Hello Bosworth are delighted to publish our first Reader's Letter.
As a considerate and extremely competent male driver I feel compelled to write to you about a menace on our roads, I refer of course to women drivers.
As I sped down Station Road in Bosworth on the school run this morning I couldn’t help but notice how badly parked the cars were. If only the women driving them had put a little more thought into their choice of vehicle things could have been so much better. Yes, the BMW convertible and Audi TT are pretty little numbers but its far easier mounting the steep pavement to get to the best parking spots in a Range Rover or Porsche Cayenne.
It’s not just the choice of car but the drivers themselves that are causing the problems. Only yesterday I saw a vehicle being driven erratically in the fast lane of the motorway. When I pulled alongside to undertake it I could see the woman driving was applying makeup using the rear view mirror. I tried to get her attention by wildly gesticulating through my driver’s window but to no avail. My attention was suddenly caught by a flash of red light in the corner of my eye. The car in front had braked and I had to swerve sharply to avoid an accident. This caused me to lose hold of my razor which dropped into my bowl of cornflakes. In an attempt to catch my razor I knocked over the cup of coffee balanced on my knees and scalded my legs.
I think this is a clear demonstration of the sorts of problem women drivers are causing on the roads today.
