The last time i posted pics of my 330d after it was newly washed/detailed - a couple of folks asked how dirty was it before I started, and that I should have posted a 'before' pic as well as the 'after' ones.
The car left Scotland last week absolutely spotless - for me there is something psychologically satisfying about setting off in a pristine vehicle - even when I know that it could well be filthy before I even reach Carlisle.
I'm now in the 'Land of Far, Far, Away' - that's BiH by the way, and nothing to do with the Shrek films.
I encountered a couple of really heavy downpours on the way which removed a fair amount of the fly detritus but they were replaced on the journey south from Austria through Slovenia and Croatia on the Ex-Yugoslav ironically named 'Autoput za Bratsvo i Jedinstvo' which translates as 'Motorway of Brotherhood and Unity'.
As we all know Tito's 'togetherness' collapsed into wars and ethnic cleansing.
Anyhow, all that is in the past (20+ years ago)...
Title is a bit tongue in cheek, but some days remind you we do need autonomous cars, as many driver's ability is so bad. I had virtually all of them today.
The brake checkers, for no reason at all.
Erratic speed drivers, even on a clear and straight road, dropping back to 40mph.
Those who have no idea of which lane to use on a roundabout, even with specific road markings.
No indicators, even where there are specific signs "please signal".
Sudden braking and turning off, again without signals.
The wanderer, all over the road, out to the line and next moment in the kerb.
The constant speed driver, no idea they have entered a 30mph zone. (Usually 40 - 45mph everywhere).
The only one missing today was the driver on your bumper, when is a steady traffic flow.
I wager many of these drivers are the first to say "autonomous cars won't be as safe as having a human in control".
