Dept. of Transport Initiative- May 2006. Information Release: There is concern over the current driving standards in England so the Dept. of Transport have devised a scheme to identify poor and dangerous drivers. This system will allow all road users to recognise the potentially hazardous and dangerous drivers or those with limited driving skills. Details as follows : From May 2006 all those drivers who are found to be a potential hazard to other road users will be issued with a white flag bearing a red cross. This flag clearly indicates their inability to drive properly. The flags must be attached 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 two flags, one on each side of the car to indicate an even greater lack of skill and limited driving intelligence.
