Well done Paul.

Sorry to hear of the ideas famine - I've not even switched on my main camera for almost two months - got a band reunion gig coming up and have been practicing when not doing house or car maintenance. And now our 16 year old has passed her equivalent of the highway code test* (aced it!) there is another car in the garage to look after.

* you may wonder why she has her own car - here the rules are that at 16 you take your code exam during a series of compulsory driving lessons. At the end of the course of lessons the driving school grant a certificate to drive accompanied by a responsible adult. So the young driver is on the road for 18 months supervised, followed by a final driving test. So at seventeen and a half they can be on the road solo.

And despite all of this training the French still drive like idiots and tailgate as if it were obligatory. Hey ho.

Well done Jinky. Really liked your photo.

Sounds like you're busy H. You'd like to think the roads in France would be a nice place to be.
I've driven quite a bit in Europe. I find France OK but agree with  your point about tailgating, Belgium is awful to drive in. I find the drivers aggressive. Holland is a joy to drive in.  Relaxed with good she well maintained roads.
May the Force be with you.

Chris

I know it's a bit off topic, but I couldn't agree more about Belgian drivers. A few days ago one of them stopped in front of me on a 90kph main road, halfway around a curve, just because he had seen a truck coming the other way. The (obviously tailgating) French driver behind me skittered to an ABS assisted halt about a metre behind me. I've seen them completely blocking T junctions while they take phone calls/read a map/pick their noses. I even found a Belgian registered Renault Espace sideways across a country lane, completely blocking it, and again halfway around a bend. The driver was reading something.

Very late reaction, but I am losing interest in CC as, yet again, it seems to have died.
Still vote though, and my vote went to the winner. Congratulations Jinky.

About Belgian drivers/driving: it is within living memory (somewhere in the sixties), that compulsory licenses were introduced in Belgium. Till then anyone could be in charge of a vehicle. I believe anyone who asked for one at that time, got a license.

This may explain the chaotic driving skills of old drivers. And maybe because of that, when tests were introduced, they did not really have a good, strict example of how to drive safely. (My interpretation.)
