Why are we obsessed about driving when the sun shines?

A little bit of sunshine and it’s suddenly time for us all to sit in long traffic jams.

What is it with the south coast obsession about getting in a car as soon as the sun comes out?

Do we not have beautiful enough places on our own doorsteps that we can walk or bike to?

I’m sure there’s something here about wanting to enjoy the rays in the most comfortable spot, but why do we all have to drive to it – especially with windows down at eight miles an hour (if we’re lucky)?

And don’t get me started on those who try to snag a parking spot way above their skill levels. Parallel parking is all well and good, but a warm Sunday afternoon on the seafront is not a good time to start practising.
