Rocketing Fuels prices but we still have

Yesterday- A day by the Seaside
Trundling down the A/M2 a quiet drive at a modest
rate to maximise MPG.
And again coming home -In particular coming home 5/6 ish - 'Rush Hour 'and it seems that the escalating fuel prices seemed not to deter those the like to drive with the 'Pedal to the Metal'
Surely not all 'Company Drivers'

People driving home after a hard day don`t need someone like you trundling along in front of them, all they want is to get home A.S.A.P.

It is not just those you call "Pedal to the Metal" that cause accidents but the drivers who go so slow in front of them that people get frustrated and so take risks that would not other wise be taken.

Sorry did not intend to add insult to injury by miss spelling your name.

Time is money

labour costs more than fuel

more sales = more bonus to off set the price of fuel.

I had to go pick a friend up at Luton Airport yesterday.There and back without a hold up except at the airport itself.Just wondering if there is less traffic on the roads because of the fuel price.

Particularly in the morning 'School Run' found to be not entirely necessary perhaps

That was perhaps a little acerbic from you.
As a 'Pro driver' for more then 50 years I can assure you I don't hang about nor do I wear a 'flat 'at and smoke a pipe in the middle lane.
Though I have to say there were a few if those yesterday too. ;-}

"That was perhaps a little acerbic from you."

Yes perhaps it was rather so due apologies to you.
Perhaps I have been too long on this forum and it is rubbing off on me from some of the others.

I always tear along at 56! except on M/way then I whizz along at 70

  jack 14:51 20 Jun 2008

whizz along at 70
Not in the 50MPH restricted zones I hope ;-}

Round Britain powerboat race, starting on Saturday. These forty-nine craft will really burn it up if conditions allow around seventy mph to be maintained on the stages. The entry fee is a minimum of £25k, by the way, but who's counting? TC. click here

I have never exceeded the speed limit or broken the law. Honest. I do get annoyed by drivers who try to attach themselves to my towball though.
