Due to the nature of the quality of driving in England the Department of Transport has now devised a new scheme through the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority, and the Driving Standards Agency, in order to identify poor drivers and give good drivers the opportunity to recognise them whilst driving.

For this reason, as from the middle of May 2006, those drivers who are found to be driving badly, which includes:

- overtaking in dangerous places
- hovering within one inch of the car in front
- stopping sharply
- speeding in residential areas
- pulling out without indication
- performing U turns inappropriately in busy highstreets
- under taking on motorways and
- taking up more than one lane in multi lane roads

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 mindset 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.

Yours sincerely,

The Department of Transport

:-) although I do occasionally fall foul of undertaking on motorways (although it could just be that my lane is clear and the other lanes are chocka full of drivers who are pulling out and slowing each other down, and hence my lane is flowing faster.

However I don't believe I need the warning flag (which from what I can tell should actually come with a speed restriction as they are coming off and flying across the road)
