Can you spot the different drivers?

One of the regular in-car games that I play with my grandchildren is to identify other road users.

The Middle Lane Owners Club

They stick rigidly in the middle lane of every motorway, driving at a constant 52 mph, preventing trucks from overtaking.

Centre White Line Shufflers

These drivers insist on keeping their front wheels almost on the centre lines.

Constant Speed Club

They drive at a steady 40mph on all roads throughout the country.

Caravan Syndrome Society

These drivers hang on closely to the vehicle ahead as it emerges into a main road. They live by the principle that if there is room for one car there is definitely room for a second.

Continuing Caravan Syndrome Society

These are the drivers who know that they can emerge even when they are third or fourth in a queue.

Inter-lane Weavers & Wanderer's Fraternity

Membership of this body is offered free with every motorcycle.

Pavement Hugger

These pedestrians keep one foot right near the edge of the gutter, twitching their backsides every now and again as if to dart across the road.

Push-chair Pushers Assisted Suicide Society

These can best be identified by looking for the terrified faces of the push-chair occupants who are about to be 'assisted'. Most of these can be found emerging between parked cars.
