Life in the Slow Lane
Big Bemuddlement "Hi" to the person who was wearing the Peugeot 206 this morning on the southbound M23 J9. Bemuddlement apologies that we didn't see your courteous 'flashing headlamp' signal, (allowing Skye to overtake the Juggernaut she was rapidly heading on collision course with). Bemuddlement suggests that maybe next time, you signal whilst not driving in the Blind Spot of the vehicle you are attempting to signal and instead perform the indication from the position where you threw those splendid 'hand gestures', which were clearly visible due to your subsequent, excellent positioning.
