Information Release.

Due to deterioration in the quality of driving in England, the Department of Transport has re-launched a scheme to identify poor drivers and give good drivers the opportunity to recognise them whilst driving.

From the middle of May 2006 the scheme will operate to identify drivers who are found to be driving badly, including:
- overtaking in dangerous places
- breaking the two second distance rule
- stopping sharply
- speeding in residential areas
- pulling out without indication
- performing U turns inappropriately in busy high streets
- under taking on motorways and taking up more than one lane in multi lane roads

These drivers will be issued with flags, white with a red cross, signifying their inability to drive properly. These flags must be clipped to a door of the car and be visible to all other drivers and pedestrians.

Those drivers who have shown particularly poor driving skills will have to display a flag on each side of the car to indicate their greater lack of skill and general lower intelligence to the general public.

Please circulate this to as many other motorists as you can so that drivers and pedestrians will be aware of the meaning of these flags.

Department of Transport.
