    MAY 2006

    Information Release.

    Due to the nature and quality of driving in England, the Department of Transport has 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
    * under-taking on motorways
    * taking up more than one lane in multi-lane roads.

    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 even greater lack of skill and generally 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..
  2. It's true.

    I was shown that by a cop in the pub last week.
  3. I bet persistent offenders get issued a free white van to drive and masters of the art a black London taxi :? 8O :x
  4. Thanks for the clarification. I thought they were all marked for a cull.

    As Scots law differs from that dahn saff, I take it that we will not have to suffer this flag flying in God's country?

    AY :wink:
