    Default What a strange days driving...

    Had Bristol and back to do today.

    Saw a Scamervan on a bridge on the M4, tell me they are not ZERO tolerence?? Was, as I recall, only at 82 ish, but right behind a Passatt as we were having some fun.. - anyone know the likelyhood?

    Also, came up behind a bright pink Ford Ka Convertable.... blonde chic driving, with massive silver writing all the down the side of the car reading "Barbie is a SL*T". Thought I had fallen asleep at the wheel, but it was real!

    Third and finally, managed to drive sideways up a kirb, over it, back off again, at 50 MPH in the Signum. Didn't even see it, they could just have a "move over" sign instead of a kerb on a slip road. Stopped as soon as possible to look at the damage, I mean I bounced off my seat by an inch, but you know what - nothing. Was amazed, thought the wheel would have been buckled, the impact was so hard my first thought was that someone had hit me!

    Yours, perplexed, and pleased to be home

    Rob
