Some people who drive on our local roads are a serious concern. In two days, I’ve seen two serious incidents. They could have resulted in far worse outcomes.
I can’t decide whether sitting in one’s car, with the hazard lights on, ‘flashing’ on-coming traffic, or standing in the middle of the road (looking like a loony, trying to stop cars from crashing), is more effective. So many drivers ignore these obvious warning signs and go on, speeding.
In my experience, everyone is in a ‘hurry’. I’m not referring to tourists stopping in the middle of the road whilst they consult their maps.
I’m talking about locals, who know the roads so well that they think they can drive them blindfolded.
Please be sensible drivers. Our children depend upon it. They are on our buses. Please don’t be negligent.
