And something that annoys me here is two threads by the same person asking the same question.....
When I did advanced driver training I was taught NEVER to accept that ^^^ kind of "courtesy". In fact, the exact thing happened to me on my advanced test. The other driver got very arsey when he finally cottoned-on that I wasn't going to pull in front of him, was obviously shouting bile at me, and gesticulating that I am a self-abuser. Had I taken him up on his kind offer, I would have failed the test.For reasons that needn't detain us, I was sitting in slow traffic early this morning on a main arterial road leading to the city of Hereford. At one point I stopped to allow a smart young lady in a smart new Audi to join the traffic queue from my left.
I gesticulated with a courteous wave of my hand to signal to her that she was free to move in front of me. I repeated the wave and flashed my headlamps but, alas, to no avail. Her Audi remained stationary, as did she.
The woman did nothing except gawp at me. She continued gawping, most vacantly. 'Twas a kind of gawp that told me that the power supply was working - probably - but a break had occurred in one of the cables, so I continued my dreary journey. She, presumably, did not.
Quite!I don't tend to let people out and don't expect to be let out. The main reason being that I find it's not always possible to have a full view of the road around the other vehicles and you can never be sure if there is a motorcyclist overtaking somewhere or a cyclist undertaking that you just can't see. I also tend to find that if I do let someone in they then decide to crawl along and let someone else in at every turning.
Pah! That malarky is no good to me, in its current (excuse the pun) state. I need a car that will do at least 350 miles without the need to stop for an hour or more to fully recharge. I'll be sticking with my dirty diesel with its 500 mile range for the foreseeable - probably the rest of my driving lifetime.thought you were all going to plug in your electric cars
I happened to mention to her who should be obayed thinking of getting a electric car , there was a short silence and she said , come of it you already have 138 of them isn't that enough, oh boyPah!
