Get a bloomin' move on! 1

I was out driving Christmas night at about the time Dr Who was on so, of course, there were hardly any cars on the road. So it was really annoying to get stuck behind cars going really slowly when you could see they had completely empty road in front of them. Why do people drive slowly when there is nothing ahead? Not just stick to the speed limit slowly but well below the speed limit slowly. 30 mph in a 40 mph zone. Grrr. Driving isn't fun (not that sort of driving anyway) it's a method of getting from A to B as quickly as possible. Don't you want to get to wherever you are going quicker? Why drag it out even longer by going so slowly?

My father always reckoned that the slowest drivers on the roads were the drivers of sludge covered Austin Maxis. Yet in this area you get old people with new Mercedes and BMWs driving them as if they were old Morris Minors.

Get a bloomin' move on!

  1. Nice sludge coloured Maxi!
    More great British cars please, or perhaps a post on Alec Issigonis?
