New department of transport regulations

Recommended Posts

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 recognize 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 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 mind set 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.
