying their

    inability to drive properly.



    These flags must be clipped to a door of the car and be visible to all

    other drivers and pedestrians.



    Those drivers who have shown particularly poor driving skills will have to

    display a flag on each side of the car to indicate their greater lack of

    skill and general lower intelligence mindset to the general public.



    Please circulate this to as many other motorists as you can so that drivers and

    pedestrians will be aware of the meaning of these flags.



    Department of Transport.

    lol, that would imply the traffic can up to speed enough to cause any real harm in York LOL. Worked outside York a few years back at a place called Tadcaster. Really struggled to understand the real locals! I'm sure my accent was equally hard to understand too. One of the Guys I worked with was convinced that on his trips up to Scotland that the drving was far superiour further North. I told him this was due to reduced traffic so therefore reduced frustration. Who knows!
