Subject: RE: BS: Phone related traffic deaths
Me and the mrs both took driving lessons over a number of years...
She was too timid and indecive, and failed three tests..

I was, shall we say, 'very assertive' and keen to drive as fast as the instructor would permit me.
But I constantly stalled on T junctions.
I took two courses of lessons but never completed either to take a test,
because money ran out both times...
I was probably safer to myself and other road users sticking with a bicycle...
We couldn't afford to run a car anyway.....

Now I've gradually given up cycling due to health issues
[bikes been gathering dust for 3 or 4 years],
and the public transport service round here is shite...
Probaly won't even be any bus passes left when I reach the right age...

That just leaves me as a pavement warrior for justice...
