Department of transport driving standards initiative

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 recognise them
whilst driving.

For this reason, as from the middle of May 2006, this applies to
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
-taking up more than one lane in multi lane roads,

These drivers 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 mindset 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.
