Important Notice from the DVLA

Due to the nature of the quality of driving in England the Department of Transport has now devised a new scheme through the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority, and the Driving Standards Agency, 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 highstreets
- under taking on motorways and
- taking up more than one lane in multi lane roads

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.


Yours sincerely,

The Department of Transport

While driving Carolyn to the station the other day we saw what must be the poorest driver in all of the UK:

* 6 flags, 3 down each side of the van (serial offender obviously)
* Back doors to van painted with red cross (some kind of reversing offence?)
* Bunting running from the top of the aerial to the back corners (presumably minor infractions, bumps in car parks, etc)
* 1 huge flag flying from the aerial (wonder what he did to get that one!)
