CLIVE SMITH: English pigs? Don’t bite the hand that feeds you

Have your say

There’s something that’s been annoying me for a while.

It’s the fact that whenever there’s bad weather, be it snow or rain, it’s almost guaranteed that one out of every four motorists will drive like idiots.

I wonder if the bad weather interferes with indicators being able to work properly.

Perhaps wing mirrors also stop working in inclement conditions.

Windows also seem to stop working, as lane closures and roadworks seem to leap out at some drivers as if shouting ‘surprise’ while simultaneously offering birthday cake and a round of the bumps.

It’s like the roads become a computer game, except you don’t get three lives and it’s generally frowned upon to shoot your way out of trouble.

Take more care, please.
