Again!! Wet roads mean longer safe stopping distances! Why do many drivers think they can stop within the length of my car when on my tail?
Also tail-back is spelt thus: at first I thought we had a new bake-off variant!!

I know what you mean, but also there are a lot of jerks drive that road. Just last Friday I had this moron pull across two lanes of traffic after merging onto the road, he pulled out right in front of me forcing me to brake suddenly.

Stupidly I flashed my headlights at him and he nearly stopped on the road! (I nearly got hit from behind). I hate that road and don't drive it unless I have to, unfortunately there's no other way to get to Lewes.

Are you kidding?

That would mean exerting energy in walking to a bus stop, sitting near strangers, and not sitting in the comfort of their gas guzzler.

Whatever next.

It was a van pulling into the right hand lane without looking - forced the car off the road and into the central reservation. Both drivers are thankfully ok.
