Killer Cars


Many accidents are blamed on slow moving vehicles such as tractors, lorries or caravans on tow but there is a driver far more dangerous and I am not talking about ‘white-van-man’ (although he is), I call him ‘second-driver’. He’s the man in the car who follows the caravan, follows the tractor or lorry but never overtakes. The ‘man-in-a-rush’ behind him who’s life depends on getting from ‘a’ to ‘b’ in twenty minutes not only has to overtake the lorry, he has also to get by ‘second-driver’; he has to overtake them both at once and it takes twice as long; a bend is coming up; they all die.


Do you know I’ve seriously thought about writing a blood-curdling story on this subject?
