As you will all be aware, I have a passion for Road Safety. If a road has a 40 mph limit, then drive no faster than 40 mph. Similarly, if a road has a 60 mph limit, then drive no faster than 60 mph on it. Indicate when required. Don’t use a mobile phone whilst driving. If a sign says STOP, then stop. Do not jump a red light. Park neatly. Keep your car tidy. Insure yourself to drive. Pass the driving test. Obey all road signs. Obey all road signs. Obey all road signs.
Which is what I was doing on the M4 on the way to Bristol when I saw the “Keep 2 chevrons apart” sign. The chevrons were painted clearly on the road and I could see I was going to have to accelerate to close to my car’s claimed top speed of 129 mph before I could reduce the gap from the twenty three chevrons between myself and the car in front. I got nicked and now I face a ban and a possible prison sentence. Bastards.
