Silas BS: Learner drivers allowed on UK motorways? (181* d) RE: BS: Learner drivers allowed on UK motorways? 29 Feb 12


OK Don, here you go.


"However, that jacket hanging across a window and effectively tripling the rearward blind spot has been almost a trademark of the breed for over 40 years. It's done so that they meet prospective clients with their jacket in pristine, uncreased condition. Image is everything you know, even coming ahead of safety. There are of course other distinguishing marks such as the models of car they have gravitated to over the years."

I thing generalising about a particular trade or profession like this is a bit daft. I am sure there are reps that drive irresponsibly, but there will be plenty of people in other professions who do too. And not everyone driving a Vectra or Mondeo is a rep you know, some of my best friends drive these type of cars and they are not reps.


"The course would be with an ADI registered instructor who would have to sign off on a satisfactory result, and would include 2 hours motorway instruction, two hours night driving, and two hours on a skid pan learning proper car handling."

Well, totally impractical and unworkable. Not a bad idea in principle, but cannot possibly work

"the unchallenged champions of disgracefully bad driving are the sales reps who consider their work to be more important than the lives of those who share their driving environment."

Again – irrational prejudice against sales reps who, after all, are just doing their job and are amongst the most experienced of road users.

Now, if it were BMW drivers that you were having a pop at…..
